Day 108: The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler

I love Pride and Prejudice so for some reason I keep thinking I'll enjoy Jane Austen inspired novels. It is so far from the truth. Especially Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The writing was atrocious and the author failed to accurately express the spirit of the original characters.

The Jane Austen Book Club was yet another Friends of the SPL purchase. I read about five pages before I got bored and put it down. My sister loves chic lit so it's possible that she read it. It it wasn't for her I wouldn't have gotten anything out of that book sale. She made a cake out of the Cake Bible I picked up and it served as my breakfast for three consecutive mornings.
