Jane Austen book review  Oct 9, 2008
I purchased this book in conjunction with a class I am taking on Jane Austen books. It is a valuable addition to the reading of her books and includes many facts regarding her life and times.
Jane Austen Fans Will Love It  Aug 19, 2008
I got this book for my friend's birthday since she is obsessed with Jane Austen (as am I). This book is great for someone who wants to learn about Jane's life. You will learn many interesting things along the way, but I thought most of the information I had heard of before. Nevertheless, it's a great, fun read, and a cute gift for Jane Austen fanatics.
Austenisims  Jul 22, 2008
Most biographies of Jane Austen will reveal the quiet life of maiden Aunt Jane, who scribbled in secret, loved to dance, and lived her entire life in the country removed from the chaos of the world. Did you also know that she was also romantic, tragic and mysterious? Patrice Hannon's 101 Things You Didn't Know About Jane Austen: The Truth About The World's Most Intriguing Literary Heroine,is a gem of little Austenisms quite suitable for gift giving. Despite having one of the longest and most misleading titles of any book about Jane Austen of recent memory, the contents are as appealing as the easy to read format. In Jane Austen's 18th-century world, acquired knowledge was considered one of the most powerful and important skills of a polished society. Today we recognize the same benefits, but want our education to be forthright and expeditious. For anyone interested in the knowledge of Jane Austen's life and works in a compact and fact driven format, this book can serve as a great resource and quick reference. Categorized into seven parts Birth of a Heroine, Brilliant Beginnings, Silence and Disappointed Love, The Glorious Years, Heroes and Heroines, Untimely Death, and Austen and Popular Culture: From Eighteenth Century to the Twenty-First, this illuminating guide takes you through all aspects of Jane Austen's life journey and writing experience, revealing common facts, new insights, and minutia. If you are interested, as I was, to know which heroine most resembles the author herself, who were the real Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy and why Jane never married, you will not be disappointed in this bright little book that is well researched, engaging, and incredibly practical.

Very Useful and Insightful, Presentation Lacking  May 22, 2008
This book is small, square in shape, and paperback. It is not overly impressive on a bookshelf (if we are talking aesthetics), and there are no illustrations or images.

Usually, when purchasing non-fiction/biographical material on Austen, I like them to be well presented and with interesting illustrations or examples, and this book falls short in that aspect.

However, for a true Austen fan, that shouldn't encroach on their decision too much. The content is well-researched, combining extracts from the novels, Jane's letters and wider reading to give a thorough look at all aspects of Jane's life and that presented in the novels.

The information presented under each "thing" i.e of the 101 things, is bite sized, making this a good book to read on the side, picking up here and there.

In conclusion, this book is not essential for an Austen fan, however it is insightful and worth a read. Again, I would prefer better presentation.
Nice Balance of Popular Interest and Scholarship  Dec 24, 2007
This little book, while infinitely readable, was also packed full of wonderful scholarship. I read the book after I finished the last of the 6 main publications of Jane Austen and found its organization so conducive to bringing together themes and tropes in the novels. Dr. Hannon has found a very fine balance between interesting and salacious details (like the romantic interests in Austen's too-short life) to literary scholarship (most interestingly for me, her discussion of the treatment of parents in the novels, and how they don't paint a very fine picture of marital bliss). With Jane Austen, you either get silly books full of fluff, or boring attempts to keep the work as scholastic as possible, but Dr. Hannon has found a nice way to blend these two situations for both types of readers -- serious scholars and Janeites.

I didn't expect to read this book as a narrative, straight through from beginning to end, but I did, and loved the way information was organized and presented. There is a references page, but very little citation within the text. Most of what I read, though, was familiar, and only really revolutionary in the way it was brought together to concentrate on recurring images, themes, and tropes in the works (including all the Juvenilia and other unpublished/unfinished novels). Section headings include "Bad Boys," "Prudence and Romance," and four sections on "Fine Naval Fervour." Inbetween are also sections frm Austen's life rather than her novels, such as "Arrested for Shoplifting," and "Dedicated to the One I Hate." There is also a ton of accessible information on publishing and the market (from the gothic to marriage market novels). Fine book, and any fan of the the novels or new-to-the-field scholar would find it packed full of fun information and prompts for further study.
