But they are not mere romances. Ironic, comic, and wise, they are masterly studies of the society Austen observed. Read more Read less. Add all three to Cart Add all three to List.

Please understand that I am not reviewing Miss Austen's works but rather this particular presentation of her books. The set is lovely to look at and will look nice on a shelf or desk just because they are pretty.
The binding is good and I really like it that each book has a ribbon marker so I won't be always misplacing my bookmarker! As many have stated, it is a very big shame that the stickers are on the back of each book. I am assuming that maybe because mine came in the winter months the sticker came off fairly easily, leaving no sticky residue. But it is obvious on every book that there was a sticker. Some show a dark mark the size and shape of the sticker.
But most of them took off some of the ink on the beautiful covers when the sticker came off. So you have a mark and some of the ink is missing on many of them. This needs to be rectified. I have posted photos of the backs of some of the books.

The only other complaint I have at this point is that the case is just a tad too tight. Just a couple of centimeters added to the width and height would make it so much easier to remove a book from the case. As it is now, I have to turn the box over and dump the books out enough so that I can grasp the spine of the one I want to pull it out. I can only see this being more of a problem in the future as books tend to expand when read.
I am interested in some of the other sets they offer, but right now would hesitate to spend that much money considering the flaws I mentioned. I gave it four stars because it was a shrink wrapped box set, but each book had a price sticker on it. This wouldn't be a problem except that when removing the stickers, they took off the pink coloring on the book cover. I got these because the covers are beautiful, so it made me mad that a few of them are ruined now. Beautiful set with everything she wrote.
I'm enjoying the volumes very much. I wish those stupid stickers hadn't been on the backs of the books, though, because when you take them off they ruin some of the cover design and leave a mark where they were taken from. This book seems to be someone's summarized version of Jane Austen's work.
Each chapter appears to be shorter and has lost a lot of the descriptive language and detail from the original book. The cover is very pixilated, the text is probably a 12 or 14 point font that looks like something I can print from home. It also claims to have been printied in CA the same day I ordered it. Now I know why it was so inexpensive, yet still a complete waste of my money since I actually wanted to read the entire work of Jane Austen. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is another of the books in the Austen Project, modern authors retelling the Austen classics.
This one even has the same name as the original. Val McDermid is a successful author of crime thrillers, none of which I have read. She accepted the challenge of updating Northanger Abbey and chose to make the heroine, Catherine Morland, into a Twilight-loving, vampire-obsessed teenager. Since I'm not a big fan of Twilight or vampires in general - although I quite like Dracula - that artistic choice made it very hard for me to like Cat, as she is called in the book.
The Complete Novels of Jane Austen (Knickerbocker Classics) : Jane Austen :
She seemed utterly shallow and without substance, and since the book is all about her, that left the plot feeling quite flimsy and frivolous for me. So, we have Cat Morland, sheltered, homeschooled daughter of a vicar and his wife from the little village of Piddle Valley in Dorset. It is a happy, loving family with four children, a brother older than Cat and two sisters who are younger. The family has quite straitened financial circumstances and there's not much chance for travel, so it is very exciting for Cat when their childless neighbors, the Allens, invite her to travel with them to Edinburgh for the summer Fringe Festival.
When they arrive in Edinburgh, Cat's world explodes with possibilities. She essentially takes the city by storm.

Then she finds that Bella has her cap set for Cat's brother, James, who is a school friend of her brother, and she is equally determined that Cat will be paired with that odious brother, Johnny. Pride and Prejudice is Jane Austen's classic comic romance, in which the five Bennett sisters try to find that most elusive creature: This is Austen at the height of her powers: Northanger Abbey is a hilarious parody of 18th century gothic novels.

Thus, the character of Lady Susan is developed through many branches as Austen suggests complications of identity and the way in which that identity is based on interaction rather than on solitary constructions of personality. Read by Susannah Harker. Austen has not only created, but also brought to life the world inhabited by her characters through her vivid depictions and clever use of wit.
