From Amazon

Collected together in one volume, The Complete Novels show the development of Austen as a writer and social commentator.

Review

Eight hours longer even than Naxos' complete Sherlock Holmes, this has got to be the audiobook box set of the decade! All six complete major novels are read here in mellifluous and engagingly vital voices which - however many times you listen - instantly draw you into Jane Austen's world. - Rachel Redford, The Observer Together for the first time, the complete and unabridged audio recordings of Jane Austen's novels handsomely presented in a boxed set. Counting 69 CDs and running over 83 hours, this is the Holy Grail of Austen audio book recording as only Naxos could present with superb readings by Juliet Stevenson, Emilia Fox, and Anna Bentinck. Included are Austen's six major novels, the novella Lady Susan and her unfinished novels Sanditon and The Watsons. This is definitely the essential collector's item. 'Nuff said! - Laurel Ann, austenprose.wordpress.com Top of the boxed sets is Jane Austen: The Complete Novels, read by Juliet Stevenson, Emilia Fox and Anna Bentinck, flaunting alongside the favourites of television drama the less-familiar Northanger Abbey and Lady Susan. - Carole Mansur, Telegraph

4.0 out of 5 stars Good novels, but too heavy. Dec 4 2002
Format:Hardcover
I love Jane Austen and of course all the novels contained in this set are fantastic. However, if you really love Jane Austen I recommend just getting your favorite novels separately. This book is so large and unwieldy that I kept having to quit reading because the only comfortable way to read it is if you are not holding it up. It's kind of a pain, to be honest. But content and price-wise, this is a great collection.

1.0 out of 5 stars Commentary Regarding Quality of Book July 10 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This review is regarding the quality of the 1994 hardcover edition published by Grammercy. I ordered this edition several weeks ago and was extremely disappointed to find it was poor quality. The binding is acceptable when new but after a week of light use, I already noticed deterioration on the front binding. Actually the binding is so poor that, if not careful, you could easily tear some of the front pages out. The paper quality is cheap and is the same used for mass media paperbacks expect slightly thinner. Overall, I was so dissatisfied with this edition that I returned it.
However, I would also like to make a recommendation. After returning the book, I was still looking for collection of Austen's works and happened to find a 1995 hardcover edition of this exact book by Grammercy. The edition costs five dollars more but the quality is ten times better. The book has a faux leather cover with gold trimmed pages and a ribbon bookmark. The paper quality in thin but polished, smoother and more refined. The binding is very durable and I have noticed no deterioration yet after a week of use.
If I had to a chance to redo my purchases, I would have skipped this edition completely and ordered the 1995 edition. If your interested in this edition, it can be found using search under ISBN # 0517147688

5.0 out of 5 stars WOOOOOOW! April 30 2008
Format:Leather Bound
Best deal I have come across as of yet on Amazon.ca and Amazon.com
Can't get over the value. This is a beautiful leather bound book that has 7 novels combined into one. It can easily become a family heirloom just by its beauty, let alone for the materpieces inside!

Recommended!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Editing April 4 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I love Jane Austen. But this edition is full of spelling and text errors. Words that run together. Context that was not checked. These are annoying. The editor clearly didn't do his or her job. I was very disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery May 16 2010
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Roughcut
Jane Austen. Her name is practically synonymous with classic, understated romance, as well as comedies of manners with a subtle, sly sense of humor.

And Austen's "The Complete Novels" brings together the full complement of Austen's finished novels, from the little-known "Lady Susan" to the classic bestseller "Pride and Prejudice" (and everything in between). This collection is flled with lovably flawed heroines, beautiful formal prose, and some rather unconventional love stories.

"Pride and Prejudice" become a problem when Elizabeth Bennett takes a dislike to the handsome, aloof Mr. Darcy -- and her prejudice against him builds after he sabotages her sister's love match, and the charming Wickham drops some shocking claims about Darcy's nastiness. But the facts are very different -- and when scandal hits the Bennett family, Darcy may be their only hope. And "Sense and Sensibility" clash when the two very different Dashwood sisters, smart Elinor and romantic Marianne, both fall in love -- one with a man she can't have, and the other with a guy who may be horribly unsuitable.

Anne Elliott has a problem with "Persuasion," since she was once engaged to the impoverished sailor Frederick Wentworth, but was persuaded to break it off. Now he's returned from war as a wealthy hero... and Anne still loves him. "Mansfield Park" is the backdrop for shy Fanny's life with her rich relatives, who usually treat her as a servant -- except for her kindly cousin, Edmund. But when the flirtatious, fashionable Crawfords arrive in the neighborhood, it unbalances the lives of everyone at Mansfield Park.

5.0 out of 5 stars TERRIFIC! Nov. 16 2001
Format:Hardcover
I received this book as a Christmas present a year ago. I must say, it now one of the most treasured books in my collection. It is a terrific compilation of Jane Austen's books, and it have so very wonderful pictures. The print is east to read and the binding is great. This book should last the owner a lifetime, and beyond. It would be great for any lover of Austen, or just of books in general.

When you purchase a book entitled Complete Novels of Jane Austen (all under one cover), common sense would dictate that the print is going to be VERY small! Read more

Great price, took a bit of time to arrive but not outside of the estimation. Got misdirected to a neighbour along the way but that was more about my wacky mailman...
