eBook Recommendation: Bitch in a Bonnet

If you have ever read a Jane Austen novel, you need to go to Amazon and pick up Bitch In a Bonnet. It’s 99 cents and worth every single damn penny and more. You probably spent more than that for a soda to go with your lunch.

In it, the author shows us how misunderstood Jane Austen has become. She’s perceived as being a dewy-eyed, marriage minded romance author when truly, she was a brilliant satirist and social commentator.

If you don’t find yourself grinning and then laughing out loud while reading Bitch In a Bonnet, there is something wrong with you.

Here’s an except from the review of Pride and Prejudice. This is right after Darcy finds Elizabeth visiting Pemberly and has asked if he can bring his sister to meet her.

Lizzy naturally expects that Darcy will bring Georgiana to call the day after the girl returns to Pemberly; but in fact they show up the morning before that, which pretty much means Darcy must have allowed her about ninety seconds to drop her bags and splash some water on her face before hustling her off to Lambton. It’s as though he fears Lizzy might change her mind and hop a freight train out of town before he can get the two women together.

  1. You forgot to mention that it’s only 99 cents! I bought it immediately upon reading the paragraph at the end of your review.

    I’m reading “Emma” right now for a book club, so this couldn’t be more timely.

  2. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

    He doesn’t like Mansfield Park one teensy tiny little bit, so I’m having a bit of trouble getting through that part because I don’t hate Fanny with every ounce of my being.

    I’ll be sure to edit the review to point out it’s only 99 cents. 🙂
