Review: Emma Watson by Joan Aiken & Jane Austen
This may have been an enjoyable regency romance if the author had called it something else, renamed the characters and distanced it a bit from the Jane Austen association. The fact is, she didn't and therefore it deserves to be critiqued as such. And as such, it feels wholly unsatisfying. I found myself skimming through many of the later chapters and rolling my eyes at the hurried ending. Ultimately, this is a book that was made worse, not better by associating it with Austen.
