Can a book about a fictional Jane Austen be enjoyed by people outside the regency/Austenite world? Let me give you Exhibit A- Christopher Lee Deards, a book reviewer who enjoys mostly horror, science fiction, and fantasy. Well, he just read the book and said:
Scott’s novel ate into my precious sleep time…. What hooked me though, and what I think would hook any reader, no matter their genre preference, is the witty, fun and genuine dialogue…. Scott’s Jane is the kind of woman most men would love to meet some day. She is strong, witty, kind and intelligent…. She is one of the more enjoyable characters I have read in literature in some time.
