The adaptation was straightforward, sticking to the text of the original. The blurb says "lovingly" adapted, but I think "indifferently" would be more accurate. I don't think anything was gained in the move to a visual medium, though there were opportunities to make it shine.
Still, if you liked the source material, and your expectations toward the artwork aren't overblown, this is a fun way to read Northanger Abbey.
Jane Austen never got around to publishing "Northanger Abbey" in her lifetime. It apparently was one of the first novels she wrote, but as a broad parody of the popular gothic novels of the day, she may have feared its comedy had already exceeded its shelf life. It is known that she tinkered with the novel for years. Her brother and executor finally offered it up for publication after her death, based on the literary reputation of her earlier work.
As presented in this graphic novel, "Northanger Abbey" is a nicely balanced mix of comedy, parody, and romance. The heroine, one Catherine Morland, is young and naive. Her impressions of the world depend heavily on a steady diet of gothic romances. Her first trip away from home with family friends finds the seventeen year-old plunged into the fast social whirl of the resort city of Bath. She makes new friends, some of whom will take advantage of her. Fortunately, Catherine also meets a respectable brother and sister, Henry and Eleanor Tilney. The attentions of Henry Tilney are especially welcome to the impressionable Catherine. An invitation to visit the family home of Northanger Abbey and meet the stern General Tilney is irresistable, until Catherine discovers she may walked into the middle of a real-life Gothic mystery...
"Northanger Abbey" is very highly recommended as another superb graphic novel adaptation of a Jane Austen novel.
The graphic novel follows the path of the original telling how young Catherine Morland journeyed to Bath with the Allens, a couple from the neighborhood for his health. There her adventure begins which leads to amusements, friendships, misunderstandings, and maybe love.
The storyline and dialogue are lively and interesting. It is an abbreviation of the original yet all the highlights are there giving the spirit and heart of the story. I loved the exact quotes.
The artistic renderings took a bit for me to get used to, but the artist had obviously paid attention to description so that the characters were easily known. Their expressions and movements were fun.
All in all, I had a good time reading this as a diverting way to enjoy a familiar and loved story.
These versions are excellent for teens, or someone who is looking to get a light version of what the book is about. It's really summed up nicely, and even as an Austen fan, I sometimes feel overwhelmed by all the little details she provides. Lee's illustration style is fantastic too. I love the angular quality of the characters and the bold lines. Note that the cover art is nothing like the artwork throughout the comic, but both are beautifully done.
