A Jane Austen Education: How Six Novels Taught Me About Love, Friendship, and the Things That Really Matter - William Deresiewicz For some it might be just another Jane Austen-related book, for me it was equally delightful and useful. Useful, as in: Look! There's more Jane Austen trivia I had no idea about. Far from being a Janeite or an Austenite, or how on earth they call themselves (I've only read Pride and Prejudice. Shameful, I know. However, I took it upon myself to find the perfect male character in Austen's novels - I already have a favourite, but really, how can you judge a book by its movie, knowing they add all the glam to the characters and situations? So, I owe her myself 4 books. And if I took this decision (God knows if I'll actually keep my promise!) it's only the author's fault, since he wrote in such a manner that makes you want at least watch the films again if not read the books.
