I really enjoyed this book. It was about half and half for things I knew already and didn't. A few of her conclusions I disagreed with (but mostly not), and some aspects I wished she would talk about for longer, but mostly it was a really great read. More than anything, it just made me want to reread and reexamine her books--again. It especially maid me want to look more in depth into her biography. It's incredibly easy to read and entertaining and goes very quickly. It's definitely a great book and perfect for an introduction to Jane Austen's life.

Alison Cope I found the detailed information connecting her life to the plots and characters to be very satisfying.
