Do yourself a favor and go read "Pride and Prejudice." Seriously. It will sweep you away. People think the Stephanie Meyer books are good? Pfft. They obviously need to go read a real romance, not a YA romance masquerading as vampire lit.

After reading "Pride and Prejudice," though, do yourself another favor and don't bother with the rest of Jane Austen's novels. P&P is the pinnacle of her literary talent, and unfortunately most of her other novels have the same feel--girl meets boy, they go to Bath, girl loses boy, girl gets boy back, they get married and girl's life is miraculously perfect. Oh, and they live happily ever after, of course. With their annoying relatives.

Personally speaking, I rather liked "Persuasion," as well as parts of "Mansfield Park" and "Northanger Abbey," but nothing glows so brilliantly as "Pride and Prejudice." ( )

I love this book because it has all of Jane Austen's novels in one book. I have had this book a while and this is the first time I actually read through all her books. They are great!!!! ( )

And here is another reason why this is the best sort of book: it *is* long, and *patient*, and *content*-- but it has also very short chapters, and very close to reality, so as not to make one.... confused, or, should I say, stressed and, "nervous".

I dare not say more.

Now in Penguin Classics-a treasure trove of Jane Austen's novels

View our Austen-mania feature page here.

Few novelists have conveyed the subtleties and nuances of their own social milieu with the wit and insight of Jane Austen. Here in one volume are her seven great novels: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, and Lady Susan. Through her vivacious and spirited heroines and their circle, Austen vividly portrays English middle-class life as the eighteenth century came to a close and the nineteenth century began. Each of the novels is a love story and a story about marriage—marriage for love, for financial security, for social status. But they are not romances; ironic, comic, and wise, they are masterly evocations of the society Jane Austen observed. This beautiful volume covers the literary career of one of England’s finest prose stylists of any century.
