Nice idea but ...,
This review is from: Mr Knightley's Diary (Paperback)
It's an interesting conceit but that's not enough to sustain a whole book.
There isn't really much effort on the part of the author to recreate the flavour of Austen's prose or match her Mr Knightley's character to Austen's. He has a very abrupt change of mind late on in the book when he decides his interest in Emma is more than brotherly whereas my reading of Austen is that he knew much sooner than that but was waiting for her to notice and reciprocate.
