The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler Book Summary


A book club discuss the works of Jane Austen and experience their own affairs of the heart in this charming “tribute to Austen that manages to capture her spirit” (The Boston Globe).

In California’s central valley, five women and one man join to discuss Jane Austen’s novels. Over the six months they get together, marriages are tested, affairs begin, unsuitable arrangements become suitable, and love happens. With her eye for the frailties of human behavior and her ear for the absurdities of social intercourse, Karen Joy Fowler has never been wittier nor her characters more appealing. The result is a delicious dissection of modern relationships.

Dedicated Austenites will delight in unearthing the echoes of Austen that run through the novel, but most readers will simply enjoy the vision and voice that, despite two centuries of separation, unite two great writers of brilliant social comedy.

The Jane Austen Book Club (Karen Joy Fowler) Book Reviews

Better than the filmI remember some of Jane's most memorable characters and picked up the film as "the perfect anecdote to life." on a trip to DC I wanted something to read on the flight home. I picked up the book and could not put it down. Joceyln and Allegra's stories are far more developed in the book especially roots of sexual assault and a mistrust if love. If you love Jane Austen and how she advocated the strength and resourcefulness of women... Read the book club. You would have wished Jane had been able to write 6 more..Score: 5/5

The Jane Austen Book ClubQuelle roman a clef! This author builds her characters in layers; revealing bit by bit, fascinatingly important facts. Time holds still while you read, yet time passes too quickly and you find yourself bereft after finishing. Sip slowly and enjoy this novel like a good wine! Ms. Fowler's wit and steady recounting of this tale of relationships is not unlike Ms. Austen's steady, modest pace. "I can't wait for the movie," said she sardonically..Score: 5/5
