I'm interested to read the book. The only other Austen I've read was Pride and Prejudice, and I read it a long time ago. Honestly, I didn't particularly care for it. It seemed to me somewhat like it was to that era what a romantic comedy film is to this era - light and fun entertainment where the girl gets the guy in the end.
Perhaps I'll see Austen from a different light now. I don't think I would've read another Austen for a long time if not for a book club, so I'm glad for the reason now to do so.
