Overview

Pride and Prejudice - An elegant tableau revolving around the five Bennett daughters, including clever, strong-spirited Elizabeth. Austen's masterpiece is a study of love, loss and snobbery.

Sense and Sensibility - The engaging story of sisters Elinor and Marianne, whose lives are turned upside down when they are left almost penniless following the death of their father. Two men with whom the sisters form attachments present more unforeseen challenges along the way.

Emma - Emma is an exquisitely crafted social portrait of late Eighteenth-century society, widely considered to be Austen's most literarily accomplished work. Emma Woodhouse, self-appointed meddling matchmaker, stands to lose out on love herself if she isn't careful.

Persuasion - In part autobiographical, Persuasion has a quieter sense of humour, and takes a more serious tone, than some of Austen's other novels. Anne Elliot is revisited by her ex-fianc e, coinciding with a downturn in her family's fortunes, and has some choices to make.

Northanger Abbey - Young and susceptible, Catherine Morland expects dark secrets and many dangers to be lurking in the hidden recesses of Northanger Abbey. In fact, the real obstacles lying in her path are more mundane but just as serious as her imagined horrors.

The collection also includes 2 Bonus CDs including The Watsons, an early Austen short story, and a collection of letters. Titles read by highly-acclaimed British actresses including Anna Massey, Harriet Walter and Joanna Lumley.

Can't believe I got 7 Jane Austen books for this cheap. I love all of her works, but Pride and Prejudice is my favorite. Each book has its own link in the table of contents.

There are so many pages!!! Wow. But the novels had links in the table of contents. Also, the language of the novels were not "edited" or changed to current language, which I found to my liking. Really good collection and I would recommend it. Just brace yourself!;) LOVE JANE AUSTEN BOOKS!!!:D

I've seen reviews that say the links do not work and the text is formatted incorrectly. I found when I adjusted the font size everything was fine. I had no problems with the links either. I'm glad to see the entire collection in one place and I do have to admit-I've never read one of her books. I am happy with this selection.

A good, complete version of all Austen novels, literally at your fingertips! I'll never be without my Jane.

Any fan of Jane Austen's work will love to have this volume in their collection. To read them all for the first time, second, or in some cases tenth or twelfth, is to take a trip back in time and space to an era that is brilliantly drawn with multi-dimensional characters we feel we know. The stories and pages come to life and deliver an unforgettable experience.

Cost me almost nothing and have had no problem being able to read all the books. Never a bad choice to read Austen, in any form. She easily captures the women and men of her time and her characters are everything from ridiculous and amusing to strong and sophisticated.

I've read the usual 6 published works of Jane Austen many times, but this is the first time I've had a chance to see her "Juvenilia". Thanks for making this possible!

Missing two and a half books. Links don't work. Too many pages makes reader very slow.

BE AWARE. This is NOT a rating for Jane Austen's books, but for this edition. 1. It is missing "Persuasion." They included "Lady Susan," instead. Persuasion is my 2nd favorite. 2. Also, the publisher listed under Product Details is different (listed as Amazing Sci-Fi Classics, but is Blackmore Dennett). 3. The order of the books in the Table of Contents is not the same as in the product listing. 4. I have also seen reviews on other sites that the novels are abridged, but I have not checked this. It feels petty to complain about a Free eBook, but I do think B & N needs to correct the listing. I did contact Customer Support on 9/24/2018, and was told to Archive the book and corrections would be made in a few days.

The description states "This ebook includes an active table of contents for easy navigation." It does not. You must guess the page number and find the beginning of each book by trial and error unless you wish to read the books in the order they are presented. The writing is of course fantastic.
