First of all, the cover of the book has Keira Knightley on it which is not very much appreciated. This aside, the book is totally worth the price. The only disadvantage in my opinion is that obviously it is a very thick book and thus not very confortable to be hold while you read it. But Jane Austen always offers great reading pleasure, so I suppose this disadvantage is not really a big one...

Beloved classics

Jane Austen was one of the few women of her time to write about life in early 19th-century England. She was the second daughter of a country parson, and her numerous brothers introduced her to the worlds of banking, gentlemen farmers, and naval officers. Wordier than today's popular novels, Austen is subtle and sparkling in her incisive illustration of her own social order. I find her characters as amusing as Dickens', but rather more shaded than the army of people he gives us. Though Austen writes about a society whose rules may be unfamiliar to us, her characters' emotions shine through clearly and resonate with our present society. My copy stands in plain view for easy reference, and I have read each of her novels many times. Reading Austen will also boost your vocabulary!
