Northanger Abbey

By Jane Austen

It's been a while since I read a classic, and I believe I haven't even read one since I started my writing classes, so I wanted to examine a few writing issues in classic novels, especially after reading a book that jumped through POVs liberally, which is something often done in classic, by using omniscient POV. But, to my surprise, this novel used a pretty close third person POV. I've read many of Jane Austen's books, and have always liked her observations of society and human nature. I loved the subtext in this book and the wittiness with which she displays hypocrisy and greed.  [251 pp.]
