A book I quite enjoyed although I expect that to really like it you have to be an Austenite, a fan of science fantasy or magical realism and light-hearted deconstruction.

In this book, Jane Austen has assumed the role of "Dear Abby". She answers modern ladies questions on life and love. I really enjoyed it at first; but then all the letters were getting old by the end. The only thing that kept me reading was the satirical humor, just like Miss Austen would have written in her own novels.
