Reviews for Happily Ever After
You could not find a better celebration of Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice' than this book by Susannah Fullerton. I am now buying it for all my friends and recommending it to everyone I speak to.
It is informative, fun and full of insights. The author talks about the translations of the novel, the merchandise it has inspired, all the extraordinary sequels and prequels, the film versions, the covers and illustrations. I read the book in one sitting as I couldn't put it down.
If you want to celebrate "Pride and Prejudice' properly this year, then you must read this book.

A diamond jewel
At the conclusion of her assessment of Pride & Prejudice, Susannah Fullerton likens the novel to the ultimate precious stone. Her book provides the ideal reading companion for JA's most famous creation. From the Austen novice to the dedicated Janeite, there is something here to resonate with all. Far from losing sight of the unique sparkling tone of her subject, the author demonstrates perfect pitch in her discussion of the famous opening sentence, full range of characters, film and theatre versions and the industry that has grown from them. And there is much more besides, showing the author's deep knowledge of and affection for P&P. Here is a celebration that deserves complete appreciation. by Ruth Williamson
