Jane Austen Book Club Reviews
#1046 in Books


In California’s central valley, five women and one man join to discuss Jane Austen’s novels. Over the six months they get together, marriages are tested, affairs begin,
unsuitable arrangements become suitable, and love happens. With her eye for the frailties of human behavior and her ear for the absurdities of social intercourse, Karen Joy
Fowler has never been wittier nor her characters more appealing. The result is a delicious dissection of modern relationships.

Dedicated Austenites will delight in unearthing the echoes of Austen that run through the novel, but most readers will simply enjoy the vision and voice that, despite two centuries of separation, unite two great writers of brilliant social comedy.

    6 months, 6 main characters, 6 Jane Austen books. Each character is living part of the books that Jane Austen wrote. Witty, heartwarming, and real.
    I loved this novel I just could not put it down, and if you have never read anything by Jane Austen this book is a beautiful introduction to her works.
