Publisher's Summary

Lady Susan is a short, epistolary novel by Jane Austen. Lady Susan Vernon is a selfish, attractive, and unscrupulous woman, who tries to trap the best possible husband while maintaining a relationship with a married man. As a widow, she seeks a match for herself, as well as husband-hunting for her daughter. Lady Susan is not only beautiful but intelligent and witty; she's highly attractive to men and her suitors are always significantly younger. Inspired by Les Liaisons Dangereuses, and written in a similar form, Lady Susan is one of Jane Austen's earliest finished works. In it, she reveals all the caustic wit and brilliant social satire of her later novellas.

Good narration. Mediocre story.

This novel, written when Jane Austen was just twenty, is only for hardcore fans who have already read everything else that Austen wrote. It is written as an exchange of letters between various people. I found it quite difficult to follow who the various parties were, who was writing to whom, etc. Finally, I picked up the book and read the text. Having done that, it became a pleasure to listen to.
