I rate everything four or five stars Probably because if I don't like a book it somehow never gets finished I'm usually reading four or five things at once switching back and forth as different moods strike me unless of course I get drawn deeply into a story and don't want to leaveSuch was the case here I adored this book It seemed like such a pat premise but then was full of such depth such a surprising understanding and interpretation of Austen and Heinlein Le Guin the Bronte sisters and Rand even though only in passing that I was entirely floored and charmed by it I even loved the damned movie JeebusI don't really want to use this tool for synopses or reviews or anything I have no idea what I'll end up saying about each book but about this one I'll say that if you love Austen or sci fi or just engaging characters brilliantly sketched you will probably really enjoy this book It goes very very well with tea

I’m convinced the first thing Jane Austen is going to do on the Day of Resurrection is hire a lawyer and sue the philistines who have commandeered her name and characters However this book is beneath her notice A clichéd combination of unfulfilled women could hardly be conceived a middle aged woman who’s just been left by her husband; her lesbian daughter who falls easily and unhappily in love; a spinster who breeds dogs; a dissatisfied French teacher in an unhappy marriage; and finally the six times divorced earth mother who brings them all together for six months of Jane Austen book clubbing They’re joined by some computer guy named Grigg if that’s even a name who probably was supposed to add a bit of male perspective and — surprise — a love interest but the book is so poorly written that he’s virtually indiscernible from the women Their “discussions” are banal the correspondence to their personal lives contrived and the characters themselves both irritating and supremely boring which I suppose must be some sort of an accomplishment Normally I like reading about losers and rejects A Confederacy of Dunces my journals but these people and their self created angst grated on my nerves I borrowed this on cd from the library and found myself skipping ahead because I simply couldn’t take any of their inane conversations And I'm shocked — shocked — to report that skipping parts of the story didn't really detract from its overall flow Confession Embarrassingly enough I did watch the movie on dvd because it stars that dreamy Hugh Dancy who tragically looks about half my age and body mass and the movie was not nearly as bad as the book – extremely chick flicky but not downright dreadful
