    It was dry!

    If you love Jane Austen and want to read everything about her, then you might like this book. I personally forced myself to read it only because I purchased it. I found it hard to follow because the author goes from talking about her to talking about one of her novels in the same paragraph. Then he gets caught up in other people in her family and what they think. I really regret purchasing it.

    This is a wonderful book that gives you insight into the world of Jane Austen.It includes segments of her personal letters and descriptions of what they are about and their background. Also it points out where she drew ideas from for her novels and gives great information on her early works that aren't as well known. I definately recommend this book for any lover of Jane Austen.

    The Life of Jane Austin

    The material in this book was fascinating and so informative. It was hard to put down. If you are a fan of Jane Austin you will want to read about her life.
