Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
I've never read a Jane Austen book because -ehn- I'm not big into romance and they all seem to be of the chick-lit romance genre, so no. But I thought I should, at least once, see what all the fuss is about so Northanger Abbey seemed like a good one to start with. And yes it was a sweet, funny, romantic story but I'm not tripping over myself to get my hands on any other Austen books for the time being. I've scanned the blurbs and they all sound like more of the same: lots of pomp, ceremony, romance, entitlements and inheritances. I don't know, am I missing something? The historical aspect is interesting and all but that's about it for me.
