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!
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.Read more ›
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.
"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.

I am on Love and Friendship and the spelling is atrocious. Whoever posted this work without correcting errors should be ashamed. What a way to RUIN Austen's works.Published 1 month ago by kaykscott

I have not finished all the stories. Of course Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility are very similar. I will have to wait to see about the other stories.Published 2 months ago by Ruth Welborn
