Book - Northanger Abbey

For a classic, I expected too much of this one. I found this one to be rather boring in the suspense of what was going on at Northanger Abbey and while I could tell what Jane Austen was trying to do, it fell short (in my opinion). I did like some of the characters and even some of the story although the constant asides to tell the reader things about the heroine or hero was a bit distracting from the narrative of the story itself. I am interested in finding out if she used this sort of writing style in other works (I simply don't remember). ( )
