"The Jane Austen Book Club" by Karen Joy Fowler

No comments

There are a few lines of dialog here about the Great One's books, but this is a story about the loves and foibles of a group of friends in a reading group. The kindly doyenne finds love and marriage in Costa Rica - we've lost count over how many marriages this makes. There are mix-and-match romances, and attempted setups with surprise twists.
I attempted while reading this, to consider whether the Austen books being discussed had any bearing on the action. I decided there was not. Maybe someone can enlighten me.

This is a wise, open-hearted book, and very funny when considering how women interact with the world and each other. Otherwise unremarkable. Another exhibit in why we view the bestseller list with a heavy helping of doubt.
