The continuation by Another, however, is functional at best. It lacks sparkle; the language and the evocation of social milieu do not ring true; and many well-drawn characters, notably Tom Musgrave, transform beyond recognition. Other characters lose their nuance, becoming either all good or all bad. All of this surprises me because Another was a Jane Austen scholar who ought to have been better equipped than most continuators to avoid these pitfalls.
Jane Austen's own writing here (chapters 1 to 5) is Austen at her best, and deserves to be read. Readers will be disappointed, however, if they do more than skim the remainder of the book.
