    One thought on “Catharine”

    1. This incomplete novel could have been re-worked into a novel. Elements of silliness like Catherine Moorland (Northanger Abbey) and crazy love of balls like Lydia and Kitty (Pride and Prejudice). Element of a rascal of a young man like John Thorpe (Northanger Abbey) . Elements of social satire about rascal-ly young men and willful young women, their introductions and dances. Even a rather prudish aunt thrown in (Mrs Norristown in another incarnation). All characters common enough to a Austen nove [...]

    2. Μια νουβέλα από τα νεανικά της Όστιν, προάγγελος του υπόλοιπου έργου της.

    3. Catharine é um dos primeiros e incompletos romances de Jane Austen. Não tinha conhecimento deste livro até há uns dias atrás, e fiquei muito curiosa em relação ao mesmo. É um livro bastante pequeno mas extremamente agradável de ler, como é habitual nos romances desta autora. O livro conta parte da vida de uma adolescente, Catharine, que perdeu os pais quando era muito jovem, e que passou a ser criada pela sua tia solteirona. Como em todas as obras de Jane Austen, a personagem principal [...]

    4. I would give up naps for a whole month to find out what happen to Edward the rake. And I love nap time the way only an overworked adult does. I guess we will never know.Both Catharine and The Watsons were started but abandoned before Sense and Sensibility was published. So I'm going to read that next.

    5. παπαρίτσα ήταν, αλλά του δίνω κάποια αξία ως πρώιμο δείγμα γραφής της Οστιν, άλλωστε όταν το έγραψε ήταν 17 χρονών, φαινόντουσαν όμως τα πρώτα ψήγματα διακωμώδησης της κοινωνίας και της εποχής που ζούσε

    6. I love all Jane Austen novels and of course I like this one, too. I think it was written between 1787 and 1793. It`s about this orphaned girl, Catharine, who lives with her aunt. She is all alone after her two best friend leave her. Then one day the Stanley`s come to visit. Their daughter, Camile, is really boring and only cares about fashion and music. She doesn`t read the same books Catharine reads.So they don`t have anything to talk about.(It`s mostly Camile talking about her new hat. And tha [...]

    7. Tal como referido na sinopse, Catharine é um romance incompleto de Jane Austen. Como fã desta escritora tão peculiar e única não pude deixar de resistir a adquirir mais esta obra, mesmo por terminar, e juntá-la às muitas outras que tenho.Surpreendo-me sempre com o reconhecimento que esta escrita provoca em mim. Podia jurar que se me dessem várias obras, saberia apontar qual delas seria de Austen. A maneira de escrever, as palavras que escolhe para determinados momentos, as suas personage [...]

    8. Written in 1792, when Austen was only 17, it nonetheless shows what enormous literary talent she already had. In just 62 pages, Austen manages to sketch the characters efficiently and well: Catharine Percival, thoughtful, intelligent, spirited and vivacious, if a little naïve; Camilla Stanley, shallow, flighty and self-contradictory; Edward Stanley, young, handsome, very vain and provocative. The bower of the title was constructed by Catharine and her dear friends Cecilia and Mary Wynne, and is [...]

    9. Esta pequena e incompleta obra é igualmente uma das primeiras obras escritas de Jane Austen.É uma pena que Austen não a tenha acabado, pois o que o início é BOM MUITO BOM.Em meras 61 páginas temos invejas, desilusões, ilusões amorosas, sonhos destruídos ou pelo menos abafados, e um mistério sobre um desaparecimento súbito.Ou seja, este é um prelúdio de uma obra literária de qualidade e que nos capta o interesse desde logo.Na minha opinião, querida Austen, preferia que tivesses aca [...]

    10. Um conto muito curto, e que me soube, a quero mais, quero saber o que acontece á Catharine e ao Edward. Uma época passada em que haviam regras de conduta, que nos dias de hoje nos fazem rir. A escrita da Jane é tão cativante, que quando entramos no seu mundo, eu confesso fico completamente "apanhada".

    11. Surprisingly, I really loved this! I wasn't expecting to because I've never got on with Jane Austen before, but I feel like this may be the beginning of a long friendship Mansfield Park is next once I get through all of the reservations that have just come my way in the library!

    12. It is a shame we do not know where JA was leading these characters. But I now know where one of my favourite Jane Austen quotes comes from; " but for my own part, if a book is well written, I always find it too short."

    13. it started out in classic jane austen style and i was quite enjoying it, but i didn't know that it was one of her unfinished works, and so i can't really give it a rating

    14. This book ended too quickly for my liking but you can see what a talented writer Austen was in such a short space of lines!

    15. I WISH THIS NOVEL WAS COMPLETE!!!! I love Jane Austen and all of her stories are so touching. This one was no different and had such potential to become just as beloved as her other works.

    16. Very quick read. It's good but it leaves you hanging since it's unfinished.Would love to know where she meant to take the story
