    One thought on “Eliza's Daughter

    1. Jean on said:

      This is a sequel to Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility", but it stands alone as a good read. If you are overly attached to the original characterisations, however, you may feel that Joan Aiken takes a few liberties. They are all present, and the story is an interesting take on what might happen next, but I felt that my own perception of the various characters differed somewhat from Aiken's depiction. Having said that, I enjoyed this book a lot, and found myself rooting for the spunky main char [...]

    2. Laurel on said:

      Great read, but little to do with Sense and SensibilityHave you ever read a totally unfavorable book review so full of acrimony that it left you wondering if you would have the same reaction? I have, and am often hooked into trying out a book to see if I agree. So when I read a collection of reviews gathered at the Austenfans website against Joan Aiken’s novel Eliza’s Daughter : A Sequel to Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, I was intrigued. Here are a few of the zingers to set the mood. [...]

      Recipe for a Rip-offTake 2 cups of Jane Austen, push back a few years.Add 1 cup Georgette HeyerAdd 1 cup womyn's historyDash clerical pedophiliaDash class consciousnessStir well, bake until almost burned.

    4. Debbie on said:

      This book was not at all what I expected. First, the events in this book occur after the end of Sense and Sensibility. The Eliza of this book is the daughter of Little Eliza and Willoughby. The future painted in this book for the Sense and Sensibility heroines is possible, but I really didn't feel it was probable considering how S&S left the characters. The author gives the heroes and heroines of S&S rather dismal futures and makes them into petty, weak, spiteful, jealous people. Not to [...]

      If you are looking for Jane Austen's writing, you are going to be disappointed. If you are looking for any semblance of Jane Austen's original characters in their brief appearances, you are going to be disappointed. If you are looking for any hint of romance, you are going to be disappointed. After reading this book, I've come to the conclusion that not only does Joan Aiken hate the Dashwood sisters, but she also hates men. Really, the only way I can express the main message of this book is to s [...]

    7. Carol Douglas on said:

      I've read Joan Aiken's Jane Fairfax, which is Jane Austen's Emma from a different point of view, that of economically strapped Jane Fairfax. That was very Austenian in style. Eliza's Daughter is different.Eliza's Daughter is the story of the illegitimate daughter of Willoughby and Eliza from Sense and Sensibility. She is also named Eliza. She's Colonel Brandon's ward, but she has been placed in the town of Byblow Bottom, where the illegitimate children of the well-to-do are dumped. They are rais [...]

    8. Orinoco Womble (tidy bag and all) on said:

      Well, that was odd.I'm not terribly impressed by "follow-ons" of classic novels, written many years after the author of the original is dead (and therefore defenceless). I have read one or two that weren't bad, some that were obvious wish-fulfillment, and a few that descend into fanfic type pastiche. This one wasjust odd. Unlike most Austen emulators, Aiken doesn't seem to like her characters much. She certainly doesn't think much of the original cast of Austen's Sense and Sensibility! Of course [...]

    9. Stef Rozitis on said:

      Even though I loved Sense and Sensibility, I loved that this book did not romanticize the privileged world portrayed within it or the characters. It is a respectful book (far more than most Jane Austen fan fics and sequels) in that it treats Sense and Sensibility as a sensible novel, not as a mere romance. And allows for no happily ever afters even for the protagonists.But you might be wondering "Eliza's daughter"? Because S and S was about Marianne and Eleanor after all! But Eliza was an off-st [...]

    10. Susanne E on said:

      Shockingly good for a Jane Austen spin-off! In fact, while most 'sequels' and so on to Jane Austen novels are pretty awful and mainly seem to pander to those who just want to imagine married life with Mr Darcy, this is actually a good book in its own right. Joan Aiken is a very competent and imaginative writer, which helps, but more importantly Eliza's Daughter wasn't overly reliant on the characterizations and events created by Austen and didn't slavishly preserve all the main characters from S [...]

    11. Jen Mendeck on said:

      As a sequel to Jane Austin, this is poor. Aiken totally massacres my favorite characters. Who wants to read about Elinor living in practical squalor for her whole life? Or Marianne browbeating Brandon until he runs back into the army to get away from her?If this book had been about characters I wasn't already attached to, I would have enjoyed about the first 3/4 of the book. The last bit of the book gets a bit fantastical for me. And the ending is just disappointing.

    12. Jennifer Black on said:

      Ms. Aiken has made a mess of Sense and Sensibility. There was a very long-suffering, endearing heroine, but why couldn't she be nice to everyone else? I was hopeful for her other books, but maybe I'll skip them. She may make Lizzie into a prostitute and Fanny Price into the Prime Minister.

    13. JoAnn on said:

      Why write a "sequel," if you so clearly disliked the original book and all its characters? This one was so ridiculous, it was offensive. I agree with the reviews suggesting the author also has a low opinion of men in general.

    14. Leslie on said:

      I read "Eliza's Daughter" by Joan Aiken while hot on a streak of Jane Austen sequels and otherwise inspired novels. Having been disappointed with most other modern writer's efforts in this genre, I found Joan Aiken's books to be much better than most. She never takes the reader behind bedroom doors, but skillfully alludes to such subjects in a way that I found classy, not at all prudish. This talent is seen the most in this particular novel. How could it not? It's about the love child of Willoug [...]

    15. The Imaginista on said:

      Well being a diehard Austin fan, naturally I'm hesitant to want anyone else to "pick up" where Jane left off - it's presumptuous to say the least. Also, being a writer myself I take somewhat of an issue with writers using famed/esteemed authors names in their book titles or jacket blurbs and using that same esteemed author's characters to take on as their own in their prequel/sequel novels's like Leonardo completing 99% of the master strokes on "Mona Lisa" and then I pick up a brush and lay some [...]

    16. Erica on said:

      I come at this book from an interesting place because I have yet to read Sense and Sensibility (although it's now on my list!). So Eliza's story was fresh for me, although I think being reacquainted with old friends in the book might have made me enjoy it more.As other readers have stated, this book follows little Eliza Williams, the bastard child growing up in a village full of bastard children. The description was incredible and the story galloped apace, so I certainly sped through the book. I [...]

    17. Virginia on said:

      I do not recommend this book for Jane Austen fans; it is in an entirely different style, although it makes use of some of the characters from "Sense and Sensibility". It seems to be more of an anti-Austen book: no one gets married, the war with France is frequently mentioned, nearly everyone of any significance dies, and the Austen characters have almost all suffered dismal fates. There is considerable emphasis on the sorry lot of women at the time, as well as some excursions into parapsychology [...]

    18. Jan on said:

      Joan Aiken is undoubtedly the most accomplished writer in the Austen "continuation" genre. This book continues the story begun in Austen's Sense and Sensibility. Liza, the daughter of Willoughby and Colonel Brandon's ward Eliza, grows up in Byblow Bottom, a town filled with the "byblows" of nearby aristocrats. Her desire to find her parents take her on a series of varied adventures. Austen lovers might be a bit disturbed at the characterizations of some of their favorite S & S characters. El [...]

    19. Kendra on said:

      I wish I could have liked this book more. I was thoroughly disappointed to see how the author characterized the Dashwood sisters. I truly didn't like the thought of Elinor being so much under the thumb of a miserly and stodgy Edward and I hated the thought of Marianne being so vindictive all these years later. I really can't see the characters that Jane Austen in the way they were in Eliza's Daughter.I honestly didn't like much about this story. Ms. Aiken's other Austen sequels are much better. [...]

    20. Allison on said:

      Great, clever, engaging story. I was with her til the end and then on the very last page she utterly and completely pissed me off. Has the end of a book ever made you angry that you let yourself get invested in it? It's like the bitter end of what was once a fabulous love affairh.

    21. Laura Miller on said:

      Agreed with other reviewers. this does upset the conventional wisdom about Elinor and Marianne (and where we all thought they'd end up), but it's enjoyable nonetheless.

    22. Blodeuedd Finland on said:

      No, this was a no from page one. The way it was written was not for me, Eliza who? I gave up pretty fast, I do not have time for books that do not hook me at once.Not for me then

    23. Cindy on said:

      I loved this book! I don't understand why the average rating is so low. I liked this much better than Aiken's Mansfield Revisited, which I read for the same Jane Austen book club. That one was okay but tepid compared to this one.Eliza Williams, the illegitimate daughter of Colonel Brandon's ward & Willoughby in Sense & Sensibility, is the narrator of her own story—and she selects what she wants to share with us. Perhaps this frustrates some readers, but I think that discretion and priv [...]

    24. Judith Pratt on said:

      Worthy of Jane AustenI have just discovered Joan Aiken's books that tell stories about the characters in Jane Austen's works. They are beautifully written and enormously satisfying. Although full of events, the tales unfold unhurriedly, as befits Austen. This one also has a quiet feminism. Women in Austen's time--and before, and since--live by the generosity, or cruelty, of men. Eliza's daughter is strong and tough-minded, surviving and surmounting difficulties.

    25. Linda Jeffries-summers on said:

      Superb evocation of style and period I. The first half, but we are left in Spain with a heroine who has a secret pregnancy and a windfall inheritance from a childless Brandon that is remarkably unprepared for. Perhaps she was planning to write a sequel?

    26. Georgiana 1792 on said:

      Ragione e Sentimento di Charles DickensEliza’s Daughter è un bellissimo romanzo storico che ci fa vedere la realtà del periodo in cui è ambientato, i primi dell’Ottocento, una realtà di cui Jane Austen non ci ha mai parlato, probabilmente perché l’ambiente in cui viveva era decisamente lontano da quello in cui si muove la nostra Liza, un ambiente fatto di figli illegittimi, in cui i ragazzini sono costretti a crescere prima del tempo. Per questo motivo ci si trova a paragonare questo [...]

    27. Ruth on said:

      Felt as if I was back in Austen's time experiencing life in the 18th century. Miss Eliza certainly had a lively and strong spirit, and she was an exciting heroine.

    28. Jennifer on said:

      I'm a huge fan of Joan Aiken's children's literature. As a young person, I remember finding her books absolutely magical. Therefore, I was really excited to see this book, and had high hopes for it. And it did start out promisingly, but once Eliza left Byblow Bottom it really faded for me. I gave it two stars instead of one just because Aiken is a competent writer, no matter how much she may have failed in the execution here. The reasons why I gave it only two stars include, but are not limited [...]

    29. Sarah on said:

      I have a ton of books that were given to me to read and this book happened to be among the many. It is not a book I would have picked up myself, while some of the Austen fan fiction is pretty good, much of it is just, well fan fiction. This one was not fantastic and I will not be keeping it. It was written in the voice of the illegitimate child of Willoughby that caused him to marry the lady Grey in Sense and Sensibility, forsaking Marianne. This was not a great book for many reasons, but most i [...]

    30. Marla on said:

      I was so excited to read this book. Sense and Sensibility is one of my favorite books of all time and I was eager to see what Ms. Aiken would have happen to some of the key characters. I was especially eager to see what became of Marianne and Willoughby. Sadly, I was disappointed in some aspects.I actually really liked the main character, Eliza, who is the daughter of Colonel Brandon's ward, Eliza, and Willoughby. The book opens in a village where the expertise is the rearing of illegitimate chi [...]
