Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Jane Austen's delightful, carefully wrought novels of manners remain surprisingly relevant, nearly 200 years after they were first published. Her novels, including Pride and Prejudice and Emma, are those rare books that offer us a glimpse at the mores of a specific period while addressing the complexities of love, honour and responsibility that still intrigue us today.

I bought this book as soon as I saw it. It is beautiful. The page edges are painted gold. There is an attached gold ribbon. Unlike most hardcover books, the book was not glued to the center of the hardcover backing/binding. The book is held in place by the first and last page of the book. After 1.5 weeks of on and off reading, the book tore from the hardcover. Such a disappointment... The content is of course fantastic.

I am grateful to have this collective edition, which I later found at my local B&N for a little less than I paid for it on this site. However, it is beautifully bound and contains seven of Austen's novels, including the "big six." The only complaints I have are: 1) Re. the book itself--the print is a bit smaller than my poor middle-aged eyes are comfortable with. I definitely need reading glasses with this one. 2) The seller wrapped this relatively weighty and lovely book VERY POORLY...a book of this quality should be properly wrapped and prevented from moving and bumping around during shipping...as a result, one edge of the front cover is slightly bent (no big deal, it's just the principle of the matter) and upon opening, the book is slightly coming apart from its binding (fixable and not new to B&N special edition books). From this Amazon seller, the book came wrapped in an over-sized, thinly bubble-lined envelope. Don't recommend sending any books, much less any precious items of literature in this manner. Otherwise, I wish there were other/more publishers out there who would put together, in beautiful binding, classic authors' collective works, and make it affordable to the public. B&N currently has this market cornered.

The print is extremely small but the cover and bookmark are very nice. However, after reading the first novel I noticed it was coming apart inside the front cover where it is not bound well. I had read other reviews prior to purchasing and when I started reading it I was very careful in holding the book so no stress would be put on the spine yet it still loosened. Overall I'm pleased with the book but it certainly could have been bound better.

I love this book it gives the pleasure of being able to go back and revisit whichever novel i feel like rereading at the moment. It is very beautiful and very well made. The letters are a bit smaller than i would like but not too bad. I bought this on another popular auction site brand new for a very good price and it was packaged amazingly thus its condition when arrived was perfect.

The only con that i can see to this book is how heavy it is. It weighs about 4 pounds and its difficult to find a position in which it is comfortable to read. Ultimately some body part ends up in pain (neck,wrists,back). I am young so i thought id be able to handle it but no i can read about one hour intervals at a time. Also because of its size its not very practical to carry around to read in a spare moment.

I would definately recommend this book because i think its benefits definately out weigh everything else. Its affordable has stunning presentation and is from a wonderful author.

This book set is amazing. It's absolutely gorgeous. Lovely gold painted edges and a cute little ribbon. The cover is very beautiful too.

My only issue is the fact that because of all that gold paint, the pages stick together! Which is really frustrating when turning the pages, having to unstick them. Also, the book seems to be starting to fall apart from the front page. Which really disappointed me. I guess I won't have much of a read of this before it starts falling apart soon.

Just to be clear since some reviews have been tacked on to the wrong edition (aka same book, wrong edition), before...this is concerning the "Barnes and Noble Leatherbound Classics" Edition.
I got this as a Christmas gift, and from the outset, the presentation truly excited me. I love how they struck such a balance between the ornate and the simple with the floral designs. It is very inviting and enticing...if any person has a hard time reading, surely a book this beautiful will spark enough curiosity and motivation.

I won't bother with discussing plot in-depth considering that this is a collection of works rather than a single piece (besides, I've only finished "Emma" and am currently reading through "Mansfield Park"). But As I complete each tale, I'll be sure to leave a little comment/note about what drew me or not.

This edition's features:
This volume is a leatherbound, hardcover edition. It runs at 1221 pages. The paper used is thin, but it is a smooth professional-grade of paper with gold painted edges. It consists of 6 novels ("Sense and Sensibility", "Pride and Prejudice", "Mansfield Park", "Emma", "Northanger Abbey", and "Persuasion") by Jane Austen and one short fiction ("Lady Susan"...one of her earliest works and one that defined her narrative voice). Besides Jane Austen's actual works, there is also an introduction written by Sarah S. G. Frantz, and a very mini biography about Jane Austen in the back of the book.

Some customers have made note of the book being fragile or becoming unbound. From my experience, though, this book has held up quite well...but I will update this review if something should happen.
