DNF review alert If you don t think they should exist do not read thisJocelyn and Sylvia two middle aged women one never married and the other crying rivers because she just got divorced Bernadette a sixty seven year old Liz Taylor Prudie a French teacher that shares her thoughts in French whether you speak it or not Allegra Sylvia s daughter a thirty year old lesbian who cannot get a happy relationship and Grigg a guy that I don t know what to say about this choice All these people start a Jane Austen book clubThis book starts slow and I don t think its pace ever changes I couldn t finish this thing I couldn t find the energy so I put an end to this weird self inflicted painWhile I was reading this book I couldn t stop thinking that if you are going to write about this outstanding author or her works without a gram of her wit and fine humor then please do not do it Save a tree and your dignity Fowler s writing style can t get any drier Let s be honest some of these characters from different points of view have experienced failure they might be considered losers though that is a harsh word so let s call them non winners My point is there are clever ways of describing non winners however Fowler picked the dullest ways possible They lacked development in my opinion Funny thing there are many unnecessary and over detailed anecdotes that tried to explain some context but they only made me forget about the whole plot okay let s imagine there is a plot So this Daria on Valium kind of writing really bored me And that is a big problem for me because I prefer writing over plot I can deal with an average plot but the writing must be good And this is certainly not the case Like I said all these people are members of a Jane Austen book club so you could imagine all the witty comments you will read No animal passion Allegra said about Emma Really Just find some Sade Book Club there s some animal for you to enjoy I found some other very insightful remarks like Emma is a snob Yeah mind blowing A couple of lines later I was reading some Jocelyn s story about tennis and yadda yadda yadda Then back to the book And so on And so on I was lost Cohesion coherence connection It is a literary techniue sure but if you are going to use it you have to be very crafty to pull that off lady And again this is not the case I was frankly annoyed by all this And one of my rules in life that helps me preserve my mental health is to not force myself to read something I am not enjoying I don t have to prove anything to anyone really So if by let s say page 50 I feel like I couldn t care less about the whole story then adi s Anyway there is a movie based on this book It is one of those chick flicks you can watch on a Sunday afternoon I didn t like it that much Feel free to ask then why did you read the book Because I have read somewhere that the screenplay had little to do with the book So I thought it was going to be better Poor child Let s just say that you might want to watch the movie and leave it at that I found it much entertaining than the book Sacrilege I know but in this case it is the sad truthJan 24 2014 Also on my blog

Review The Jane Austen Book Club Review Ö eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ø Karen Joy Fowler Karen Joy Fowler Ø 7 Summary Ips 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. Find all of my reviews at m not exactly what you d call a Jane Austen fangirl like the folks in this book club but I do have a sort of an unhealthy relationship with Pride and Prejudice along with any and all of its gazillions of retellings So why did it take me so long to read this book Well basically it s all Fern s fault Have you ever been terrified of reading anything else by an author after having sort of a lifechanging moment with the first thing you read by them and you just can t imagine their other stuff even being able to hold a candle to the other book s greatness Yeah that s pretty much what my problem was with this despite it having a title that pretty much guaranteed the story within would provide at least a modicum of enjoyment for me It may have taken years but I finally decided to nut up and read this out on the deck earlier this year when it wasn t hot enough to fuse my underwear to my ass I don t know what I was scared of It was exactly what I hoped it would be with characters who I would love know in real life And while it certainly does not compare to We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves it shouldn t have to They are totally different stories that I wouldn t even categorize in the same genre
