A timeless adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel about growing up and getting it all wrong, told in an accessible, energetic style.
Catherine Morland has grown up in the country, with only sensational novels and pop culture to inform her of life beyond the village. Leaving home for the first time, she expects brooding heroes, ruthless bandits and glorious adventures to await her.
They don’t. After all, reality is more complicated.
Catherine discovers that friends can hurt, heroes aren’t always nice, and evil is sometimes just a point of view. How can real people be understood when they say one thing and mean another? In Bath and then Northanger Abbey, Catherine must learn how to navigate between what is real about love, friendship and strange men…and what is not.
Remarkably inventive ★★★★
