Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

Charlotte Collins: A Continuation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice ★★★☆☆

Charlotte Collins: A Continuation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice - Jennifer Becton, Anne Day-Jones

This is my first Jane Austen fan-fiction, or whatever you call it when an author writes a new story with a new plot, but using the characters and setting created by another author, and sells it for money. Is it only fan-fic when it's posted on the internet for free with the standard disclaimers about not owning the imagined world or characters?

 

As a conventional romance, it was mildly entertaining. However, the characters of Charlotte and Maria were not at all consistent with the original characters from Pride and Prejudice that they were supposedly based on.

 

Audiobook version, adequately read by Anne Day-Jones.
