Shapard's "Annotated Northanger Abbey "brings Austen's world into richer focus. Northanger Abbey is Austen’s satire, and she pokes fun at gothic horror books by having her heroine, Catherine, believe she’s essentially in one. And so much good comes out of this.

Chapter 1 of the Jane Austen novel Northanger Abbey. Chapter 1. No one who had ever seen Catherine Morland in her infancy would have supposed her born to be an heroine. Her situation in life, the character of her father and mother, her own person and disposition, were all equally against her. Her father was a clergyman, without being neglected, or poor, and a very respectable man, though his name was Richard - and he had never been handsome. He had a considerable independence besides two good livings - and he was not in the least addicted to locking up his daughters.

The Annotated Northanger Abbey edited by the incomparable David M. Shapard is pure delight! As a member of the Jane Austen Society of North America I have read all of Jane Austen's six published novels many times. However, I have never enjoyed their perusal more than in devouring all six of the annotated novels edited by David Shapard! Over 1200 notes aid the reader in understanding the Austen world of two hundred years ago! Period illustrations and drawings of the Georgian age are also printed.
Jane Austen (1775-1817) was a genius and in this early novel first published in 1803 that brilliance is on display. The heroine is Catherine Moreland a seventeen year old girl who is innocent of men, society living in a bookish world of gothic novels. Catherine adores such spooky works as The Castle of Udolpho by Ann Radciffe. She travels to Bath for a six week sojourn with the Allen family (Mrs Allen is fatuous and uncouth). In Bath she falls in love with Henry Tilney a wealthy young aristocrat.. They visit his home Northanger Abbey where Catherine believes evil deeds have occurred. She also must deal with Henry's father the evil General Tilney All is resolved in the end and Catherine and Henry are a happy couple.
Jane Austen and Charles Dickens will always be my favorite authors. I wish she had lived longer and written more books! I also hope David Shapard will annotate other classic novels. If you are teaching Jane Austen to students this is the inexpensive series I would recommend. Superb!

I had read Northanger Abbey twice before, and although I enjoyed it, it was never a favorite. This is the first time that I read this annotated version, and the annotations made ALL THE DIFFERENCE. Also, the rendering of this kindle version is much better than the rendering for the same author's Annotated Pride and Prejudice, which was terrible. On my iPad, the rendering was terrific. The rendering of the annotations on my Kindle Paperwhite was problematic, and kept showing ERROR messages, so I eventually gave up reading it there. I only wish this author had an Annotated Mansfield Park, because that's up next during my summer reread of Jane Austen. I am following along with William Deresiewicz's "A Jane Austen Education: How Six Novels Taught Me About Love, Friendship, and the Things That Really Matter".

Just finished reading NA on Kindle with the Annotated version next to me to look up all the references. I would generally read a chapter, then go back and read the annotations to gain the maximum from the work. Since many reviews of Austen's story exist elsewhere, this review is specifically for the Annotated version. I recently decided to work my way through Austen's work, having never been exposed in high school or college. Based on other recommendations, I've been acquiring the Annotated books as companions to my Kindle versions (reviewed separately). As others have pointed out, the annotations are extensive and run the gamut from explaining the meaning of words and phrases as used in Austen's time to descriptions of manners and life-style of the period. More particularly, I enjoyed the explanations and interpretations from a more literary point of view of the story as satire with the provided background of the referenced novels and how the characters are revealed over the course of the novel. The book is liberally illustrated showing the referenced mode of dress, architecture, and various items to place the story in context. I feel that I got more enjoyment and understanding of the novel by reading the annotations and reviewing the illustrations. The annotations were done very well, being easy to read and enjoyable, and I'm looking forward to reading the other annotated versions from this publisher.

I also enjoyed the story but have, perhaps, been conditioned over my many years to enjoy character development and description of mannerisms and settings as a literary style. It does show some of Austen's youthfulness in the telling as compared to her more "mature" works such as Pride and Prejudice or Emma, but was still enjoyable. As stated, reviews of the novel itself are abundant elsewhere, but if you've decided to read or re-read the novel, I highly recommend this annotated version.
