Ce livre est beau, instructif, ludique, pour faire bref, indispensable. Il vous présente Jane Austen en quatre chapitres principaux : sa vie, son monde, son oeuvre, son héritage et ce, à l'aide de diverses infographies et illustrations. L'objet en lui-même est soigné jusque dans les moindres détails et il suffit de soulever la couverture pour s'en rendre compte.

Malgré ces évidentes qualités, le contenu aurait pu ne pas être à la hauteur. D'ailleurs, ce n'est pas vraiment une biographie, il y a,

Cela fait un moment que j'ai commencé à acheter et lire les œuvres de Jane Austen - il m'en manque encore quelques-uns mais je les aurai tous :) . J'ai toujours trouvé qu'elle savaient très bien dépeindre la culture de l'époque, la vie des gens dans la capitale ou à la campagne. Les relations entre voisins...

A great introduction to Jane and her world through infographics. The colour scheme and small fonts make for some difficulty in reading but the content is varied explaining the context and comparing parts of her life to her contemporaries. Great stuff in quick, easy bites. This format will appeal to browsers.

I bought this while I was in Edinburgh with Kelly earlier this year – because I can never resist anything Austen-related! This book is part of a series of biographies that explores "great lives in graphic form." It summarizes the life and work of the subject and uses infographics to convey the information. You can look inside here. I really enjoyed the visual aspect, which also made it a quick read. It didn't contain anything particularly new, but it was still fun to flip through. I'd b

This was great. It makes good short-attention-span reading, and the pages are visually appealing. I'm going to leave it lying around to see if the kids will read it.
