Lady Susan Jane Austen Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Although the theme, together with the focus on character study and moral issues, is close to Austen's published work (Sense and Sensibility was also originally written in the epistolary form), its outlook is very different, and the heroine has few parallels in 19th-century literature.

User reviews about this book
Great Jane Austen Book
This one is one I hadn’t heard of prior to the Love and Friendship movie coming out. But I loved the movie and equally loved the book! Although the plot is slightly different in both, I love the letter-style narration and emotion Austen can evoke from the reader toward Lady Susan. It’s a great, clean read!
A must read
I'm a fan of Austen and have always loved her books. I've read all of her other books, but saved this for last and I was not disappointed. I enjoyed the style and the wit, and I think anyone who likes Austen will most certainly enjoy this uniquely written book.
Jane Austen At Her Best
Jane Austen's novels have always included a worthy villain- but this is the first one told chiefly from the villain's viewpoint. Austen's incredible understanding of human character, motivation and interaction shines forth in this story of a woman determined to lie herself through life and the way those around her respond to it. It reminds me most of Mansfield Park, though this story is certainly unique among her works.
What can I say, I love the book. Come on it's Jane Austen.
