Listener Opinions

    " I've read many of Austen's letters and loved them, and while I intend to finish this edition, there's quite a lot to get through for one big chunk of reading. Will have to read in smaller pieces. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 8/22/2010

    " The other part of Jane Austen -- all those letters she wrote. It's a pity that her sister Cassandra destroyed many of them, but enough of them were save. One of the top scholars about Jane Austen has done the editing here. The Folio Society edition is a gorgeous one as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 4/16/2009

    " An intriguing author and even more intriguing person. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 1/22/2009

    " yep, I liked it. I can't remember the particulars but I do remember that, :) "

    " My daughter says this collection is well worth reading so I will. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather the Hillbilly Banjo Queen | 4/17/2008

    " This was a hard read. It was tiring to keep my finger in the back of the book so I could reference the notes every five words or so. Without the notes, you have no idea what she is talking about. It would be nice to have an annotated type book so you wouldn't have to flip back and forth so much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 4/16/2008

    " Her wit and humor resonate on every page—find out just how delightful Jane would be to sit next to at a dinner party, and how much more clever her catty observations would be than your own. Exceptionally footnoted by scholar (and Austen devotee) Deidre Le Faye. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 4/15/2008

    " this was an incredible insight into Jane Austen's life and the life of those of that period. I find it amazing the letters have survived and am so thankful they have. I started it while reading another good book then couldn't put it down! A must for Jane Austen fans. "

    " A Must-have for all Jane Austen lovers! "

About the Author
Author Jane Austen

Jane Austen (1775–1817) is considered by many scholars to be the first great woman novelist. Born in Steventon, England, she later moved to Bath and began to write for her own and her family’s amusement. Her novels, set in her own English countryside, depict the daily lives of provincial middle-class families with wry observation, a delicate irony, and a good-humored wit.
