Read full description of the books:
With pictures galore, Le Faye gives a short bio of Jane Austen, some cultural background of her world, and runs through each of Austen's works. Also includes contemporary maps (i.e., from about 1805) of the English counties Jane either set her stories in or that she personally lived in.
Most of the pictures were great, especially of places and scenery, the buildings and architecture of the time. Sometimes Le Faye tried to suggest a personal portrait as maybe portraying this or that character, and IMHO she was way off base, for I never agreed with any of her ideas.
I pored over the maps, but found them extremely difficult to read. Either the background color didn't work, or the font needed to be different, or they needed to fill the page better, but I had to use a magnifying glass. Still, they're maps -- of England!! (lol)
I didn't gain much new information, either about Jane Austen or her world. I'd already read a couple of biographies, and I'm a pretty fair reader of English history and culture.
And I did not at all like Le Faye's discussing the novels. I don't need a re-telling of Jane's works, and she had no scholarly insight to give. I especially didn't like her suggestions for what could maybe happen to everybody after the novel ends.
So, I guess it's a keeper. If, though, later on it gets pulled from my shelves to make room for something else, I don't think I'll mind too much.
