Lady Susan (by Jane Austen)

I'd never read it! It's a very short epistolary novella about this essentially horrifying bitch named Lady Susan, and her romantic exploits on her own behalf and on behalf of her daughter. When it was over, I was disappointed. It definitely ends too soon; a lot of action is stuffed in the epilogue. The characters are wonderful, the writing is witty; basically, it's Jane Austen, who is charming, and if you haven't read it, you should read it. It will not take long!

I listened to this one on audio a while ago and really liked it, although it does not feel like Jane Austen, really. The audiobook was the sort that usually irritates me -- multiple narrators -- but it worked fine for this book.
