Terrence Hill and Steve Chandler had finished their books discussing Moby Dick and obituaries and were deciding what to do next when their wives stepped in and offered them the challenge of Jane Austen. They expected to have a good time making fun of her work, so they took it on, reading Pride and Prejudice and Mansfield Park. Of course, they loved the books.
Two Guys Read Jane Austen is not serious scholarship, just pure fun. It is two friends writing back and forth chatting about a book they are reading together. They discuss the parts they love and argue over details. They tend to wander off topic, which just makes it more fun. I didn’t agree with everything they said, but it is impossible to resist the feeling of joining in a light-hearted discussion about my favorite author.
Austen scholar or interested novice alike will find this a delightful read.
