Pleasant Jane Austen rip off
on March 21, 2014
Ms. Holt has not reinvented the wheel she copied our beloved Ms. Austen's. The book is laid out as a series of letters from Elinor Cowper to her sister Charlotte. It incorporates quotes from Jane Austen to her sister Charlotte as well as incorporating many characters and scenarios from various Jane Austen novels.
The tone of the letters includes those details which make Jane Austen's novels so enjoyable. Witty conversations, attention to the details of every day life, and gossip from the neighborhood.
All this being said it's an enjoyable read but predictable to those who can recognize Austen's characters in the letters.
