Among the Janeites: A Journey through the World of Jane Austen Fandom - Deborah Yaffe

After struggling to settle down with a book, this one just won't let me go! I've laughed, shared rather long quotes with my husband (he hates when a book causes me to do this), and am taking notes! Notes! I feel like I'm in college except none of my classes would have picked such a fun book to read.


There are so many parts of this book that have me agreeing or pausing to mull something over. It is at the same time affirming my love for Austen's works and the areas of the Janeites I take part in...while at the same time causing me to look at my private obsession with her work (one in particular) and find it lacking. I can't quite explain it, though I believe I'll try to in my review. Anyway, this is not just a great book but it's become a personal book. I'm already trying to find my own copy. I'd have already finished this but I find my self sitting alone and having to digest what I've read.


I can't remember which of you on here wanted my thoughts on this book after I read Jane's Fame, but I can't thank you enough for giving me the push I needed to request this through interlibrary loan.
