    The World of Jane Austen Comment

    1. Love the way this one made me feel immersed in Jane s world without drowning me in tediousness There are maps, modern day pictures of the homes and places Jane has been, pictures of her family and others of her acquaintance, organized chapters that zero in on certain aspects of her life and legacy The bibliography is impressive too in offering avenues of further research.The pages are glossed and the photos and illustrations are sharp Nice quick reference or lazy day perusal addition to an Auste [...]




    2. What do I sayg Jane Austen is one of my favorite authors, and to get a glimpse into her world was a very to use her own words highly agreeable experience The book made me start reading Northanger Abbey.


    3. This was a useful book in that it traces the movements of Jane Austen throughout her life If you know Austen, you know how greatly her living situation and environs impacted her not just in terms of what she wrote, but how and when she wrote Interesting stuff I feel like I know Jane better from reading this book.The author makes good use of excerpts from Austen s letters and incorporates passages from her works to show the tremendous impression landscape made on our gal And this is no small thin [...]


    4. I enjoy reading around the subject of Jane Austen s life and times This book makes it easier to visualize where she lived and what her life was like I also dip into the Stephanie Barron series, which spotlights places Jane lived and visited and this book was cited by Barron as one of her sources When I win the lotto, I ll take the Jane Austen tour of England What to say except that this book was written for readers like me who want to learn of the context of this period of British history.


    5. Lots of pictures of houses and estates that Jane Austen was familiar with in her lifetime It is speculated that many of them were the inspirations for the houses described in her novels Very interesting.


    6. To tell the truth, I never did finish this book I couldn t The Nicholson family has always provided a solid readbut this one never was able to draw me in and hold my attention I expect that I will try again It may just not be the right time.
