I wrapped up Austen Month by rereading Northanger Abbey and I’m so pleased with my choice. I thought I first read this when I was blogging, but it doesn’t look like I’ve got a review anywhere. I did rate it 2.5 stars initially and I know it wasn’t until I read the Marvel comic adaptation along with the modern novelization by Val McDermind that I understood the tone Austen was going for.
So, given the significant change in my star rating (I’d put it at 4.5 now) I thought I’d revisit my thoughts with this re-review.
