So I'm reading the Jane Austen Book Club, and it's awesome. If you've ever seen the movie The Age of Innocence, it's kinda like that. The book takes place in our time, but the storyteller describes everything and every person with such flair and flourish, like in the movie. You can close your eyes and imagine the movie, just by listening to the voice over.
Here's an example from the book. Jocelyn is one of the characters, and she's hosting the first book club meeting. So the storyteller is describing Jocelyn's porch, where they will be discussing Emma.

"Jocelyn had two potable heaters going, and the porch hummed cozily. There were Indian rugs and Spanish-tile floors of a red that might hide dog hair, depending on the breed. There were porcelain lamps in the shape of ginger jars, round and Oriental, and with none of the usual dust on the bulbs, because it was Jocelyn's house. The lamps were on timers. When it was sufficiently dark out, at the perfect moment, they would snap on all at once like a choir. This hadn't happened yet, but we were looking forward to it. Maybe someone would be saying something brilliant."
