Nachtsturm Castle  
Has anyone else read the recent Northanger sequel Nachtsturm Castle, by Emily Snyder?  I thought it was enjoyable and lighthearted, but not consistently in character.  I found myself often laughing out loud at the wit of the narration, which was very much in the spirit of Austen.  Nevertheless, my beloved Catherine was perhaps a trifle too dim, though I can certainly excuse it due to the satirical nature of the story.  A quick, worth-while read.

I'd love to hear opinions from whatever small community we have left out there!

Oooh, I was not aware there was a sequel based on NA. I'm a sucker for Austen sequels and derivatives, and I was hoping for something just like this. I'll be keeping an eye out for it

Hadn't heard of this - who wrote it? I'll see if it's in the library system.

Also, how was Mr. Tilney? Was Eleanor in it? How does it compare to "There Must Be Murder" by Sullivan?
