When the young clergyman Henry Tilney is to be the hero, as in so many of the Gothic novels that he so fond of reading, the perverseness of his upbringing in a medieval home with a choleric, militaristic father, an aggrieved, sickly mother, his burlesque lothario of an older brother and a kindly, pretty sister cannot prevent him.

Henry Tilney is the leading man in Jane Austen's novel Northanger Abbey. The younger son of a local landowner, Tilney is comfortably placed as a beneficed clergyman on his father's estate. Tilney, with his teasing yet kind-hearted mentorship of Catherine, has been considered the nicest of Austen's heroes. At the same time, with his knowledge of muslin and of Gothic novels, he is the least masculine of heroes.

A charming retelling of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey--a tale of gothic misunderstandings through Henry Tilney's eyes...

When the General takes an unusual liking to Catherine and invites her to visit the Abbey, Henry is thrilled. But just as in the Gothic novels Henry loves, not everything is as it seems...

Henry Tilney, arguably Austen's best, most complexly romantic, but less heralded male character in comparison to Darcy, is delivered a gut punch in this trite and inaccurate, mostly plagiarized and awful romp. A good portion of it is just regurgitated dialogue plagiarism and a failed and blathering novel within novel attempt (in offensive italic) of a wholly unconnected story, which I can only guess exists to honor some word count contract or author ego from a rejected, faux gothic publication treatment since it adds nothing to the storyline of Northanger through Henry's 'perspective.' The 'diary' is not even in the universe of Henry's believable, studied perspective, or close to Henry's voice, but more of an 8th grade girl's cut and paste journal entry having never actually read or comprehended Northanger (or Austen nuance) in favor of Sparknotes in time to meet a deadline? Just lazy. Yuck. The typos will astound you too. I feel my adoration in imaginative Henry Tilney motivations of Northanger Abbey is poisoned now. I wish I could unread it. The attempt could have been grand, and yes it has a few bland, sophomoric wish fulfillment sentences in it, but it does far more damage to a fan than it provides, like a ratio of 98% wreckage to 2% silly little uncharacteristic wish fulfillment. I would like to ask the author, if you loathe the Austen hero Henry so much, why did you take a paycheck to spread this rot on me, the duped reader? Ugh. Spend your hard earned funds on the 2007 Masterpiece Northanger Abbey production instead. JJ Feild delivers the best emotive Henry Tilney to be had anywhere outside Austen's actual novel and your imagination to date - with a mere head tilt, you're won. Thank me later. (Negative stars, like, minus 2).

This is Northanger Abbey from Henry Tilney’s point-of-view. The diary is divided into three parts: the first being Henry at sixteen as the family is going through the loss of the mother, the second part is the year preceding the events of Northanger Abbey, and the third and largest part follows Henry’s view of the events from the book Northanger Abbey. One of the things I liked best about this interpretation is the way Frederick is portrayed and his reasons for pursuing Isabella Thorpe directly under her fiancé’s nose. Of all of Austen’s heroines, I probably have always liked Catherine least (too naive, almost to the point of being stupid) and could never understand Tilney’s fascination with her, but I rather liked the idea that given all the artful flirts both Tilney brothers must have been exposed to over the years, that the marked contrast in Catherine would make a huge impression. I believe you could read this book without ever having read Northanger Abbey and still fully enjoy it (it contains many extensive passages from the book verbatim, in fact, I could have done with a little less). Very entertaining take on a great classic!

The book was interesting enough. It wasn't amazing, but if you love Mr Tilney, you will enjoy his view of things. I did like how some characters were better explained and I loved seeing Tilney's view of everything.

I was bummed though that my booked arrived seriously bent. I tried to straighten it out, but the cover is so thin, a tear could start any moment.

I enjoyed this book, and it took me a couple hours to finish it. It tied together Henry's thoughts about everything nicely and I understand how he would fall in love with someone as boring as Catherine Morland. That is how I saw her in this book--too naive, too ignorant, too trusting, too shy. I suppose that is how she is supposed to look (after all, she is only a very young, very country woman), but I just didn't like it. My interpretation of Catherine was completely different than Grange's, but it seemed she fit the bill for dear Henry. It was a nice companion to Northanger Abbey, but I will probably not read it again.

An enjoyable read for anyone who loves Austen and wants to continue reading about her characters. There wasn't really any excitement in it. I actually found the first half of the book more interesting than the second which was after he met Catherine. I liked finding out about his childhood and would have enjoyed reading more of it.

There were some errors in terms of forms of address, but it was so entertaining on the whole. I especially enjoyed the characters' dialogue respecting the Gothic novels. I was also very amused by the old Viscount and his sons all being struck by the same bolt of lightening, thus enabling Mr Morris to succeed to the title. Bravo! I think Jane Austen herself would be highly diverted!

I enjoyed this book. I love re-reading the story from another's perspective, especially when you get a little more insight into that person.
Love Amanda Grange's Austen hero diaries series - the whole lot of them. She does a wonderful job of staying true to the character and the language, while giving us a little bit more. Easy to read and follow - delightfully entertaining.
