Novels by Jane Austin are all concerned with seemingly by trivial things like daily life,love affairs and marriages of a few households, she enjoys such high prestige in the west.Some people compare her novels to chinese olive,which tastes increasingly delicious as you chew it slowly.I like her novels very much.do you share the same feeling or not?

I love Jane Austin novels. She was very observant as to life in her time and her society's rules. I think she busts the myth about women in that time period in both what she writes and how she lived her life. I was always told that women had to get married as there were no other choice for them. But, both she in her real life and her characters often didn't want to be married or they waited until they found the right man.

The favorite book of mine is Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice.In her book, there's always a comparison between the marriages of her ideality and the realitical ones.In her eyes,women of her age mostly didn't know what they should angle for,instead of fortune or reputation.And that's happiness based on true love.Maybe this is the reason why I just can't help falling in love with her novels.

I love Jane Austen novels, because she completely drags you into the world of Regency England. Her characters are witty and well-written, and the overall storylines are memorable. The relationships between characters are complex. Also, she is brilliant at foreshadowing through humor, such as when Mrs. Bennett sends Jane on a horseback trip through the rain in the hopes of setting her daughter up with Mr. Bingley. I find her novels get better every time I re-read them, as I tend to understand and pick up on her subtle humor and dry wit.

I love Jane Austen and I have read all her novels and enjoyed them very much. I studied two of them at school - Persuasion and Pride and Prejudice - then decided to read all her work. I think she writes beautifully, I love her sense of humour. I am also pleased to see she writes strong female characters.
