"'Bringing together Jane Austen's most beloved characters and storylines—a clever, playful, interactive, and highly entertaining approach to the wildly popular novels in which you, the reader, decide the outcome.'
Name: Elizabeth Bennet.
Mission: To marry both prudently and for love.
How? It's entirely up to the reader.
The journey begins in Pride and Prejudice but quickly takes off on a whimsical Austen adventure of the reader's own creation. A series of choices leads the reader into the plots and romances of Austen's other works. Choosing to walk home from Netherfield Hall means falling into Sense and Sensibility and the infatuating spell of Mr. Willoughby. Accepting an invitation to Bath leads to Northanger Abbey and the beguiling Henry Tilney. And just where will Emma's Mr. Knightley fit in to the quest for a worthy husband? It's all up to the reader.
A labyrinth of love and lies, scandals and scoundrels, misfortunes and marriages, Lost in Austen will delight and challenge any Austen lover."

My first story turned out to be quite short. I got into a fight with a group of gypsies, lost all my beauty for ever and with that lost all chances of a promising marriage.
I will try again...
My second story ends with my death. I broke my neck at the Netherfield Ball :-(
I will try again and my list of failings is growing, my intelligents is decreasing quickly only my confidince seems to get bigger... doesn't sound like a happy end yet...
I will not talk about my third end. But if you do not tell anyboby, well I comitted a major crime...

I finished the book last week. But than I wondered why I did not have a chance to fall in love with colonel Brandon and went on reading. Unfortunately I fell in love with Willoughby instead which seemed a bit unusual for me ;-)
My favorite ends were the one where I got shot by Lady Chathrine and the one where I was locked in an attic by Fanny Price so that all the other heroines might get a chance,

Thank you for this ring, I had lots of fun reading it :-)
Just in case some of you do not know, I do have a lot of Austen-Spin-Offs. Rings are linked on my profile.

Journal Entry 6 by wingTrinibellwing at Calw, Baden-Württemberg Germany on Tuesday, November 28, 2017
Ich hab's nun drei Mal versucht, mich in die Geschichten einzulesen, aber entweder bin ich viel zu wenig Austen-Fan (ich kann nur wenige ihre Charaktere auswendig den entsprechenden Büchern zuordnen) oder es war einfach nie die passende Zeit oder Ruhe oder ich zuviel erwartet oder zuwenig oder wasweiß. Jedenfalls hab ich bei jedem Versuch mehr geblättert als gelesen , kurz ich konnte mit dem Buch einfach nix anfangen. Meine Mitleserin ist anderweitig ausgelastet, daher darf das Buch nun morgen zu nächsten Leserin weiterreisen.

Trotzdem Danke, dass ich das Projekt "make your own Jane Austen novel" kennenlernen durfte.

Journal Entry 7 by Colombina at Wuppertal, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany on Friday, December 08, 2017

Gestern schon gut angekommen, vielen lieben Dank! Was für eine schöne Gestaltung, ich freue mich schon sehr auf dieses Leseabenteuer. Ich hatte diesen Sommer das Glück, eine Jane-Austen-Hörspiel-Kollektion der BBC hören zu können - mal sehen, ob das meine Chancen, heil durch die Geschichten zu kommen, steigern wird oder ob ich wieder gleich ermordet werde, wie bei meinem letzten Spielbuch ...

3th January: Well, I was not actually murdered on my first attempt but I ended up disfigured and without a hope of ever finding a husband which seems to me a rather grim outlook, if not an equivalent to being murdered, in the marriage-crazy society poor Jane Austen had to live in... (Always such a failure in create-your-own-adventure books, I sometimes wonder how I manage to get on the real world.) Merrily I carried on, taking different paths through the book but at some point I really got exhausted with all the marriage pressure and abandoned it. I liked, however, the humour of Emma Campbell Webster very much (for example on p. 10: "Your mother is so anxious to marry you all off that she may very well kill you in the process. Deduct 10 Fortune points for having such a negligent mother." :-)).
