Review of the Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen

The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen by Syrie James

My review


rating: 4 of 5 stars
Being a lazy reader, I’ve only actually read one Jane Austin novel. That would be Emma and to finish it I had to make myself read one chapter per night until I was done AND I consulted Cliff Notes because I kept getting confused as to which character was which. I’ve attempted to read Pride and Prejudice several times without success. I just don’t like to work hard at reading, people.

This book was fun, because I got to read in the style of Jane Austin without working so hard. The premise is that a chest was found sealed in the wall and in it contain the lost memoirs of Jane Austin. As we read we learn of the man she met at the shore and what happened because of their meeting.

  1. You know that this one is going in my goodreads “to read” file! -S

    And, Patty, really, Emma was work? Too bad, it is kind of a charming no-it-all book that is fun. And no P & P? Such a shame! 🙂 I say that fully understanding what you mean. As you saw in my review of the last book I read of hers…I kept thinking, who just said that? Which character was that? She is a little spare with her use of pronouns and names when in conversation. So, no real criticism from this Austen-ite. -S
