This was an interesting way to look at all things Austen. While it does contain a bio of our beloved Jane, it really follows the creation of an industry. While modestly successful when published, the author discusses the valleys experienced by Jane's work, to the steadily rising climb to the peak of where Jane is today. It had flashes of humor and is interesting to anyone who likes Ms. Austen's work. The narrator of the audio version is excellent - has just the right way of expressing the tone of the work.
