The Heroine's Bookshelf: Life Lessons, from Jane Austen to Laura Ingalls Wilder

The Heroine's Bookshelf: Life Lessons, from Jane Austen to Laura Ingalls Wilder - Erin Blakemore I suspect that I am not the target audience for this book. I've read most of the books mentioned, and I love literary criticism. So why did it fall flat? To be perfectly frank, I'm not looking for "life lessons learned from Jane Eyre.". The biographical info was decent, though it wasn't new to me. The literary analysis was fine, but not terribly deep. But the bit in each chapter with the moral (so to speak) seemed a bit trite. I might recommend this for teens looking to read some classics. Jane Eyre is my favorite book, so I approve of anything that sends young people that direction!
