"How can you not love a book about Austen's favorite sisters that ends with, "circumcised!" Jane may turn over in her grave with that one, but I can whole-heartedly say I loved every moment of this book!

As you read this book you think to yourself at times, "Oh, Ms Austen would have loved that" and at other times you think, "Oh, glad she isn't around to read that bit". That is the brilliance of this book, it takes a classic and appropriates it to our modern tastes.

I think I can honestly add this title to my top ten reads. There was not one moment while reading this book that I wasn't entertained or enthralled. McCullough has taken much loved characters and flown them to a new level of appreciation."
