Review by Carpe_Librum
I received this adorable little volume (smaller than a post-it note) as a gift from my nephew. He lives in the UK, making this little gift even more special.Surprisingly for a book-lover, I haven't read any Jane Austen yet, and I was keen to find out more in Jane Austen - Her Complete Novels in One Sitting by Jennifer Kasius.I started taking this book to appointments (physio, OPSM etc.) and it certainly drew attention from others, but it took me well over one sitting to get through it. Broken down with lists of characters and summary of plot, this little gem covered six Austen novels. The novels were all about romance, marrying within your station and the plot summaries expounded incredibly dull novels.As a result of reading Jane Austen - Her Complete Novels in One Sitting, I'm no longer keen to read Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice, both of which have been on my TBR list for over 3 years. This being the case, I think this miniature book has failed to pique my interest as a reader, but I will always love it for sentimental reasons, and think of my gorgeous nephew whenever I see it.
