The Complete Works

4.67 of 5 stars 4.67  ·  rating details  ·  522 ratings  ·  20 reviews

Jane Austen is perhaps the best loved of all English novelists. Her knowledge of human nature is remarkable, and her awareness of the importance of class, money and appearances makes her a peculiarly modern author. She addresses the politics of dating, courtship and mating with an incisive intelligence that both foreshadows and outstrips romantic novels of today.

This book, The Complete Works of Jane Austen, is not to be confused with The Newly Discovered, Unfinished, & Finished Complete Works of Jane Austen. The first, which I have completed, contains only the larger, more popular novels that Austen is known for, while the other contains those novels along with many smaller obscure novels, novellas, poems, and letters. I have finished the major books, and am now working my way through the smaller ones.

As for my opinion on Austen:

This may not be a "mans" book, but it is a good read. There was a little too much chattiness for my liking at times, but the story resonates with me as it resembles (fondly) my courtship with my wife. I see myself in Mr. Darcy (prideful and not outgoing), and something of my wife in Lizzy (opinionated and strong (and strong headed).
I have long been a huge fan of all the movies they make based on Jane Austen's books but I never read all the books until not. Reading them all in one go was a bit of a struggle but I took breaks between books and I'm glad to say that I am no longer a Jane Austen POSER!

Can't figure this out.

download? to where?
I would rather drive to the local bookstore. It would be quicker
Although I was finish, required more words.
I have read all of Jane Austen's novels individually but bought this complete works from some bargain shop or other years ago so that I could re-read them. Unfortunately the print is so small and the book so thick to hold that I usually give up and read something else. The five stars are because of the novels and not because of this edition
Jane Austen is one of my favorite authors and this compilation includes not only her published works but also letters and lesser known works. It is a wonderful find. I would recommend this to anyone interested in Austen's work.

amazing book. amzing work from a woman that never knew love in her life. it is very realistic and that's why i love about it. the end is faor for the charecters unlike alot of novels.
Jane Austen is one of my favourite romance authors. My favourite book would be Pride and Prejudice, as the story is full of twists and turns to make the plot interesting.
Love Jane Austen. Her stories will never be out of fashion. They're true classics... The women in her stories always end up happy; they always get their man. :)
