This is the only Jane Austen I haven't read yet. I've always admired her ability to write about the finer points of life, even though a war in Europe was raging at that time. LS is on my TBR list.

Dorothy, I've always thought Austen very good at showing the plight of women during her time and very gutsy for writing about it. Thanks Litlove, I am looking forward to your thoughts on the book. The sad part is Danielle, that even today aggressive women are still seen as bitchy. And you are right, it is amazing what Austen can do in 100 pages!

I had to laugh at your comment, too, about how she would have been a successful business man! I think you are right. Here she just seems pretty bitchy, but if she were a man she would be aggressive--but in a good way! It is amazing, however, everything she accomplished in less than 100 pages!

I'm really enjoying everyone's posts about Lady Susan, and I will catch up. This is beautifully written as always, Stefanie, with your usual razor-sharp perceptions!

I like your point about Lady Susan not having any satisfying outlet for her energy and abilities -- she WOULD be wealthy if she were a man. As it is she can only marry for money.
