The Jane Austen Book Club - Karen Joy Fowler As much as I wanted to like this book, i had a bit of a hard time with it. I kept trying to keep up with the Austen references, but I wasn't that familiar with Jane Austen, though I have read all her books. i assumed that the author was mirroring the book club characters with Austen characters, but I couldn't figure out which was which. I found the ending a little too, well Jane Austen. Everyone ends up paired and live happily ever after. Perhaps that was the point, but to me it was a little contrived.
