What I've Read: Lady Susan by Jane Austen

This is probably the shortest Jane Austen novel I've ever read, and honestly the only one I really wasn't fond of! Lady Susan is an epistolary novel, in which Lady Susan is attempting to gain a second marriage for herself by imposing herself into London for the season while also trying to set up her daughter. Lady Susan was just an unlikeable character and I found myself fuming at her scheming. I don't know, I'm a bit flabbergasted as I am a huge Jane Austen fan. Maybe if I read it again it will be better? I didn't mind the fact that it was told in letters, it was purely the story. Have you ever had that happen, when you really love an author and you just don't like one of their books even though you really want to?
