5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!, 8 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Importance of Being Emma (Darcy & Friends) (Paperback)
Jane Austen in the 21st Century this certainly is
I loved this book. I read it realy quickly for me.
I love the fact that we get to know Mark's (Mr Knightley. In a interview I read the author changed his name so that it flowed better which I like) feelings as well as Emma's.
Emma's witty, clever, sexy, young and know's what she wants.
Mark's charming, romantic, and brotherly who cares for Emma.
Ms Archer has really moderninsed the book with: the creation of the rival buisinesses, the fact that Mark has been away in India for years, John and Isabella are still as funny as ever and Gusty (Mrs Elton), Philip (Mr Elton), Harriet, Batty (Miss Bates) and Henry (Mr Woodhouse)are completely rediculous. With the more gentle characters of Tom and Kate Weston (Mr Weston and Mrs Anne Weston nee Taylor) and Jane Fairfax seeping through.
But really it's all about Emma and Mark. I won't give too much away but he's a mentor with a slightly different agenda, two hot and steamy nights in hotel rooms and a really romantic declaration of love at the end. Who doesn't think that rain is romantic?
I love that all the chapters are named after recipes like 'Gentleman's Relish, Pure Honey, Stuffing, Hot Cross Buns, Summer Pudding and Cold Turkey'
The 'Digestif' is a beautiful way to finish of the novel it rounds it all ups and mentions the famous 'Highbury Humper'
The book is Emma but it doesn't feel like Emma it fells as though it's a standalone novel which I love.
Ms Archer Miss Austen would be proud!
I can't wait for Persuade Me.
