Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Allen | 2/12/2014

    " This fictional account of Jane Austen's memoirs is true to the timeline of her life. Very well written. It seems like it is Jane Austen's memoirs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 amypete | 1/30/2014

    " An okay fictional memoir about one of my favorite authors. I found the footnotes to be a bit much. James uses footnotes to authenticate her Austen research, but the whole story is so obviously fiction and makes the footnotes seem silly. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maura | 1/30/2014

    " Author took the easy way out in telling this story. She used sections on Jane Austen's books to make her story. One is left to believe that all Austen's stories were almost totally built using her own experiences, contacts and family down to their exact words and phrases. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Sofarin | 1/27/2014

    " Enjoyable read especially the first two-thirds. She captures some of the spirit and beautiful language I so love with Jane Austen. And it is entertaining to have my most beloved author become the main character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane Mueller | 1/24/2014

    " I much preferred The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte by this author than this book. It was still enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brindi | 1/20/2014

    " I adored this fictional life of Jane Austen. I must add it to my collection immediately! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 LeeAnne | 1/16/2014

    " This is the second "memoir" by Syrie James that I have read in less than a month and that may not have been a good thing though perhaps it is just that I prefer Charlotte Bronte to Jane Austen. Whatever the reason, I did not find this one as enthralling as the Charlotte Bronte book. This one was well written and well researched but it lacked the tenderness of the other. I know it's not fair of me to compare the two but there you have it. I did enjoy this one and I would give it 3.5 stars if that were possible on this forum. Overall, I think any Jane Austen fan will enjoy this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mackenzie | 1/16/2014

    " I loved this book! We read it for our most recent book club, and even though it's been a LONG time since I've read Jane Austen, it was like it all came back! It was hard to put it down...I just wanted to see what would happen next. Definitely a must read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 1/12/2014

    " This was a light, enjoyable novel. It is based on Jane Austen's writings, and was an interesting, yet quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate (VerbVixen) | 12/30/2013

    " Austen fans will love this historical fiction, which gives spinster Jane a great love. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexis | 12/18/2013

    " Though this "memoir" is loosely (and minimally) based on the truth, if you're a Jane Austen fan, you will love this book! It is a great read. The beginning is a bit slow going, but once Jane meets Mr. Ashcroft, you can't put the book down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annie | 11/15/2013

    " Very sweet and satisfying. I now want to go back and read all of Jane Austen's books and althought this was fiction it was based on fact and thus will help me visualize her stories better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 11/10/2013

    " Review soon @ thefaeryromanticlibrarian.com "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 11/5/2013

    " Now I want to go and read all of my Austen books again! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 11/5/2013

    " It was ok, but not brilliant, I didn't think. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cary | 10/8/2013

    " This was a entertaining, heart breaking, happy & enjoyable romp through what should have been Jane Austen's life. I thoroughly liked all the allusions and references to Jane's books too. Very clever. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charity Bradford | 10/1/2013

    " I loved this book! I loved how Syrie James stayed true to Jane Austen's voice. It was fun seeing events from Jane's life that contributed to her writing. It was well written and I kept wishing that it were true. Great novel of what Jane's life might have been like! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Iliana | 8/5/2013

    " Great concept. Not so great execution. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tovi | 6/10/2013

    " I really enjoyed this take on the life of Jane Austen. The author did well with portraying Jane Austen's style of writing and the events of the era. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie | 6/3/2013

    " An interesting and enjoyable extrapolation of Jane - and easy to read, too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawna | 5/22/2013

    " I love how well written this book was I feel as though Syrie could have really found Jane Austen's Memoirs. Its the life that I can really believe she had and a suitable one at that, any Austin fan has to have this on her read list. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sissy | 3/23/2013

    " This is a beautiful creation of what we Jane Austen enthusiasts would imagine her love life would be. Intriguing and smart and full of the heartwrenching details of a life of one of the most influential writers of all time. Syrie James really captures the heart of Jane Austen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jileen | 2/20/2013

    " I loved the tale and wished it were real. I did feel it got a little sappy at parts and very unrealistic but I still really enjoyed it. If anything, this book may spur me to read actual Jane Austen novels now.... :) "
