What a journey! Jane is a character that will never leave my head now. An utter role model. So beautifully written, albeit a bit over the top, but that perfectly conveys a complex character. There is so much to analyse in the characters and plot. Strangeness yet beauty. And Thandie Newton is exceptional. She captures Jane's intelligence and strength of will in a way I think few could've honoured.

Urgh SO amazing

Rosamund's performance is impeccable and I've listened to a few Austen audiobooks... they seldom have good readers but this was BEAUTIFULLY done. I'm so in love with the story. I'll never get tired of it. I just want to dive in and live in the book.

literally ruined my day, in the best way

Stayed up until 4:30am to listen, struggled everytime my timer ended and just couldn't resist pressing play again. Next day was ruined except that I had the comfort of the second half of the book to distract me. Haven't gotten lost like this in a book for years

Interesting content, worthwhile for any generation to read in order to better understand iGens. As an Australian reading it, most of it applied to Aus iGens too but some of it was purely for the American audience. Just really heavy on the data... Might be a better read in hardcopy... you can skip boring (albeit necessary) data but also highlight and annotate key points.

Should be required reading for every sapien

Narrator was perfect, felt like an engaing podcast, never needed to rewind to clarify. This book is the foundation upon which to build any other academic, philosophical or personal enquiries. It puts everything into perspective.
