Re: You liked the Jane-Austen-is-a-vampire book?

You know its very light on Vampirism in my opinion.

I mean there is the "I can't date because he's going to start asking questions why I stay 40 forever." aspect that Jane worries about and whether its possible for her to tell people that she is a vampire.

But really the vampirism is just a conceit I think to get Jane Austen into the modern age of the cult of Jane Austen.

Its there and its prevalent throughout the book but I view the book far more as a "Jane Austen faces the modern age where no one actually cares about *her* anymore" book than a "Jane Austen is a VAMPIRE" book

In conclusion its far more chicklit snark than vampire fiction. (IMO)

And even if its too vampiric for you I think based on something you typed that you'd enjoy it regardless smiling smiley
