Is It Possible….
…to read too many novels?
That was the question posed by the hero of last night’s Masterpiece production of Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey, which I loved, loved, LOVED!!!! Did you see it?
Mr. Northanger Abbey. Hot or Not?
I do think, in Cathy Moreland’s case, it wasn’t a case of her reading too many novels, but rather of letting them go to her head (although it was HIGHLY entertaining for us viewers…at least until Cathy went too far–poor thing. But she WAS genuinely sorry for it).
Anyway, Northanger Abbey made my weekend. If you didn’t get to see it, don’t despair—the DVD is already available. I DVR’d it, and have already played parts of it over, like, ten times. He Who Shall Not Be Named In This Blog keeps walking in and going, “Didn’t you already watch this?” to which I reply, “Yes, but you keep walking in and TALKING during the best parts!”
And, if you can’t afford the DVD, never fear—THERE’S A BOOK!
It’s actually one of my favorites.
Happy viewing (and reading)!
