I enojoyed reading this book immensely. As a total Jane-ite, I already felt like I knew her through her novels, but this book brought her to life in previously unimaginable ways. A must-read for true Austen fans!

I can't get enough information on the life of Jane Austen, there's so little out there. This book illuminates her personality through the eyes of her family, although of course they want to portray her in the best light possible. Too bad Cassandra burned so many of her letters.

I found this book very interesting. I fell in love with Pride and Prejudice and became very interested in learning more about Jane Austen and her life. It was informative.

The beginning of the book was a bit confusing and seemed to ramble, but once you get into the actual letters and the explanations of the letters that Jane wrote it is as if you are able to have a glimpse into her life and her interests, what gave her joy and pain. I really enjoyed it

I loved this. I recently completed a Jane Austen course and this was a great after effect, and especially for free.

This book is a good place to start with Jane Austen's letters, although it's pretty clear that not all of them are included, and that they have been edited significantly. So, not a scholar's source, and to some extent not a great source if what you want to hear is her "voice," which is the reason I purchased it. So, giving it only 4 stars. But it's very accessible and quite interesting. Recommended.

This quasi biography is very interesting and sheds light on the society she lived in and wrote about. I love her books.

I love these novels by Jane Austin. I love everything about the period, furniture, language decorum and manners. I got they all. Love them all and now I am watching on eBay to try to purchase hard cover, vintage volumes for my book case.

More About the Author

Though the domain of Jane Austen's novels was as circumscribed as her life, her caustic wit and keen observation made her the equal of the greatest novelists in any language. Born the seventh child of the rector of Steventon, Hampshire, on December 16, 1775, she was educated mainly at home. At an early age she began writing sketches and satires of popular novels for her family's entertainment. As a clergyman's daughter from a well-connected family, she had an ample opportunity to study the habits of the middle class, the gentry, and the aristocracy. At twenty-one, she began a novel called "The First Impressions" an early version of Pride and Prejudice. In 1801, on her father's retirement, the family moved to the fashionable resort of Bath. Two years later she sold the first version of Northanger Abby to a London publisher, but the first of her novels to appear was Sense and Sensibility, published at her own expense in 1811. It was followed by Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814), and Emma (1815). After her father died in 1805, the family first moved to Southampton then to Chawton Cottage in Hampshire. Despite this relative retirement, Jane Austen was still in touch with a wider world, mainly through her brothers; one had become a very rich country gentleman, another a London banker, and two were naval officers. Though her many novels were published anonymously, she had many early and devoted readers, among them the Prince Regent and Sir Walter Scott. In 1816, in declining health, Austen wrote Persuasion and revised Northanger Abby, Her last work, Sandition, was left unfinished at her death on July 18, 1817. She was buried in Winchester Cathedral. Austen's identity as an author was announced to the world posthumously by her brother Henry, who supervised the publication of Northanger Abby and Persuasion in 1818.
