Formatted very nicely. The electronic version controls work very well. Have found no glitches. Which are very nice. It also is a complete collection of Austen's works. All for very cheap! Really very happy with this purchase. Worth every penny and more. I bought this book at special price from here:

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:

After checking out the other Kindle book collections that feature the writings of Jane Austen, I decided on this one because of three important things: 1. the cover grabbed me (really pretty and befitting of the era), 2. the layout was GREAT compared to the other Kindle versions I saw, where paragraphs were spaced weird and jagged on the right edge in some cases (or available illustrations were too small to even consider). The layout in this version makes for easy, comfortable reading, and the l ...more

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).

Northhampton Abbey
This is a love novel, written in third person by Jane Austen and finished in 1803 but not published for several years. It is about a young lady Catherine Morland who takes leave of her parents and siblings to vacation with a neighboring couple, the Allens, in Bath an area recommended for Mr. Allen's health. Catherine is an inquisitive, adventurous, and imaginative girl who is entering young adulthood and eager to experience the opportunities which would be available to her in a

All of her works are worth the read, thorough study, and so rich in wonderful characters, history, and self-discovery. Her protagonists have been some of the most interesting, clever, and beloved characters.

Favorites in order:

1. By far - PERSUASION. Anne Elliot is almost too good a character. First and last daughter of our's named mostly for her.
2. Pride and Prejudice
3. Emma
4. Sense and Sensibility
5. Northanger Abbey
6. Mansfield Park

Ughh.. so many words to say so little. I just can not appreciate Jane Austin stories. I have tried several times and could not get through even one. I gave up. I hardly ever give up. That is how much i cannot appreciate Jane Austin.

Sense and Sensibility


This one gives the clash of values characteristic of the writer, with wealth and temptation and opportunity versus rectitude and character and propriety as well as prudence playing the major part. How love itself must give way to rectitude and character is the chief theme, with the obvious lesson that giving way to temptation for now might close the door to happiness, love and future in fact.

I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every book from Jane Austen. They always feel like my best friend sharing the juiciest gossip with me, and I always feel very attached to the characters.

People think, even in this technologically advanced day and age, that is impossible for anyone, especially the average person, to travel back in time to a previous point in history. However, if a reader picks up a copy of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, they will be immediately transferred to early 19th century England by the end of the first chapter. Of course, no matter how mu

It is hard for me to sit and read this book because the typeset is so small...seems to be taking forever to read it. It also doesn't help that I keep having bits of the movie(s) flash in my mind as I read it and almost like the movies much better than the books.

I've decided to skip Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice and come back to them later. The others I have not seen a movie about it hundreds of times, so maybe that will help me move through it quicker...the typeset is still very

So far, I'm enjoying this edition. I've completed Sense and Sensibility, and it was quite a good read. But I didn't expect less of Austen.

My only issue, and the reason I'm not giving it a higher rating, is that the Kindle edition I'm reading has many many typos. On the one hand, what do you expect for $0.99? On the other hand, it's very distracting, and occasionally whole portions of sentences are lost. I'd recommend splurging on a better edition if you can, but this is otherwise a fine way to g

i love everything that jane austen has ever written, and that is the absolute truth. her lead characters are strong, self-aware, passionate and loving, but still affected by the pettiness, selfishness, and social pressure that they are surrounded by. The exquisite detail in each of her novels transports you to a different time and place, and lets you believe that you are either an innocent onlooker or close family friend throughout the stories. These are stories that i go back to again and again ...more

Fanny Price is an annoying git but the genius of Ms. Austen is I kept reading anyway for the wonderful style and lovely prose. All of these works were good but Northanger Abbey is hilarious. I am not steeped in the mores and conventions of her day but you don't have to be to know a genre slam when you you read it. To write about your era and still be hilarious hundreds of years later is a remarkable feat.

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

First Time Reader

This was my first reading exposure to Jane Austen, and I very much enjoyed it overall. There were only a few that I got bogged down in the wording as some of the dialogue seemed to be never-ending at times. I love her sense of humor and sometimes actually laughed aloud while reading.

I purchased this as a present for my wife because we both enjoyed the BBC production of Pride and Prejudice. She loves how the writer portrays her characters and the words she chooses in her writing. Since the stories were written over 100 years ago, she enjoys the feature which allows her to quickly look up the correct meaning of a word that may not find much use in today's writings.

Jane Austen was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature, her realism and biting social commentary cementing her historical importance among scholars and critics.

Austen lived her entire life as part of a close-knit family located on the lower fringes of the English landed gentry

“She had never been staying there before, without being struck by it, or without wishing that other Elliots could have her advantage in seeing how unknown, or unconsidered there, were the affairs which at Kellynch Hall were treated as of such general publicity and pervading interest; yet, with all this experience, she believed she must now submit to feel that another lesson, in the art of knowing our own nothingness beyond our own circle, was become necessary for her; for certainly, coming as she did, with a heart full of the subject which had been completely occupying both houses in Kellynch for many weeks, she had expected rather more curiosity and sympathy than she found in the separate but very similar remark of Mr and Mrs Musgrove: “So, Miss Anne, Sir Walter and your sister are gone; and what part of Bath do you think they will settle in?” and this, without much waiting for an answer; or in the young ladies’ addition of, “I hope we shall be in Bath in the winter; but remember, papa, if we do go, we must be in a good situation: none of your Queen Squares for us!” or in the anxious supplement from Mary, of—“Upon my word, I shall be pretty well off, when you are all gone away to be happy at Bath!” 1 likes
“A woman of seven-and-twenty,” said Marianne, after pausing a moment, “can never hope to feel or inspire affection again, and if her home be uncomfortable, or her fortune small, I can suppose that she might bring herself to submit to the offices of a nurse, for the sake of the provision and security of a wife.” 1 likes
