Given all the material available about Jane Austen, it was good to find something rather different. The inclusion of facsimiles made it an excellent choice, as I needed it for a present for someone who is a JA expert! Added to which, the Amazon price is considerably less than the local bookshop.

Lovely book, good quality, lots of interesting information, takes me back in time to a better place, she's a really interesting woman, and I enjoyed reading all about her life. Love the cover design too, purple is my fave colour.
An exceptional and unique biography of this truly great authoress, a treasure of English writing. So fitting as it is 'her' year. One small comment - it is a non-standard size and does not fit neatly with other books. That said it is superb.
Not what I expected from Janet Todd - thought it would be more erudite/literary BUT it is very informative and great fun working through all the attachments/inserts. An Austen fan would not be disappointed.
