I'm not sure why I'm posting this book review

The Jane Austen Book ClubThe Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I'm not sure why this book was an international bestseller and made into a movie.
It was a pretty so-so read, with me being distracted on and off. The part of the book I really liked was the e-mail exchange between Grigg's sisters (I've already forgotten their surname) about Grigg falling in love.
I think what annoyed me most was the universal "we" used throughout the book and not actually finding out who the narrator was. Or maybe I'm just to obtuse to deduct it.
