really liked it
Read in September, 2008

I decided to reread the letters of Jane Austen after finding myself thoroughly taken in by Becoming Jane. Afraid that I wasn't completely aware of its inaccuracies, I knew I needed a brief refresher on the life and voice of this greatest literary friend of single girls the world over.

I'm never sorry to have undertaken a rereading. Her letters remain every bit as fresh, caustic, and utterly charming as her novels, welcoming the voyeur reader with both wit and wisdom (which she herself says is the stuff of lasting letters).
