The Jane Austen Book Club PDF ✓ Austen Book Epub

The Extraordinary New York Times Bestseller In California's central valley five women and one man join to discuss Jane Austen's novels Over the six months they get together marriages are tested affairs begin unsuitable arrangements become suitable and love happens With her eye for the frailties of human behavior and her ear for the absurdities of social intercourse Karen Joy Fowler has never been wittier nor her characters appealing The result is a delicious dissection of modern relationships Dedicated Austenites will delight in unearthing the echoes of Austen that run through the novel but most readers will simply enjoy the vision and voice that despite two centuries of separation unite two great writers of brilliant social comedy

    I’m convinced the first thing Jane Austen is going to do on the Day of Resurrection is hire a lawyer and sue the philistines who have commandeered her name and characters However this book is beneath her notice A clichéd combination of unfulfilled women could hardly be conceived a middle aged woman who’s just been left by her husband her lesbian daughter who falls easily and unhappily in love a spinster who breeds dogs a dissatisfied French teacher in an unhappy marriage and finally the six times divorced earth mother who brings them all together for six months of Jane Austen book clubbing They’re joined by some computer guy named Grigg if that’s even a name who probably was supposed to add a bit of male perspective and — surprise — a love interest but the book is so poorly written that he’s virtually indiscernible from the women Their “discussions” are banal the correspondence to their personal lives contrived and the characters themselves both irritating and supremely boring which I suppose must be some sort of an accomplishment Normally I like reading about losers and rejects A Confederacy of Dunces my journals but these people and their self created angst grated on my nerves I borrowed this on cd from the library and found myself skipping ahead because I simply couldn’t take any of their inane conversations And I'm shocked — shocked — to report that skipping parts of the story didn't really detract from its overall flow Confession Embarrassingly enough I did watch the movie on dvd because it stars that dreamy Hugh Dancy who tragically looks about half my age and body mass and the movie was not nearly as bad as the book – extremely chick flicky but not downright dreadful
