      Okay, hands down, Jane Austen is a genius! Who, on this earth and at the tender age of 21, could write a book as brilliant as Pride and Prejudice? I don’t think I know many people – let alone 21 year olds – who have such a deep understanding of the inner workings of human nature and character and who are then able to portray that understanding in to words on paper so beautifully and perfectly like Jane Austen did in her books – especially Pride and Prejudice. But we certainly cannot forg [...]

      Attraverso i suoi romanzi, la Austen ci parla dell'aristocrazia inglese di inizio '800, una realtà decisamente lontana, e non solo in ottica temporale, dalla nostra. E non è difficile scorgervi una punta di ironia, soprattutto nel modo, quasi "esagerato", di descrivere il trasporto emotivo dei personaggi nelle varie relazioni amorose e non.Ragione e Sentimento ****Orgoglio e Pregiudizio ****Mansfield Park ***Emma*** all'inizio ammetto che non mi ha preso molto, ma poi è andato solo a migliora [...]

      I used to share Mark Twain's sentiments Mark Twain was not an admirer of Jane Austen’s work as he once declared: “I often want to criticize Jane Austen, but her books madden me so that I can't conceal my frenzy from the reader; and therefore I have to stop every time I begin. Every time I read “Pride and Prejudice” I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone.” My first introduction to Austen’s famous romances was “Pride and Prejudice”. Like Mark Twain, [...]

      What hasn't been said about Jane Austen? Not only is she arguably the greatest female writer of all time, she is also arguably one of the greatest writers of all time. She is in the same status as Shakespeare and Dickens. Chances are you've heard her name if you are a reader. I still think she is important to English literature as well as the language.I was never really fond of Austen before reading her books. For the longest time I thought she was either this snooty bitchy writer or she was chi [...]

    6. Anna Kristina says:

      Pride and Prejudice (five stars)Persuasion (three stars)I enjoyed this one, perhaps because it wasn't quite as obvious how everything would play out (not the ending, but how it would get there). enjoyable!Emma (four stars)I really enjoyed this I think I can connect to Emma the best out of all the Jane Austen heroines I've met so far, at least as far as personality, not necessarily matchmaking. And can understand things blowing up in your face and regretting decisions seriously, who can't? Anyway [...]

    7. Leesa says:

      My favorite is Pride and Prejudice. It makes me smile. Great characters and well developed story line. A romance that won't make you blush.

    10. Robert says:

      Sense and Sensibility **This to me feels like a proto-Pride and Prejudice, showing flashes of the genius for sly wit and sardonic character observations that P&P is renowned for but not the same skill with plot and pacing and a surprisingly anaemic set of romantic interests for the young sisters. It reminds me of reading early Shakespeare; it shows promise of what is to come later but on its own it doesn't justify the author's reputation.Pride and Prejudice ****/review/showMansfield Park **T [...]

    11. Nick Black says:

      A fluency with Jane Austen is a practical necessity for dating smart girls, and hey! she's hilarious to boot. Admittedly, once you've readPride and Prejudice you've pretty much read them all, exceptMansfield Park which is just godawful and ought have been expurgated. Be prepared for a lot of lines like this, which are laugh-out-loud funny upon first reading, but become progressively less funny each time you encounter them:Mary wished to say something very sensible, but knew not how.Anyway, as me [...]

      When I saw this beautiful edition in a bargain section in a bookstore, I just couldn't control myself so I bought it. Now, I'm on a mission to read all of these 7 novels in a year, starting from today, July 2015.

    13. Jeanette says:

      Making my way through all seven Jane austen novels. So far, Pride and Prejudice is still my favorite.

      Jane Austen, ovvero il RomanzoPartiamo dall'edizione: oltre ad avere l'indubbio vantaggio di essere decisamente economica (14 euro per sei romanzi non è male), si presenta anche bene: copertina rigida, un interessante (per quanto breve) saggio introduttivo e addirittura una filmografia e un elenco dei siti Web dedicati alla Austen e alla sue opere. Per quanto riguarda le traduzioni, un paio (quelle di Emma e di Persuasione, per essere precisi) mi hanno dato l'impressione di perdersi in certi pa [...]

    16. Erin says:

      My goal for the summer was to re-read Jane Austen's novels in their entirety. And I'm happy to say, I'm finished. It's been some time since I sat down to read any of her novels. I've probably watched the movies more than I've actually sat down to read them. I know many people do an annual reading of her works. I'm not sure I could do that - but would instead place them into the "read these books at different times of your life" category. It always amazes me how these novels still resonate today. [...]

    17. Kacey says:

      Of course, my favorite Jane Austen novel is Pride and Prejudice. There are just so many aspects to this novel that I love, and the fact that both main characters are so seemingly different, but end up being so similar is genius. I love how this book is a more "proper" version of a timeless tale of love and misunderstanding.What I enjoyed even more was to find that Jane Austen wrote many of her characters in a similar way. Most of her main female characters are strong willed and sure of themselve [...]

    18. Selah Pike says:

      There are no separate entries for the individual books in this collection, but I have no hesitation in given by the collection 5 stars after re-reading Persuasion. Captain Wentworth and Anne Elliot are amazing characters! The illustrations in this collection are breathtaking. Northanger Abbey was delightful as well! Henry and Catherine are hilarious!

    19. Danica says:

      I am a true Jane Austen fan. I love reading these stories over and over. Truly classic romances for every woman to read and love.

    20. Natalie says:

      Austen is just a great writer that everyone should read.

    21. Jamie says:

      I've spent a semester getting through this massive volume (for a class, I should say), and I figure I'll do mini-reviews for each novel rather than anything similarly massive. So let's give it a whirl.Sense and Sensibility: This is actually the only Austen novel I've read on multiple occasions, so I have a bit more familiarity with it than any of the other five. This is, in my humble opinion, a fairly dark novel for Austen. Marianne's melodrama is of course frequently mocked, but Elinor's resign [...]

    22. Belinda Rule says:

      New impressions of P&P upon rereading while Old: Mr Bennet is a tool! The leads are tiny babies! I hope Darcy's conversation skills improve in private! <3 Now to rewatch the Only Adaptation Of Importance.

      Stolz und Vorurteilsfrei lesenIch hatte einem Freund „Wuthering Heights“, auf Deutsch Sturmhöhen, von Emily Bronte ausgeliehen. In der kleinen Pause wurde mir mein Hab wieder zurückgegeben und zufällig sah es unsere junge Referendarin im Fach Deutsch. Sie schaute sich das Buch an und fragte mich ungläubig, ob ich das lesen will. Sie dachte ich leihe mir dieses Buch aus, doch wurde dieses Missverständnis vom Freund aufgeklärt. Voller Stolz fügte ich denn noch hinzu, dass ich auch, mehr [...]

      AustenI read this complete works of Jane Austen thinking I should. I am glad I did. I enjoyed the narrative about the women of her day and I'm glad I had this on kindle to look up all the outdated words! Maybe one shouldn't try to read all of the books in sequence,but the characters were great.

    25. Myra says:

      Loving Jane Austen as I do I was thrilled when my daughter surprised me with a copy of her complete novels. If you enjoy the weight of a book in your hands, and you love Jane Austen, this is the book for you. I must admit that I skipped Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice because I had only recently re-read them. So I skipped to Mansfield Park, read straight through that, and followed with Emma, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion and Lady Susan. I loved them all, and I believe I have a new f [...]

    26. Carrie Johnson says:

      I read Pride & Predjudice. I've read it millions of times before, so of course I love it.I love everything about the tale- even the characters we are supposed to hate.Sometimes my pity for the Wickhams flip flops between Mr. Wickham and Lydia.This time I felt so sorry for Mr.Wickham to be stuck with such an insipid girl as Lydia.(Sometimes I feel sorry for Lydia that she is too stupid to realize that she will never make her husband happy short of falling into a lot of money.) I always feel a [...]

    27. Alice says:

      No me arrepiento para nada de haber comprado este libro. Le dediqué medio año de mi vida y no podría estar más satisfecha. Pasé de que me guste Jane Austen a sentirme fan de Jane Austen. Ahora me arrepiento de no haber hecho una reseña libro por libro, para anotar cosas sobre cada novela. Sin embargo, puedo decir que agregué Northanger Abbey y Persuasion a mis novelas favoritas. Creo que en estas dos Austen lleva su uso de la ironía los niveles más divertidos y agradables para mí.Jane [...]

    28. Laura the Highland Hussy says:

      I got this anthology for a class and I thought it might be easier to put this up rather than each Jane Austen novel. I really liked it, and it's portable being a normal sized paperback; just thicker. But since I love Jane Austen, this is perfect for me! I really like Sense and Sensability the best, of course, followed by Pride and Prejudice. Emma, Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey were good as well, but this is a great way to read all of her works without a large hardback anthology that is sui [...]

    29. Julie says:

      Jane Austin is one of my all time favorite authors. I have adored every single novel of hers!! Even though she is a classical author, her books are in no way stuffy or hard reads. She questions such topical themes as her titles suggest "pride and prejudice" and "sense and sensibility" with such wonderful humor and such passionate and extravagant characters. Her novels are always fun to read, hard to put down, and leave you wanting more. I'd recommend ANY Jane Austin book (though they are undoubt [...]

    30. Robyn Larson says:

      I read most of Jane's novels every year. Steer clear of the Lady Susan novel. It's actually the first "novel" that Jane wrote, but it's written as if it's two women corresponding about their trashy lives. But the other novels are swell. :) I love Sense and Sensibility,Emma, and Pride and Prejudice in that order. Mansfield Park and Persuasion are also kinda fun (although it's been a while since I've read them). :)
