Book review: Second Impressions A Collection of Fiction Inspired by Jane Austen

What would it be like to see Elizabeth Bennet in 1930’s clothes? What if Emma Woodhouse was the daughter of a car dealership owner? What if Marianne Dashwood was seeking to become a movie star in the golden age of film? The Vintage Jane Austen series explores the world of Jane Austen, set in 1930’s America. Five authors took on Jane Austen’s five most popular novels and retold them set in the depression era, remaining faithful to the original plots. As an extra bonus to the series, there is a collection of short stories that were inspired by Jane Austen. Which of these books do you most want to read?

Genre: Fiction

My Rating: 4 Stars.

Recommendation: Anyone who likes a story set in space, or a fictional country, or just a sweet romance.

Second Impressions: Jane Austen’s stories have inspired writers for generations…in this collection they inspire fiction across the genres!
From the English Regency to the American 1950s, in Houston or a space freighter, fairytale land or a retirement center…Austen’s timeless characters come to life again.

I don’t normally read short stories. But some of these are pretty good. My favorite is Emma’s Irritation. They are very well written and I will probably read them some of these short stories again.

received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review and the thoughts are my own.
