About the Author

One of England s most beloved authors, Jane Austen wrote such classic novels as Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, and Northanger Abbey. Published anonymously during her life, Austen s work was renowned for its realism, humour, and commentary on English social rites and society at the time. Austen s writing was supported by her family, particularly by her brother, Henry, and sister, Cassandra, who is believed to have destroyed, at Austen s request, her personal correspondence after Austen s death in 1817. Austen s authorship was revealed by her nephew in A Memoir of Jane Austen, published in 1869, and the literary value of her work has since been recognized by scholars around the world.

Having just read (or reread) Jane Austen's six finished novels in the the last two weeks, I thought I might try ranking them in order of my preference. A couple of words of explanation. The star rankings are only in relation to the six books as they relate to each other; I am not ranking them against literature in general. Also, I am not trying to convince anyone else, that they should view the books in the same way. I realize that everyone has their preferences, and I have no wish to create uncivil controversy or to say that my opinion is the only one that counts. On the other hand I would welcome anyone else's opinion on how they would rank the novels, and would only ask for some explanation as to why they have made their choices. These are not long or particulary deep critiques; my main purpose is to express an appreciation for the wonderful legacy Jane Austen has given us.

Here goes: Pride and Prejudice--5 stars. Why? In two words Elizabeth Bennet. Austen herself worried that P and P might be just a little too bright, that it might not have enough gravitas. There may be some truth in that, but Elizabeth's personality carries all before it. She is one of the most delightful fictional persons ever created, and that she isn't perfect in either beauty or character only adds to her charm. I don't know if she is an alter ego to Austen herself, but there is so much empathy in the portrayal, I can't help thinking there is some truth there. Darcy is another reason for the ranking. When one thinks of the other heroes that Austen created, he is the only one that comes close to being a match for someone like Elizabeth. Any of the other male characters Austen portrayed would have come up woefully short.

I won't go into the quality of Jane Austen's books, I suspect if you are reading this, you are well familiar with Miss Austen's writing. You have probably long decided what the quality of Charlotte and Mr Collins's life would be, what change in Emma's character came about by the Box Hill picnic, and whether Fanny is the best or worst Austen heroine.

Instead, I will focus on the quality of this kindle edition, I have had a very mixed experience with free and almost free kindle books. Some are good, some are ok, and some are frankly awful. When I saw this edition of all Austen's major works and mot of the minor ones for a buck, I was a little concerned. How good could it be? I am a great Austen lover and would be disappointed if it turned out to be as bad as some I have bought. But I figured, how wrong can I go for 99 cents?

I am happy to report that this edition is a very high quality. I have now re-read all of Pride and Prejudice and half of Emma, and I can say that I have found no major typos or other errors. The book is rather plain, being simply laid out without drawings - though the front cover of Miss Austen is very nice. If you are looking for beautiful appointments, choose another edition. But if you are looking for the text, not somebody's interpretation in drawings, and want it in an easy to read, eminently affordable form, this is your book. I have a complete boxed, printed set of Miss Austen's novels - I have even read Lady Susan from it - but I am happy to have this easily transported, quality edition on my iPad. Buy it, you won't regret it!

I loved this ebook. Not only did it contain all six of Jane Austen's published novels, but a number of lesser-known and unfinished works as well. It's interesting to read her early writing and compare it to her later, published works.

It's nice to have ALL of Jane Austen's works, but like most electronic books I've read, the editing is very sloppy. Though there are some spelling and capitalization quirks, I suspect they are the author's originals. However, there are many points where just the wrong word is written. Also, how hard is it to get a table of contents straight? The Watsons and Sanditon are listed as minor works; Lady Susan is listed as unfinished. The reverse is true. I have not read the entire collection, so there may well be more slipshod points.
Of course, Jane Austen's works themselves are great fun to read. Having only read her major works, it's nice to read her early, minor, and unfinished works. This review's rating is for the quality of the e-book, not of Austen's work.

Jane Austen is my favorite author. I reread her books at least once a year, as sadly, she only wrote 7 complete novels. This brings me to my small note...

"Lady Susan" is a complete novel, not an unfinished novel, as stated in the eBook description. It is a short, but extremely funny, story.

As her number of completed novels is rather small, I am saddened to say, "The Watsons" and "Sanditon" are the unfinished ones. They are promising tidbits I believe I would have enjoyed...

This eBook appears to have many good reviews for formatting and the price is excellent!

I bought "Jane Austen: the Complete Collection" from Bedford Park Books a few years ago for (I think) $1.99. It is also well-formatted and includes the original illustrations from her originally published works. You may download most of her work for free, but "Sense and Sensibility" was not included in the free eBooks. It alone cost varying rates, starting at $3.00, so I would recommend this one or the one I bought. This one was not available when I first searched for Jane Austen in Kindle books.
