Best used as a reminder of why you loved her books in the first place. Save your time and just grab your favourite for a re-read.
I deliberately tried to make the wrong choice, just to see where it would take Elizabeth. It's pretty much a recap of Pride & Prejudice & other Austen works, so I pretty much skimmed through the text.
a true fan of Jane Austen must not dare miss reading this one! =)
As long as you don't take it seriously, you will enjoy this book. An adult choose-your-own-adventure, Austen style. A fun read, but you should make the wrong choices as much as possible- otherwise it's just a Pride and Prejudice recap. Takes you into Austen's other works as well.
Your name: Elizabeth Bennett. Your mission: Marry for love and money. Your means: Nothing more than your wit and charm, of course, and a handy book called Lost in Austen. In the grand tradition of both Jane Austen and those old Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books from your youth, author Emma Campbell Webster brings us a romantic adventure that combines the two. You begin firmly rooted in Pride and Prejudice; a few twists and turns can land you in the city of Bath à la Persuasion, win you a stay in the mansions of Northanger Abbey and Mansfield Park, and bring you into contact with rogues like Sense and Sensibility?s Mr. Willoughby or dreamboats like Emma?s Mr. Knightley. Mr. Darcy is the ultimate catch, of course, and the goal is harder than you think?you win and lose points based on your decisions that add or subtract to your various charms and therefore your eligibility as a suitable match. Whether you end up happily ever after with Captain Wentworth or get sent north in disgrace with Mr. Wickham, Lost in Austen is fantastic fun, and certainly one of the most creative ways to channel the magnificent Jane Austen, who is surely spinning in her grave at the inventiveness of this latest reincarnation of her ever-popular work.
