Austen-tastic!, 27 Oct 2010
When I first bought this book I thought I would dip in and out of it, but I ended up reading it cover to cover. It offers an excellent introduction to the world of Austen - her life, books and tv/film adaptations and provides more unusual and interesting facts for those more familiar with her work. The Pocket Bible manages to avoid being patronising or gimmicky like a lot of current books based on Austen and has enhanced my enjoyment of my favourite novels. It has solved many Christmas present problems for me this year, thank you!
