Item Description...
An interactive novel in which the reader determines the course of action for characters from Jane Austen's works, beginning with Elizabeth Bennet whose mission is to marry both prudently and for love, while avoiding family scandal.

Publishers Description
Bringing together Jane Austen's most beloved characters and storylines--a clever, playful, interactive, and highly entertaining approach to the wildly popular novels in which you, the reader, decide the outcome
"Name: Elizabeth Bennet.
Mission: To marry both prudently and for love.
How? It's entirely up to the reader."
The journey begins in "Pride and Prejudice" but quickly takes off on a whimsical Austen adventure of the reader's own creation. A series of choices leads the reader into the plots and romances of Austen's other works. Choosing to walk home from Netherfield Hall means falling into "Sense and Sensibility" and the infatuating spell of Mr. Willoughby. Accepting an invitation to Bath leads to "Northanger Abbey" and the beguiling Henry Tilney. And just where will "Emma"'s Mr. Knightley fit in to the quest for a worthy husband? It's all up to the reader.
A labyrinth of love and lies, scandals and scoundrels, misfortunes and marriages, "Lost in Austen" will delight and challenge any Austen lover.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Fun read  Oct 14, 2008
Oh Sure it's not the best book ever written, but it is fun for a fluffy read on a rainy weekend. The choices cracked me up sometimes, and I can't wait to finish it and see what happens to me next. Great addition to any Austen lovers library.
Great diversion!  Oct 3, 2008
I ordered this book because I wanted to get free shipping, and I was missing a couple dollars. To my surprise and delight, this turned out to be a very fun read! The diversions from the main plot are very ingenious, and you'll recognize many of Jane Austen's works. Totally worth getting.
Fun for Austen fans and other readers  Sep 5, 2008
Combine Jane Austen novels (especially Pride and Prejudice) with the children's Choose-Your-Own Adventure format, and you get this book. Your goal, of course, is a suitable marriage, but beware of the many possible complications. Made the wrong choice, turn to the wrong page, and disater may ensue. You might well be scarred for life, imprisoned in Northanger Abbey, or (worst of all fates) remain a spinster. Oh, well, you can always backtrack. Too bad life doesn't work that way.

This is a fun read. It doesn't require extensive knowledge of Austen, though some memory of the book or movie version would probably make it easier to keep track of characters (some of whom are imported from other Austen novels). It might be an effective way to involve students or would-be Austen readers with the novels. And, of course, for the young adult or old adult who enjoyed the choose-your-own-adventure stories as children, it's a pleasant bit of nostalgia.

Fun!!! if you want Classic Austen, read Classic Austen  Jul 5, 2008
SO I have seen people complain because this book alters some of Austen's details and mixes events or people from different books. Come on, this book is meant for fun. It's Jane Austen + Choose your own adventure books from my childhood, and it's about time someone thought to combine the 2. This book is amusing and entertaining. Enjoy it for what it's meant to be.
Thoroughly enjoyable fun!  Jun 18, 2008
I'm working my way through this now, and am finding it to be lots of fun. If you make all of the decisions that Elizabeth Bennet made, then you end up with the P&P story (in summary form), with commentary that I find amusing and is, I think, even insightful - kind of a modern view of the ups and downs of this particular romance. If you choose to keep track of the "points" that are used in the book, I think it actually serves to highlight just how much of a social impact different events had in that time. If you choose a path different from what Elizabeth Bennet did, then you're taken off into storylines that echo other JA novels (and even some that echo her real life), though they're made to fit within the P&P context (like Willoughby visiting his Aunt, Mrs. Smith, who lives in Meryton).

No, it's not JA's writing, but it's not meant to be. No, the detours into other novels aren't completely true to those novels, but they're not supposed to be. I'm finding this to be a fun, and even insightful, romp through imagination, with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. Bring the right attitude and you'll have a good time. :-)
