*** Many thanks to Laurel @austenprose for tour invite and publisher providing review copy, in exchange for and honest review. ***

The Jane Austen Society was beautifully written historical fiction that revolved around seven characters, their love for Jane Austen books and their idea of Jane Austen Society. It was about getting over loss and grief, camaraderie and companionship one find in mutual love and passion for books, romance, village and Post WWII life, and power of reading.

Writing was beautiful. It had that classic feel that took me right to post WWII, 1940s era, written multiple third person narrative set in the quaint village, Chawton, Hampshire where Jane Austen spent last few years of her life writing her world famous books. It was so well written that I had hard time believing this was author’s debut novel.

What I loved in this book was backstory of all characters, beautiful description of Chawton, home of Jane Austen, Knight Estate and its library. Best of all was banter and discussion between characters on Jane Austen books, their dissection of all Austen characters and their passionate love for all her books, and more importantly how they understood Jane Austen through her writing, her view towards society and observation of people through her characters. I have only read Pride and Prejudice and I have to say I didn’t understood the book the way these characters did.

Overall, The Jane Austen Society was simple yet beautiful, lovely and refreshing historical fiction with amazing characters and setting.

I wanted to love this light, easy read about a book lover’s group, but I guess I needed to love Jane Austin’s works a bit more to understand the intricacies of the storyline. I did fall for Dr. Gray and his unrecognized love for Adeline. They were just the sweetest. If you love Austen’s books, I think this will be a perfect fit for you. I liked it but it didn’t fit me perfectly, that’s all.

I loved the 1st book and the book about a bookstore. I just can’t remember the characters who appeared in this book.

DNF at 24%. If you’re a quarter thru a book and the only thing that happens is a me of the seventeen characters gets assaulted… you’re doing it wrong. Also, “Jane Austen Fan” is not a whole personality.
