A Peek Into Austen’s Early Writing, March 9, 2010
By 

Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

When this ebook was first loaded, the title was listed as – “Love and Freindship”. The preface to this work stated they had not corrected the spelling, punctuation or odd capitalization Austen used in these pieces. I have been told the `i before e’ rule was not in place during her time. I am not sure if this is true. She also spells – greif and beleif as such.

This is a great collection of the early writings of Jane Austen. As a writer I LOVED reading her rough ramblings. She played with plot lines and character traits. So this title is not so much a story but many snippets of ideas or writing practice. Many of the shorts contained are rough and unpolished.

The first section of Love and Friendship is a funny, rambling tale told through letters. Imagine what a soap opera written by Austen would be like and you’ll have it. Once you’ve read this collection I suggest you try Lady Susan. That one is equally as fun.

Love and Friendship is a peek into the working mind of a classic author. We rarely get this opportunity and I encourage you to give these samples a read.

The youthful start of a great writer…, January 31, 2011

This review is from: Love and Freindship [sic] (Paperback)

This was…cute. And clever. A collection of the early works of Jane Austen. The Austen fan can see Jane’s sharp wit and sense of humor right off the bat. These writings are immature, but impressive for her age. Occasionally the reader catches glimpses of settings or characters that are later used in Austen’s ‘great’ novels.

Recommended only for Jane Austen’s loyal readers.

Good for Austen Completists, But Consider a Different Edition, December 30, 2010

This review is from: Love and Freindship [sic] (Paperback)

This is an early Jane Austen work, written when she was a teenager and unpublished during her lifetime. It’s not a great story, but is a good read for serious Austen fans – you can see her experimenting with the ideas and techniques that she would later use to better effect. The book is a romance told in a series of letters, but mocks many of the conventions of romances.

My main complaint about this particular edition is the typesetting, which is done with unappealing and difficult to read block print. If you’re interested, I would recommend that you start with the (free) Kindle version, or look at Love and Freindship: And Other Early Works of Jane Austen (Classic Reprint), which looks like it was typeset more appealingly.
