I enjoyed it very I finished Emma and, of course, it did not dissapoint. I always think it's really cool that Jane Austen books have been around for just about 200 years and she's still entertaining people. She was educated primarily by her father and older brothers as well as through her own reading.

Jane Austen once compared her writing to painting on a little bit of ivory, 2 inches square.

What did Jane Austen write? Jane Austen is known for six novels: Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814), Emma (1815), and Persuasion and Northanger Abbey (both 1817). In them, she created vivid fictional worlds, drawing much of her material from the circumscribed world of English country gentlefolk that she knew. Jane Austen was born in the Hampshire village of Steventon, where her father, the Reverend George Austen, was rector. Jane Austen’s lively and affectionate family circle provided a stimulating context for her writing.

With a sharp wit and keen eye, Jane Austen painted indelible, finely realized portraits of Georgian life, with its intricate rules of behavior, social divisions, and delightful diversions. No one bettered her in capturing the sometimes complicated mating dance that led to true love, and her compelling, intelligent heroines are unequalled in all literature--and have also translated wonderfully to film and television. At the same time, her piercing humor exposed the follies of the age and ripped apart characters vain, foolish, greedy, arrogant, and callous. Here are three of her best novels, all in one volume and beautifully illustrated with period images: Sense and Sensibility, a richly textured masterpiece about two sisters with wildly differing temperaments; Emma, with its endearing but deeply flawed protagonist; and the deliciously lighthearted Northanger Abbey. If you've read these before, re-experience the wonder anew; if not, prepare to be captivated with every page!
