    Still a favorite Many readers consider Jane Austen a favorite author after more than 200 years. There is no way to measure the impact her novels have had on readers' lives. Pride and Prejudice is a hands-down favorite. Readers never seem to tire of it and most read it more than once. Jane's father was a vicar; there were eight children. There were many deaths, as was the norm for that time. However, so many people died that my mind turned to my other favorite genre, true crime!

There were many deaths, as was the norm for that time. However, so many people died that my mind turned to my other favorite genre, true crime! Several women died in childbirth, which is almost unheard of in the present day. Whether or not you are a Jane Austen fan, this brief history is quite interesting. 2

    Utile per avere una prima idea di base sulla vita della Austen, inglese facilissimo anche per chi ha un livello basso. Ideale per poi leggere qualche biografia più approfondita, o iniziare a leggere i romanzi con più consapevolezza.

    I think this book is a must for those who have not explored Jane Austen books. I had read Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility a very long time ago. Always, I am left with the pondering questions: how did this woman gain such insight into how the human condition manifests itself in accordance with societal expectations or how it rebels for the same reasons. Her books are timeless. I have enjoyed them more the second time around. But, this brief autobiography added to my intrigue as why I think this book is a must for those who have not explored Jane Austen books.

Read it, for it will add to your philosophical ponderings of what drives a person to write so honestly about human relations. Though all her musings are fictionalized, her questions, her characterizations of human behavior, and her respect for those among us who live life with a bit more spirit than others is so refreshing. I always get lost in her books. It is a wonderful feeling. I will save this very short biography to refer to when I reread the next Jane Austen book.

    I love these Hourly History ebooks this one is a biography of Jane Austen (book2). I have read some of her books but not in the order that they were published. This book brought everything together starting with her father, a reverend, a teacher that taught Latin and Greek, and ran a family cheese farm a very busy person. Jane's mother was also busy, with seven children, running the household, washing clothes, cooking, tending to farm animals, played the piano and wrote poems.

Jane's mother was also busy, with seven children, running the household, washing clothes, cooking, tending to farm animals, played the piano and wrote poems. This small book tells us about the children, their education, their marriages and their home life. Then we take the journey with Jane, her home life, her books, her life experiences and when each book was written and published. This is the first time I have seen title, dates, and publications of each book all in order and so easy to understand. I am excited and extremely enjoying these History ebooks, thank you for sharing with everyone.

    An Enlightening and Concise Biography of A Lady I greatly enjoyed this concise overview of the life of one of the world's most prominent and entertaining female authors. It was just enough to feel as though you were peering into a window at her life- not as a close friend, perhaps, but certainly as a village acquaintance.

This book was an excellent introduction to the life and times, just the thing to pique the interest and get you started on finding out more. A wonderful addition to your homeschool curriculum, or an interesting read for any fan of Austin's work. I do wish it had a map of Austin's England, a family tree that included all acquaintances mentioned, and a list of sources for historical publications written by early biographers, such as the first, written by her nephew; but I understand that these titles are ment for quick introductory reads. Nevertheless, and extremely enjoyable little book. I look forward to reading more from Hourly History.

    Hourly History has excelled again!  I've read most of Jane Austen's books many times and thought I knew everything about her.  This book proves how wrong I was.  There were three times Jane might have married; I only knew of two.  No wonder she was so astute about understanding people, she was surrounded by lots of relatives and friends. Although I love Pride and Prejudice and have read it dozens of times, I really think Persuasion is her masterpiece.  Jane seems to very little to work with the c Hourly History has excelled again!  I've read most of Jane Austen's books many times and thought I knew everything about her.  This book proves how wrong I was.  There were three times Jane might have married; I only knew of two.  No wonder she was so astute about understanding people, she was surrounded by lots of relatives and friends.

    According to this book Jane Austin concentrated on writing about relationships. One thing that happened, though, is that a lot of her letters were destroyed which, to me, is a crime against history. The same thing happened to letters of Maude Adams and to pages from journals kept by Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll.) The book discusses her schooling (which was different from boys), some of the books she wrote and her health problems that led to her death.

    I got this book for free on kindle, so I like the free part. It's a brief biography of Jane Austen. I'm glad I knew more about Jane Austen now. But I think this work could be presented in a more interesting manner. Its a boring narrative. If the author didn't provide me this book for free, I wouldn't even rate it 2🌟.

    I found this short biography interesting. Jane Austen's life was similar to the books that she wrote. She was remarkable in that she showed a desire to write from a very young age, during a time when it was not really socially acceptable. She was a ground breaker, an observer or human relationships, and a wordsmith. In the end, her books were her lasting legacy. I found this short biography interesting.

    I didn’t know much about Jane Austen. This little book covers much about her short life and the times she lived in. This should’ve been edited better as I noticed multiple errors. Otherwise, I enjoyed this short book. Austen lived in a very different time in which it wasn’t respectable for a woman to be a writer and women were dependent on men.

    While I was familiar with Jane Austen's novels, I knew almost nothing about her actual life. Although this is a shorter book, it contained a lot of information on the famous author. I learned that J.K. Rowling, creator of the Harry Potter series, said in 2003 that Jane Austen was her favorite writer, so that's saying something. Jane was born and lived during England’s Georgian era. The early part of the book discusses her family life and the time that the parents spent reading to and educating the While I was familiar with Jane Austen's novels, I knew almost nothing about her actual life. Although this is a shorter book, it contained a lot of information on the famous author. I learned that J.K. Rowling, creator of the Harry Potter series, said in 2003 that Jane Austen was her favorite writer, so that's saying something. Jane was born and lived during England’s Georgian era. The early part of the book discusses her family life and the time that the parents spent reading to and educating the children. In 1783, a set of circumstances led to Jane almost dying from an outbreak of either typhoid or diphtheria. She developed a love of playing the piano and reading, and also began writing at this time. The Austins went through a series of tragedies during the next years and the death of Jane's father left her, her mother and her sister in extreme financial difficulty. Eventually it became Jane's writings, particularly Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice, that were successful enough to support them. Mansfield Park followed which was a novel set in the time period of the Napoleonic wars with Britain. The story continues with more of Jane's successful writings as well as the onset of her health problems. There is discussion of a number of afflictions that may have beset her. The book wraps up listing a number of her writings that were published after her death. Despite this, her name didn't become that well known until a nephew wrote her biography. Overall, I enjoyed reading this condensed biography and found it interesting from start to finish. Many people have read her books; this is an opportunity to learn about her life.
