Not a completion! Jan. 21 2008
By GAKDragon - Published on
Format: Paperback
The edition of Jane Austen's "The Watsons" that was published with a foreward by Kate Atkinson is merely a published copy of Jane's original fragment!! It is NOT a completion, like the one John Coates wrote! Unfortunately, the "paperback" link on his page redirects you here. Please take note of this before you buy it, and decide for yourself if you want to purchase only half of the story (also, it's a fragment that's available in the public domain for free).

WARNING!!! Feb. 5 2011
By Cindy Wyneken - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Be very careful! Amazon has not given you enough information! Jane Austen never finished "The Watsons" so what they are selling here is either a FRAGMENT of a novel, or a novel finished BY SOMEONE ELSE. They don't say which!! I recommend NOT buying this until you know what you're buying.

Splendid completion by Coates April 27 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Just when you thought there were no more Jane Austin works to read, this splendid book appeared, dog-eared in a used paperback (!) format. Well worth the search. A fourth sister is reunited with her three impoverished sisters, all in need of husbands - each sister is distinctly drawn, as, to a slightly lesser degree, are their swains. If you can forgive the presumption of Mr. Coates, you will welcome his ready wit and eye for detail. There is as always, a sister who is correct and sensible and striving to be well-behaved, but it is the encounters of the badly-behaved sisters which are truly enjoyable. Better than the (also good) completion of Sanditon, by "another lady."

Disappointing July 25 2006
By Cheryl Simmons - Published on
Format: Paperback
Being a Jane Austen fan, I was very excited by the prospect of a new book. Talking about disappointment. First I was disappointed that Amazon would offer this to me at the price I paid since it's thinner than a steno pad. Secondly I felt like I was left hanging. There is nothing worse than to get caught up in a story and have it end with nothing resolved. If you must read this, don't buy it, until you read it. That way if you do decide to buy, you'll know what you're getting. I gave it 2 stars because it is Jane Austen.

What book? July 8 2014
By Crime Dancer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I thought that I was downloading an entire book, but this was nothing but an incomplete fragment, whether of a book or short story, I cannot say. Disappointed much!
