The Summertime Jane Austen Book Club #2

I’ve finished it.
Which surprises me, because I initially didn’t find Sanditon an easy read. 
But having become reused to the language of Austen,
I found that I became invested in the characters
and wanted to know what would happen to them.  
Even though I knew where The Other Lady took over,
I didn’t notice a discernible change in style of writing.  
 Which I suppose was the original aim, no? 
I found the plot to be classic Austen,
but as it was a plot that had served her well, why would The Other Lady risk changing it?
There were several chuckle out loud moments in the narrative,
and there was a unexpectedly good twist towards the end.
All told, I was happy with how the story wrapped up.
Have you joined us for the Sanditon-along?
It’s running throughout July, so you have time.
How are you getting on?

  1. I think my difficulty is that I'm not holding a book as I read Sandition but a tablet (col) … yes immersing oneself back into Austen language is a good idea. I'm about 1/2 way through & I put it down for a break & to finish another book before its due date overtakes me. By the way, I do like the polish colour on your nails …
