This review is from: The Watsons (Paperback)
I´ve never written a review, but I HAD to review this book--it is just awesome. Like many Janeites, I wish she would have left us with many, many more novels than she did, and have been yearning for books that take off on or complete her work while emulating her style. There are plenty of books out there attempting this, but I have found most of them disappointing. Well, not this one. As another reviewer remarked, it is difficult to tell where Austen´s original manuscript ends and the new material starts--the author has done a magnificent job adopting both Austen´s language and her style of setting and advancing plot, her ability to sketch character, her subtle humour, etc. I just loved this book, and only wished it would have been three times as long (as it was, I read it in one sitting). Highly, highly recommended!!
