3.0 out of 5 stars
A little disappointing, 9 Jan 2014
My husband bought me this for Christmas as I love Jane Austen's books. It is well-written, but I don't feel that I know much more about her now than I did at the beginning. I realise that this is largely due to the fact that most letters were destroyed etc...but I found it a frustrating read as there was quite a bit of conjecture. It does have very good 'official reviews' which is why my husband bought it, but for me, disappointing.
