P.D. James has written a mystery with the Austen characters that is believable and easily read compared to the original Austen novels. James captures the tone of the Austen novels with the character's personalities and dialogues and throws a mystery in for fun.

I admire the effort to stay true to the original author, but was it really necessary to duplicate the paragraph-long run-on sentences that the English writers of the period were soooo addicted to?

Picked up at the November meeting. I've seen the miniseries already, so we'll see how they did!

Released 2 yrs ago (1/9/2016 UTC) at Cravings Market Restaurant in Calgary, Alberta Canada

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Taking to the January meet up for the "Queens and Knights" theme - though I have included kings and earls and ladies and such in my reading of this theme! I saw the movie first but there were a couple of changes from the book that it was still surprising and quite enjoyable!

Journal Entry 11 by Eri-Cherry at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Saturday, July 14, 2018

7 out of 10

Definitely was impressed that the author kept things in the appropriate writing style for Pride & Prejudice. Some interpretations I didn't quite agree with, but otherwise it was interesting as a whole. They repeated quite a bit before getting to the truth of the mystery. It was a bit of a shame that there wasn't a real investigation which lead to the truth coming up, but more of a bit of random luck that revealed the truth.

Thanks for the interesting read.
