I have to say that this is a great all rounder book for anyone who has any interest in Austen, her life and her works, yet it lacked any real indepth analysis of them.
It provides an overview of all her writings, and sets them in the historical context, but this is not a book to recommend a student studying Austen, hoping for some choice quotes. There is no particualr detail, and no critical analysis of any works or the social setting of her novels.
Instead, it is an enjoyable, easy read which Austen fans will enjoy.

Really enjoyed this book setting the works of Jane Austen in context and very well illustrated. Can recommend it to all Jane Austen fans.
