Let's see what the critics think about The Complete Works of Jane Austen, Abridged...

Jillian Ashley Blair Ivey, BroadStreetReview.com: The Complete Works may borrow its title and general format from The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), but it is wholly, and charmingly, original. I quite honestly couldn't stop smiling.

Toby Zinman, The Philadelphia Inquirer: The script provides glimpses from time to time of profound interpretations of these often ironical fictions where society and its values are held up to a very bright light. Things go sideways only twice: There is a jarring Dungeons & Dragons interlude that makes no real sense, and the awkward declaration of loving friendship between Northeast and Bedford seems forced and tacked-on.
