Meet the Author

Jane Austen
Jane Austen's delightful, carefully wrought novels of manners remain surprisingly relevant, nearly 200 years after they were first published. Her novels -- Pride and Prejudice and Emma among them -- are those rare books that offer us a glimpse at the mores of a specific period while addressing the complexities of love, honor, and responsibility that still intrigue us today.

Biography

In 1801, George Austen retired from the clergy, and Jane, Cassandra, and their parents took up residence in Bath, a fashionable town Jane liked far less than her native village. Jane seems to have written little during this period. When Mr. Austen died in 1805, the three women, Mrs. Austen and her daughters, moved first to Southampton and then, partly subsidized by Jane's brothers, occupied a house in Chawton, a village not unlike Jane's first home. There she began to work on writing and pursued publishing once more, leading to the anonymous publication of Sense and Sensibility in 1811 and Pride and Prejudice in 1813, to modestly good reviews.

Known for her cheerful, modest, and witty character, Jane Austen had a busy family and social life, but as far as we know very little direct romantic experience. There were early flirtations, a quickly retracted agreement to marry the wealthy brother of a friend, and a rumored short-lived attachment -- while she was traveling -- that has not been verified. Her last years were quiet and devoted to family, friends, and writing her final novels. In 1817 she had to interrupt work on her last and unfinished novel, Sanditon, because she fell ill. She died on July 18, 1817, in Winchester, where she had been taken for medical treatment. After her death, her novels Northanger Abbey and Persuasion were published, together with a biographical notice, due to the efforts of her brother Henry. Austen is buried in Winchester Cathedral.

    Great format for those who don't need pre-read commentary.

    The books are always interesting, but this was a great way to have them all. The only chapter headings in the nook formatting are the books themselves, so make sure you know how to use the bookmarks and search features if you're looking for a specific part of a book.

    Only blank pages

    Not one word showed up on any page of this book. They were all blank! Also, the contents shows the book titles only, no chapters, and the search function never found any words. Very frustrating!

    Just finished Sense & Sensibilty by Jane Austen

    Now onto Pride & Prejudice! But unfortunately vacation is over, so reading may be last on my list of things to do.

    A must have for any Jane Austen fan.

    I never thought I could enjoy reading books on a screen instead of on paper but this book changed my mind. Excellent layout, good print size and of course the quality of the author's work make this an n
    excellent read.
