Will I ever give a Jane Austen book less than 5 stars? Doesn't look like it.
This is the second time I've read this book and I enjoyed it even more than I did the first time! Mr. Tilney is still the most hilarious flirt and I love how Catherine has a crush on him from the beginning, as I found that far more relatable than the accidentally-falling-in-love trope that is in many of Austen's other works. I'm not exactly sure what made this reading experience so fantastic? Probably the fact that the faux-Gothic style fit with Halloween so much and that I was able to read it with the rest of the Austentatious book club! Also, as I am now more versed in her other works, I was able to see how this (her first novel) showcased her early talents and inner reflections on whether novel writing was a worthy profession. This book may not be for everyone, but if you're looking for a lighthearted and relatively easy classic to read, pick this up!
[Original review from June 2015]
I really enjoyed this! I am, obviously, a huge fan of Jane Austen, but I had heard so little about this novel that I was unsure of it going in. It definitely isn't as perfect as Pride and Prejudice (nothing can be, let's be honest), but I loved the parody of 18th century gothic novels and found myself laughing at loud several times. Mr. Tilney, Catherine, and Eleanor were the only characters I really enjoyed in this novel as everyone else seemed to be vain, materialistic, and/or annoying. This both made me happy, as I had people to root against and laugh at, and unhappy, as the annoying conversations with Isabella and John got repetitive after a while. Still, I had a surprisingly fun time reading this and I can't wait to watch the adaptation with JJ Feild as Mr. Tilney (that beautiful, grammar-loving flirt) and swoon <3

Read information about the authorJane Austen was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature, her realism and biting social commentary cementing her historical importance among scholars and critics.
Austen lived her entire life as part of a close-knit family located on the lower fringes of the English landed gentry. She was educated primarily by her father and older brothers as well as through her own reading. The steadfast support of her family was critical to her development as a professional writer. Her artistic apprenticeship lasted from her teenage years until she was about 35 years old. During this period, she experimented with various literary forms, including the epistolary novel which she tried then abandoned, and wrote and extensively revised three major novels and began a fourth. From 1811 until 1816, with the release of Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1815), she achieved success as a published writer. She wrote two additional novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, both published posthumously in 1818, and began a third, which was eventually titled Sanditon, but died before completing it.
Austen's works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century realism. Her plots, though fundamentally comic, highlight the dependence of women on marriage to secure social standing and economic security. Her work brought her little personal fame and only a few positive reviews during her lifetime, but the publication in 1869 of her nephew's A Memoir of Jane Austen introduced her to a wider public, and by the 1940s she had become widely accepted in academia as a great English writer. The second half of the 20th century saw a proliferation of Austen scholarship and the emergence of a Janeite fan culture.
