"Stories by: Lauren Willig, Adriana Trigiani, Jo Beverley, Alexandra Potter, Laurie Viera Rigler, Frank Delaney & Diane Meier, Syrie James, Stephanie Barron, Amanda Grange, Pamela Aidan, Elizabeth Aston, Carrie Bebris, Diana Birchall, Monica Fairview, Janet Mullany, Jane Odiwe, Beth Pattillo, Myretta Robens, Jane Rubino and Caitlen Rubino-Bradway, Maya Slater, Margaret C. Sullivan, and the winner of a story contest hosted by the Republic of Pemberley website. "My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." If you just heaved a contented sigh at Mr. Darcy's heartfelt words, then you, dear reader, are in good company. Here is a delightful collection of never-before-published stories inspired by Jane Austen--her novels, her life, her wit, her world. In Lauren Willig's "A Night at Northanger," a young woman who doesn't believe in ghosts meets a familiar specter at the infamous abbey; Jane Odiwe's "Waiting" captures the exquisite uncertainty of Persuasion's Wentworth and Anne as they await her family's approval of their betrothal; Adriana Trigiani's "Love and Best Wishes, Aunt Jane" imagines a modern-day Austen giving her niece advice upon her engagement; in Diana Birchall's "Jane Austen's Cat," our beloved Jane tells her nieces "cat tales" based on her novels; Laurie Viera Rigler's "Intolerable Stupidity" finds Mr. Darcy bringing charges against all the writers of Pride and Prejudice sequels, spin-offs, and retellings; in Janet Mullany's "Jane Austen, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!" a teacher at an all-girls school invokes the Beatles to help her students understand Sense and Sensibility; and in Jo Beverley's "Jane and the Mistletoe Kiss," a widow doesn't believe she'll have a second chance at love. until a Miss Austen suggests otherwise. Regency or contemporary, romantic or fantastical, each of these marvelous stories reaffirms the incomparable influence of one of history's most cherished authors. Look for special features inside.

Most short story collecitons end up being a bit of a mixed bag, this is more moxed than most. They are all short stories about, inspired by or generally riffin on the themes and narratives of Jane Austen's life and works. And while some of them are inventive and well constructed, others are, frankly, dire.
I fail to understand how an author can set a contemporary novel and still have a woman as being worthless without a man in her life. It's backward and outdated. I don't claim to see eye to eye with Austen, but I think she was a sufficiently shrewd observer of the world to not be stuck in an outdated attitude to marriage and a woman's place in society.
The other gripe is that there are too many that seem to think that just because she wrote Elizabeth as being able to move into Darcey's life and sphere that Janer, herself, hob nobbed with the nobility. I think it highly unlikely.
So, having got the grim out the way, onto the good. The best of the bunch was the one that had Jane meeting her own creations and finding out that what she'd intended wasn't always how the characters themselves felt about the role they had been alloted. There couple of Jane ghost stories were fun enough and the re-enactment of Persuassion had a lot of merit.
But for the few good ideas, I'm not sure it was worth ploughing through the rest of it.
I listened to this and one of the narrators had the most bizzarre accent. Avon being pronounced as Ah von, not Ay-von being just the easiest to type. I have no idea of her origin, but it was entirely offputting throiughout.
In short, unless you are a died in the wool Jane Austen devottee, give this lot a miss. ( )

Some of these stories are based on Austen's books, some on her life; some are romances, some mysteries, some fantasies. Nearly all enjoyable for Janeites who aren't purists. ( )

Entertaining but uneven collection. ( )

Jane Austen fans will be disappointed. There were a few stories that I got lost in, and truly reached the Austen fan in me. However, so many of the stories barely mentioned Jane Austen or her works other than in a superficial manner. I would skip this one since there are so many other great books based on Jane Austen's work. ( )

Quite simply, this is a collection of short stories all inspired by Jane Austen. Some are set in Jane Austen’s time, some are set in the present day, some are set in a fantasy world. As can only be expected with such a collection, and with such a varying range of writing styles, some are far more enjoyable than others and preferences will probably differ from reader to reader.

My favourites were the ones with a touch of humour, and – surprisingly for me because I am a big Austen fan – I preferred the ones set in the present day.

My favourites were Jane Austen’s Nightmare by Syrie James (where Austen meets several of her characters who berate her for her treatment of them through her writing); ‘Jane Austen, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!’ by Janet Mullany (where several contemporary schoolgirls learn lessons about love and life through discovering Austen’s works), and ‘The Love Letter’ by Brenna Aubrey.

Most of the others were enjoyable enough if not particularly memorable for me, although there were a couple I unfortunately did not like at all – ‘Jane Austen’s Cat’ by Diana Birchall just seemed extremely silly, and ‘The Chase’ by Carrie Bebris, while obviously well researched (it is based on an incident in the Navy career of Austen’s brother Francis) also did not work for me. However as mentioned before, such opinions are of course completely subjective.

Overall, if you have an interest in Jane Austen or her characters, I’d recommend giving this book a try. And as it is a collection of stand-alone stories, it’s one you can easily dip in and out of. ( )
