Petkus does a marvelous job providing the disembodied Jane with a strong voice and a real personality–she can be funny, sympathetic, weary, egotistical, petty, loving, engaging, and wise in the way that only someone who has been a keen observer of life for the past 200+ years can be.
Fellow Denver-Boulder JASNA member Janet Smith has been exceedingly kind to post her review of Jane, Actually at her blog. And she’s giving away two paperbacks and two ebooks, so just leave a comment. And while you’re at it, check out my review of Jane’s book Intimations of Austen, or just take my word for it and buy it at Amazon. Jane has been reading Austen a lot longer than I have and her understanding shows.
