    [The Jane Austen Project] EBOOK / KINDLE I found the main character completely uninteresting and kind of unlikable Why were people falling in love with her all over the place? Why did Jane Austen like her so much? Why in the heck would she have been chosen for the mission in the first

review The Jane Austen Project

review The Jane Austen Project The Jane Austen Project Free download ↠ 5 Ly trained by The Royal Institute for Special Topics in Physics disaster relief doctor Rachel and actor turned scholar Liam have little in common except their extraordinary circumstances Circumstances that call for Rachel to stifle her independent nature and let Liam take the lead as they infiltrate Austen’s circle via her favorite brother Henry But diagnosing Jane’s fatal illness and obtaining an unpublished novel hi. The Jane Austen Project is a pretty entertaining read on the whole very solid if unspectacular for fans of Jane Austen Regency England and time travel books that focus little on the science and on the experience I d give 3 stars exactly I should start by saying though I ve read Longbourn enjoyed on the whole though it had an extremely different tone and sensibility to Austen novels and also gave it three stars and plan to read Eligible A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice in general I don t gravitate towards Austen adaptations or extensions her novels are always pretty neatly wrapped and if I want to re create my emotional reaction to Anne Elliott s eventual triumph after her life of undeserved slights and constant seemingly unreuited love for Captain Wentworth in Persuasion my personal favorite Austen novel well I ll just re read Persuasion I think fans of Austen and fans of Austen continuationsre tellings would both enjoy this novel and perhaps critiue different elements of the plot and set upIt took me a bit to get into it the exposition is a bit rocky as Flynn needs to introduce the characters their home time and how they will get set up as respectable people in 1815 and the future world is hazily sketched at that point Once I pushed past the opening and the characters and therefore me as the reader were fully immersed in London society the book whizzed by The basic premise is well stated from the blurb two time travelers Rachel and Liam from an unspecified future time enter England in 1815 with a mission objective of securing Jane Austen s lost novel The Watsons The objective changes somewhat as Rachel and Liam become acuainted with the family until their directive to leave the future intact clashes with their desire to save Jane Henry and other figures major and minor The underlying and later explicitly stated concern is that if they make any changes however subtle either their future will change in inconceivable ways or they ll never be able to return marooned from their home time But there s also a part of both characters that ask if they even want to return or live out their lives in Regency England While I felt that the beginning was a bit slow to set up the conceit the ending somewhat abrupt and the mechanics and details of the future world and time travel only lightly explained and covered the middle sections in which Rachel and Liam assume their identities as Mary and William Ravenswood and interact with various members of the Austen family are fun interesting and share some of the same sharp social observation that Jane Austen s novels commonly exhibited Action moves from the city of London to the bucolic Hampshire and Chawton House echoing the towncountry split settings of other Austen novelsFlynn did a fantastic job in my opinion of imaging Jane Austen both as a critical character that is the whole reason for the story but also a strong and seemingly authentic take on a beloved but not deeply well known real life literary figure Her Jane both supports and subverts the portrait her family created for her after her death smart witty complicated constrained by her times but also fully of them easy to trace her most enduring heroines to portions of her personality but being far multi faceted than her fictional creations Because her Jane really worked for me the main body of the novel also worked for me and I found myself truly interested in the developing friendship between RachelMary and JaneFlynn also takes part of the traditional Austen marriage plot and adds it to her storyline as well Rachel as Mary Ravenswood attracts the interest of Jane s brother Henry and their attraction and Henry s friendship with LiamWilliam help to develop relations with Jane Cassandra and the rest of the Austen family In some ways it can be a little repetitive and not always as well done as in the original Austen works secret engagement family scandal financial ruin But it wouldn t be Austen without our heroine further examining her own thoughts feelings and beliefs and arriving at new ideas about herself during the course of said marriage plot and the dual foils of Henry and Liam serve to do that for Rachel The progression of both love stories makes sense relative to the larger plot and to Austen and I liked how Flynn could compare the traditional courtship of Regency England with Mary and Henry to the growing feelings of Rachel and Liam from a future social interaction perspective while still being able to situate both in the larger storyI suppose what I liked most in a general sense is that this book does so well to both discuss and capture the imagination and observation behind Pride and Prejudice Sense and Sensibility and the other works of Austen s oeuvre without having to do any modern adapting or extending the lives of literary characters that can be received very differently by each reader The writing is good on the whole again better with exposition and dialogue as regards the Regency parts and on Rachel s inner thoughts and changing perspectives less strong for me for future pieces Flynn plays in Austen s sandbox without messing with her creations and her Jane is well imagined so the Austen fan is fairly satisfied with these results I do wish the modern elements the time travel science and implications and even the worlds Rachel and Liam camecome from were as well developed as the Regency period part of the story and the ending really did feel a bit rushed a bit abrupt and not uite as final as I would have liked nor as final as Austen would sign off her novels for her heroines But it was still an enjoyable read and one I would recommend for fans of Austen and especially those who read the Austen re tellings and extended tales like Death Comes to Pemberley Longbourn Eligible A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice and other those who crave Austen these time travelers do too Though I ll probably never need or want to re read this it s enjoyable but not overly memorable especially in comparison to being able to continually delight in the pleasures of Persuasion and the rest of Austen s work

review The Jane Austen Project The Jane Austen Project Free download ↠ 5 England 1815 Two travelers Rachel Katzman and Liam Finucane arrive in a field disheveled and weighed down with hidden money They are not what they seem but colleagues from a technologically advanced future posing as a doctor and his spinster sister While Rachel and Liam aren’t the first team of time travelers their mission is the most audacious yet meet befriend and steal from Jane Austen Carefully selected and rigorous. Dr Rachel Katzman has her mission travel back in time to 1815 London to save an unpublished Jane Austen manuscript from the dustbin of history If possible she d also get a diagnosis for the mystery illness that in less than two years would lead to the author s premature death Rachel and her colleague Liam pose as brother and sister who have just moved to England from a sugar plantation in Jamaica Their first task is to ingratiate themselves with Henry Austen Jane s favorite brother and secure an invitation to the countryside where Jane lives with her mother and sister They re at constant risk for both discovery and altering the future through their actions But it becomes difficult not to want to help the people who have become their friends to save Henry s bank to save Jane s life to save a chimney sweep boy servant they meet along the way They don t know what kind of world they ll be returning to if they return at allI was in the mood for a time travel book and I love Jane Austen so this book captured my imagination pretty uickly Rachel and Liam are not from our time but somewhere in the future where England has reemerged as the dominant world power I didn t really get a sense of that world However the recreation of 1815 was done well and I enjoyed getting a real look at life at this time Austen was sheltered and there were things ladies just didn t talk about much less write about I m iffy about the relationship between Rachel and Liam but liked how their story ended There were a couple of things that felt wrong to me but not enough to be a distraction view spoilerThey re sent to the future with tons of counterfeit money sewn into their clothes but no one thought to include some antibiotics And it seems a bit drastic that their trip would result in no Hitler hide spoiler
