Mr. Tilney is my absolute favorite Austen hero, followed by Captain Wentworth then Bingley. What? D'arcy's number four?? Is she crazy??
Mr. Tilney flirts my ideal way and that minimal criteria has set him apart from the others.
Even with the aside to the audience about novels (that can be and is skipped after the first reading), Northanger Abbey is short, sweet, and leaves you with that glow. You even get some context as to what kids read in those days! Imagine!
Read every Austen novel, ignore Mark Twain, then read them again--especially Northanger Abbey.
This novel rates 5-stars -- but NOT this particular Open Road edition of it, because there are no italics showing words Austen chose to emphasize. Austen didn't use a lot of italics, but when she did, it was done quite deliberately to make subtle points. Readers of this edition will not be made aware of those nuances.
Sadly, the public domain edition of PERSUASION also lacks italics, or I would recommend that one instead -- but at least it is FREE. Therefore, my advice is to skip both of them and spend $1.99 to get THE COMPLETE WORKS OF JANE AUSTEN from Palmera; that edition shows italics in all but one of her major works, the odd exception being NORTHANGER ABBEY. (The otherwise great Delphi complete edition omits italics from two books, NORTHANGER ABBEY and PERSUASION. But more than a few other ebook publishers omit italics in ALL her works.)
Austen is a true wordsmith, and her novels (all delightful) are witty and insightful, true to the the conventions and social protocol of her times as well as to human nature -- especially in matters of the heart. Her books are solidly written and entertaining; they should be published and read the way she intended them to be, with certain words emphasized by italics or ALL CAPS or __even this__. [To see the recommended edition, type "Palmera Complete Austen" in the Kindle Store searchbox.]
The best additions, however, are the appendices on social rank, dancing, and the navy, and the deleted chapter that was the original ending of "Persuasion".
