Jane, an manager of an American company in Japan this year, she wanted to get well along with these Japanese colleges and know them more formally. So she invited them to her house for party. The colleges all arrived at 8 o'clock pm as she had told them and they seemed to enjoy the party, they danced, sang, and ate most of the food.But at about 10 o'clock pm, one of the colleges said to her, "I think it's time for me to leave. Thank you very much for the party, it's wonderful, I like it." Then all the other colleges stood up and said they wanted to go home, too. So they all left at the same time.

1505 words - 6 pages , Austen shows the danger of becoming immersed in reading and its ability to hinder the judgment between fact and fiction. Reading is a dominant theme throughout the novel, as in both the reading of the gothic novel and the reading of a person's character. When these two notions clash, the reader is forced to decide which activity holds more importance.
