I'm really looking forward to this one. It's rare to see a film version of this novel.


I really enjoyed this adaptation of Northanger Abbey. I had seen an earlier version, the 1986 one from the BBC, and I think they got more of the humor in the book in this version. I do wish that it could have been a half hour longer though.

Book Club Girl

I agree - though this was the first adaptation I'd seen, I was glad they understood the tongue-in-cheek style in which the book was written. But I definitely did feel like it got wrapped up very quickly in the last 20 minutes. So far I like this one better than Persuasion, which I also watched via tivo this weekend. I think that perhaps that is not my favorite novel. Everything is rather sad, and minus the great repartee between hero and heroine that you get in other Austen novels.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
