    The despicable Lady Susan

    With a lovely sounding title as Lady Susan, who would suspect anyone more wretched a woman and mother as she. This is the first book I have ever read that consisted of a series of letters. I think the format work very well.

    Somewhat entertaining story

    While I would never claim that Lady Susan was among my favorites of Jane Austen's works, it was somewhat entertaining. The pains and scheming that Lady Susan went through to get her daughter married to James was interesting to watch. But it was indeed comical to see Lady Susan married to James and Fredrica married to Reginald, who was meant for Lady Susan.
