Customer Review

on 27 November 2012
I found this an accessible, lively and comprehensive look at the background to Austen's novels. The illustrations support the text beautifully - it is an excellent book for dipping into a section at a time. It also functions as a reference guide to the era as it is arranged under headings like 'courtship' and 'music'. The references to the novels and to Austen's life are timely and informative - I like the occasional film and TV adaptation photos, too.
