Edward Rutherfurd has written several great books set in England. My favorites include Sarum and London. Both are great books--very long books--but very interesting.

Originally Answered: Is it more difficult learning to read Chinese, or Japanese? Which language is the hardest to read?
Manadrin Chinese uses simplified Chinese, which is different than what Japan uses.
Cantonese Chinese uses the same kind of kanji that Japan does. There are some differences, but it's mostly the same.
Also, Chinese letters have the same reading every time, unlike how Kanji are read in Japanese.
They're both pretty difficult and I'm not sure which is easier. Arabic or Thai are pretty hard languages to learn to read from what I hear.
Jane Austen is terrific, and one of the best authors of all English literature - I found Jane Eyre to be dry and dull in comparison. Pride & Prejudice is delightful.
Of course, there's always Charles Dickens; he's got plot twists to rival any most inventive soap opera and some of the most compelling characters ever created. Plus, he's wonderfully funny in that dry British style. Start with "A Tale of Two Cities" or "David Copperfield" - I know it looks huge buts it's very engaging.
If you want something a little more ancient, try Arthurian legends. T.H White's "Once and Future King" is funny, eay-to-read, and brilliant; Marion Zimmer Bradley's "The Mists of Avalon" takes a mystical perspective on the women crucial to the legend.

For more English literature, there's always Emily Bronte since you've already read her sister Charlotte. You may want to consider Emma or Pride and Prejudice, written by Jane Austen, which deals with 18th century England. Of course you must try Charles Dickens, Great Expectations or A Tale of Two Cities, again 18th century England. For American literature that follows along the same stylistic vein, you may want to try The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald.
But my personal favorite is the Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas. It's one of the best books ever written in my opinion. It's set in 18th century France and has so many plots, subplots, and nuances that anyone is bound to love it. Lots of French historical references, so you definitely want to get a good translation.

Change it up a bit! If you have a darker sense of humor, check out a novel by Chuck Palahniuk. He's the guy who wrote the novel Fight Club before it was adapted into a movie. I recommend Choke and/or Survivor. Enjoy!

I LOVE Jane Eyre!!!! I think that you should read Pride and Prejudice, Northanger Abbey, Sense and Sensibility, and don't forget anything by Charles Dickens! Good luck!

Some good english authors:
L.M Montgomery- of the "Anne of green gables" fame. classic reading
Georgette heyer- stories set in the regency period. much lighter & humerous than jane austen but enjoyable all the same.
L.M Alcott- not sure, might be american but good books
Stories by Saki- sure you'll like them
And of course, a must read-Gone with the wind
