There's a reason this was priced so cheaply given that there were 3 stories in this collection. I read the first tale which was average, I skipped numerous sections in the second story, then refused to finish it as the writing style was so dire
I was too disappointed to bother with the final tale. A real waste of time and money in my opinion.

I wasn't sure I would like this but I bought it anyway as a back up for my holiday, just in case I ran out of things to read. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the three stories. I found them very readable, true to what I remember of Austen's original in that there were, for me, no jarring moments where the stories (original Austen and these) seriously conflicted. Others may not agree, it is many years since I read Austen, but all in all I enjoyed the books, I was happy to spend time reading them.
