I loved the book just as much as I loved the movie, despite its differences, I often thought I was reading something entirely different. It’s an amazing story of a group of women, and one man, who get together once a month to discuss Jane Austen, while also going through their own emotional and life changing journey. Each month is not only dedicated to another Austen book, but also to another character’s life growing up and then in the present. Karen Joy Fowler also goes as far as including brief synopsis of each Austen novel, and many other interesting artifacts at the end of the story to bring the reader in more to the life of Jane Austen (including, Austen’s family responses to the stories, book club questions, and references). I loved the journey as much as I love reading Jane Austen.
