I didn't much care for this book. I just couldn't quite buy into Mr. Knightley writing the kind of stuff in his diary that he did. It made him sound a little like a smitten schoolboy at times. However, I did like some of the side characters and their experiences - little things that were not in the original Emma, but still fit into the story as possible events. I have read some REALLY bad alternate POV and sequels to Jane Austen novels, and this is not one of the worst. I did not have a desire to throw it against the wall or out the window while I was reading it. It was just kind of lukewarm and a little dull. I can't really recommend it or not recommend it. I guess it depends on the reader's taste.
Another of Amanda Grange's deft and cleverly written diaries, this is the perspective of Mr Knightley, Jane Austen's erstwhile romantic hero in her novel, Emma. In this one we find Mr Knightley recording the actions of his days spent at Highbury, London and Donwell Abbey - a life somewhat uneventful, until the stunning, self-realization that he is, indeed, in love with the exasperating Emma! Could it be? But, of course, who could blame him! Well written and such fun to read, especially for those who love "Emma" themselves!
