Book Description

April 1 2007 Hesperus Classics
Left impoverished upon the death of her aunt, Emma Watson has no option but to be reunited with her estranged father and siblings. Initially delighted with her new life—including the fashionable society balls to which she now has access—Emma soon realizes that her family harbors many ill feelings, not least those springing from the sisters' hopes—and disappointments—in snaring a husband. So when the eligible and suitably rich Tom Musgrove begins to transfer his affections from her sister Margaret to Emma, the result can only be further sibling rivalry and unrest. A delightful, exquisitely drawn portrait of family life, The Watsons is Jane Austen at her storytelling best. Author of the masterpieces Pride and Prejudice and Emma, Jane Austen (1775–1817) is one of the most beloved novelists of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid completion by Coates April 27 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
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."

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a completion! Jan. 21 2008
By GAKDragon - Published on Amazon.com
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).

3.0 out of 5 stars WARNING!!! Feb. 5 2011
By Cindy Wyneken - Published on Amazon.com
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing July 25 2006
By Cheryl Simmons - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Austen Nov. 8 2009
By Najla Alowais - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
As an Austen fan, I thoroughly enjoyed 'The Watsons'. I must confess that I am completely biased here since I've always liked Austen's work. The novel, or novelette, was never finished, but there is a short explanation of what was going to happen later on had Austen lived to complete it. Apparently, she talked about the plot and how she intended to finish the book with her nieces and family. It has been so long since I picked up a classic to read and I have really missed that era - the language, the countryside, the balls, the people. This book has definitely rekindled my passion for classics and I am certainly going to include more of them in my diet. I recommend this book to all austen loving creatures out there
