For my Austen I read Pride and Prejudice in school because I had to, and it has left a bad taste, so I never returned to Austen – even though I know everyone loves the books. I wasn’t really looking forward to Lady Susan, but I was actually very pleasantly surprised by this little novella that she wrote when she was very young.
Lady Susan is manipulating and scheming and a character you love to hate, all of which you get to know from a bunch of letters. I thought this was very entertaining (much more than when I read Pride and Prejudice for school at least).
