Overview

Elegant, sophisticated, and full of humor and romance, the novels of Jane Austen have been favorites of readers around the world for more than two centuries. Although set at the turn of the nineteenth century, in the England that she herself knew, Austen’s characters espouse values and sentiments that still speak to modern sensibilities. No author has captured so vividly the affairs of hearts in conflict with class and social convention.This volume features four of Jane Austen’s best-loved works:

  • Sense and Sensibility. The Dashwood sisters—Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret— follow their hearts and heads in varying degrees as they seek suitors appropriate for their affections.

  • Pride and Prejudice. When obstinate Elizabeth Bennet clashes with the seemingly arrogant Fitzwilliam Darcy, sparks fly and eventually ignite what each must come to accept is the love of a perfectly matched couple.

  • Emma. Confident and self-assured, willful Emma Woodhouse commits a series of social blunders that teach her how badly she misunderstands
    her society and her own romantic yearnings.

  • Persuasion. Seven years earlier Anne Elliot broke off her engagement to the man she loved. When the opportunity arises for her to renew their romance, will she overcome the social strictures that made her earlier match seem ill-conceived?

    All The Best In One Lovely Hardcover Edition!!

    I've read all of Jane Austen's novels several times through - my favorite being Pride and Prejudice which was what got me started back in middle school. They are all good and worth reading. Sometimes, you read a good book by an author, and when you try reading another one of their works, they disappoint you. That's not the case with JA. While all her books have similarities (novel of manners, marriage issue, the importance of character, etc.), the plots and characters are about as different as can be. Each heroine is unique, yet you can appreciate and like all of them. It's also a reasonable price and comes with a good, though short, introduction. For a longer more detailed introduction and end notes, go to the B&N Classics and buy them individually.

    disappointing and incomplete

    The book is poorly laid out, not even a page break between the end of one novel and the beginning of the next. The Table of contents is useless and unwieldy, and hundreds of pages are missing, including one whole novel. (Persuasion). It's a disgrace how many of these books have been slapped together without care for whether or not they're readable or worth any amount of money no matter how small.

    Charming!

    Wonderful books, and nice to have them all in one volume. I just wish Jane Austin had been able to write more stories.

    Austen Collection Not recommended

    Although all Ausen's books are in this collection, it is difficult to access them. The advertisement says that the Table of Contents is interactive, but it is difficult to make it work. I'm reduced to trying to set 'bookmarks' at the beginning of each book.

    If I knew it was this hard, I would not have bought it, even for 2.99.

    An excellent compendium of all things Austen

    If you want, you can hunt down the texts of all of Austen's books. But this Complete Collection is a nice and easy way to get at all of Jane Austen's novels in one package. You can lend this title to your friends as well. The table of contents makes it easy to jump to the various titles within, and you'll be digging Austen's wit in no time.

    Written in Old English?

    This copy of the Jane Austen stories is UNABRIDGED and I could not understand the context very well. It is written in Old English or something. I went back to get a edited version, and it has been a lot better!. I do not recommend this edition of the stories.

    Nice Collection

    I bought this set after reading First Impressions by Charlie Lovett, a mystery involving Jane Austen's writing. I have not finished this entire collection, but find the stories to be an interesting look at life in Jane Austen's society. It is also interesting to me to see the similarities between her society and those of the American south in the 1800s. I think Scarlett O'Hara would fit right in! I am nearly finished reading Emma and look forward to reading Alexander McCall Smith's Emma: A Modern Retelling. One note of warning: I have found some errors in my Nook version; it will sometimes read Be when He makes sense, for instance.
