it was ok

This was a page-turner, thanks only to Jane Austen's wonderful storylines.

I would not read this book again, because there was virtually no originality in it. I would also be offended, if I were Jane, at the idea that I'd lifted every one of my stories' events and characters and dialogues directly from happenings in my life.

It might have been more of a treat if there were any sort of suspense as to who each character in her life would turn out to resemble in her books, but there was no subtleties at all. Each character that comes in contact with Jane is obviously linked to a character in her novels the minute they open their mouth.
