Book Review
Austen's last book had an interesting mixture of high and low points to me.  While I appreciated the fact that the protagonists were older and not in the first bloom of youth, and enjoyed the more biting tone of Austen's satire and sarcasm, the plot was relatively simple and straightforward and the characters were flatter and not as easily distinguishable as those of her earlier works.  Fans of Austen should read and will likely enjoy this book, although they may wonder what could have been if Austen had lived long enough to give it her characteristic polish in revisions.
