This book by Sybil Brinton is based on multiple characters from Austen's novels. The audio narration was fine but the circa early 1900s fan-fiction story was lacking something. The character of Lizzie (Elizabeth Bennett) is central to this story, but she didn't come across with the same dry wit portrayed within Austen's Pride and Prejudice. I'd recommend reading all of Austen's original novels first before tackling this one, otherwise the story will be really confusing.

Overall Rating: 3.5 stars
Recommended to: Jane Austen fans

Considered the first “fan“ Austen novel as well as pastiche, I enjoyed the attempt by Brinton to include most every main/minor character from all of Austen's novels. However, there were a ton of characters to keep track of, and some were only mentioned briefly. I also found Kitty to be a brat and not remotely ready to fall in love. Still, I loved reading with my bookclub group!

People who are looking for a sequel with lots of Darcy and Elizabeth banter will probably be disappointed, but otherwise, this was a fun book. It was the first published Austen sequel, written in 1913, and the author took characters from all of Jane Austen's novels and imagined new romances and mischief for the ones who were left unmarried in the originals. For the most part, I liked what she did with the characters, and it was a delightful story in the spirit of a Jane Austen novel. My only complaint is that the beginning seemed jumbled, with some awkward dialogue, but once the plot got going, it was an enjoyable read.… (mais)

A sequel that includes many of the characters from all of Austen's finished works. Though concentrating on the Darcys, the Colonel, and Kitty Bennet who still is as foolish. Elizabeth still can't sketch a character as she befriends Mary Crawford. I disliked her pairing, as she is totally unworthy of him, and how strange that in a sequel only four of the Bennet daughters were mentioned.
Enjoyable enough, though I can't imagine reading it again.
