I've read all of Jane Austen's novels several times through - my favorite being Pride and Prejudice which was what got me started back in middle school. They are all good and worth reading. Sometimes, you read a good book by an author, and when you try reading another one of their works, they disappoint you. That's not the case with JA. While all her books have similarities (novel of manners, marriage issue, the importance of character, etc.), the plots and characters are about as different as can be. Each heroine is unique, yet you can appreciate and like all of them. It's also a reasonable price and comes with a good, though short, introduction. For a longer more detailed introduction and end notes, go to the B&N Classics and buy them individually.

If you want, you can hunt down the texts of all of Austen's books. But this Complete Collection is a nice and easy way to get at all of Jane Austen's novels in one package. You can lend this title to your friends as well. The table of contents makes it easy to jump to the various titles within, and you'll be digging Austen's wit in no time.

Wonderful books, and nice to have them all in one volume. I just wish Jane Austin had been able to write more stories.

Although all Ausen's books are in this collection, it is difficult to access them. The advertisement says that the Table of Contents is interactive, but it is difficult to make it work. I'm reduced to trying to set 'bookmarks' at the beginning of each book. If I knew it was this hard, I would not have bought it, even for 2.99.

It did't download the whole book. Very dissopointing. This had some great books in it, and I would have rated it a lot higher, however, it failed to download over half of the promised titles. DON'T buy it!

I got a 99 on this test for Frucci! I liked this book because it made sense. It was a good old fashioned story that was a welcome break from all the Heart of Darkness crap we did. I loved Mr. Darcy: a completely misunderstood guy. I think I drank about 4 cups of tea while reading this book, and spent only one weekend reading the whole thing. On the whole, not as ominous a task as I first thought.

Good collection - have not read them all yet

I love all Jane Austin because she's comfortable, she's clever, she's timeless, she's accessible, she's romantic... she's also trendy right now... The best book: Pride and Prejudice, of course. The next best: Persuasion. The one I like the least: Northanger Abbey. And, I should mention that this large book is not the best for: bedtime reading, a purse book, reading in line... etc. :)

Austen is so popular because of the television- and movie-adaptations now that she's popular for the wrong reasons, to some degree. She was a superb novelist--and extremely smart about gender, economics, power, and social-class.

Good books. Slow read though.

I bought this set after reading First Impressions by Charlie Lovett, a mystery involving Jane Austen's writing. I have not finished this entire collection, but find the stories to be an interesting look at life in Jane Austen's society. It is also interesting to me to see the similarities between her society and those of the American south in the 1800s. I think Scarlett O'Hara would fit right in! I am nearly finished reading Emma and look forward to reading Alexander McCall Smith's Emma: A Modern Retelling. One note of warning: I have found some errors in my Nook version; it will sometimes read Be when He makes sense, for instance.
