    Hardcover æ Longbourn eBook ß longbourn book, Longbourn PDFIt's become a cliche to love Jane Austen's books Her oeuvre is so popular that it has inspired a vast amount of fan fiction much of it crap I've been a Janeite for about 15 years and have read all of Miss Austen's works excepting her Juvenilia which I'm saving for a rainy day I've also picked up dozens of the fan novels in an effort to extend the stay in her world I say picked up rather than read because a great deal of the fanfic is insufferable and must be tossed after the first chapterLongbourn is one of the exceptions The simple description is that it is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice from the servants' point of view But it goes deeper than just a retelling Longbourn made the Bennet home come alive For the first time in all of my readings of PP I felt as if I lived in the same house as Miss Elizabeth

    Hardcover æ Longbourn eBook ß longbourn book, Longbourn PDFHoo boyWhere do I start?Actually that's easy Any review of Longbourn should feature this warning right at the top If you are an Austen purist this book will give you a stroke and a heart attack and possibly cancer So there's thatOh also Any novel written by a non servant is apparently required by law to feature at least one passage in which a character who is a servant will ponder life as a person of leisure and decide Naw Overrated Yeah THAT happenedI wanted to adore this book because I'm tired of people talking about how lovely life was in the Regency No it wasn't Not even if you were rich although that was miles better than being poor Even if you were rich there was no plumbing very little in the way of social mobility and nothing remotely resembling a maxi pad let alone a tampon Not even in spite of what the author of Longbourn says

    Hardcover æ Longbourn eBook ß longbourn book, Longbourn PDFUnfortunately I found this to be a stuffy contemporary literary novel in historical clothing with none of the brio of Austen's own style and little insight to contribute about the characters or story of Pride and PrejudiceThere's not much logic in how the plot of this book fits in with the above stairs developments of Pride and Prejudice The action of Longbourn doesn't consist of previously unseen repercussions of those familiar events nor does it posit any new motives or influences that provide alternate explanations for them At times it feels as though Baker's characters are

    Hardcover æ Longbourn eBook ß longbourn book, Longbourn PDFYou'll think that I'm being silly and hyperbolic when I say books like this are the purpose that historical fiction is meant to serve but I mean it very sincerely Don't pick this book up wanting to swoon over Elizabeth and Darcy or expecting the narrative focus to be on the story Austen told in PP It's not about that It's about giving voice to the voiceless fleshing out the ghosts that would otherwise fade and be shred to pieces before the onslaught of time Blue coat black horse that was Mr Bingley The great tall fellow in the green was Mr Darcy again They clipped past the orchard in profile and oblivious to the housemaids Sarah felt herself fade She could see the leaves and branches through her hand the sun shone straight through her skinAnd now I can

    Hardcover æ Longbourn eBook ß longbourn book, Longbourn PDFReposted from my review at AustenBlogThe publication of Jo Baker’s new novel Longbourn generated the same sort of excitement as the arrival of a single gentleman of good fortune It has been described as being a cross between Pride and Prejudice and Downton Abbey When we heard this premise we were all admiration What a brilliant idea Two of the most wildly popular and well known popular culture properties–now together It might be the greatest idea since some genius combined chocolate and peanut butter The Commercial Publishing Industrial Complex has predictably lost its mind over it frankly we are astonished that its publication did not rip open the fabric of the universe creating a giant black hole that sucked us all into itWhile this soundbyte selling point makes it simple for publishers and booksellers we think it has done the authoress a disservice We think Ms Baker was s

    Hardcover æ Longbourn eBook ß longbourn book, Longbourn PDFJane Austen meets Downton Abbey is the crude shorthand but this novel is so much I hardly dare say it Janeites are a fearsome bunch such talk could get me lynched Could this be better than the original? Pride and Prejudice that is Perhaps better is not the right word but fuller Baker’s is a fully convincing and unbiased vision of early nineteenth century English life featuring multiple classes and races – and it doesn’t airbrush away unpleasant bodily realities Longbourn is for the most
