The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler

Title: The Jane Austen Book Club

Author: Karen Joy Fowler

Genre: Fiction


The Take-Away: Dissappointing. I kept waiting for something to happen. Much of the story was told through flashback or internal dialogue.

The one intriguing point was the identity of the first person narrator that introduced each character and the change in point of view. Finding out was a let-down.

I received this book through Bookcrossing. Most of the other members in the book ring had similar feelings. The link to their comments is in the bonus section.

Recommendation: Even as a Jane Austen fan, I can't think of anyone to recommend it to. Which is quite side because the blurbs on the book itself are quite lovely.

Bonus Review: Bookcrossing Listing

Technorati tag:

Everything else in June
