Thank heaven for Whit Stillman and his reworking of Austen's novella, Lady Susan... Stillman seamlessly interweaves the original text and his own words. There were moments when I was unsure which bits were Austen's and which were Stillman's... If, like me, you like your Austen subversive, cruel, funny and outrageous, then you will love Stillman's Love & Friendship. - The TimesStillman has immense fun playing the earnest, gullible narrator's misconceptions against the machinations of an arch-manipulator in this witty, sly spoof - Mail on SundayAnyone expecting a straightforward novelisation of the film is actually going to find something far cleverer in their hands - BookanistaLady Susan is finally getting some long overdue respect... The book and film both showcase some of the sharpest lines from Austen's overlooked work. - New York TimesFunny.... Lady Susan remains deliciously wicked - VoguePRAISE FOR LOVE & FRIENDSHIP - THE FILMA racy delight... What audacity, what elegance! Here is a hilariously self-aware period comedy polished to a brilliant sheen - Guardian *****Shows just how funny Jane Austen can be... It's flat-out hilarious - find me a funnier screen stab at Austen, and I'm tempted to offer your money back personally - Telegraph *****A very dry and tremendously witty adaptation - Independent *****
A CLEVER RE-IMAGINING OF JANE AUSTEN'S NOVELLA LADY SUSAN BY ACCLAIMED FILMMAKER WHIT STILLMAN, LOVE & FRIENDSHIP IS NOW A FILM STARRING KATE BECKINSALE, CHLOE SEVIGNY AND STEPHEN FRY.

Haven't even finished reading this book -- but find it ...13 May 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
Haven't even finished reading this book -- but find it truly remarkable. A new Jane Austen, worthy of the original! Imagine that Mr. Collins undertook to rewrite Pride and Prejudice, attempting to rehabilitate his own reputation and that of Lady Catherine de Bough. That gives you an idea of the approach -- but the language is so lovely and the ironies so delicious! I have been laughing out loud, reading passages to my husband. My plan is to finish the book, re-read Jane Austen's unfinished Lady Susan -- and then return and re-read this one. Then I will press my copy on my most discerning friends ...

which I really enjoyed. I'm a diehard Austen fan and have read ...4 June 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
This book wasn't exactly what I expected from reading the previous reviews. If I had to do it over, I'd just go see the movie, which I really enjoyed. I'm a diehard Austen fan and have read many (probably too many) variations and sequels. This one is very clever, but the style was a bit arch for my taste. I enjoyed re-reading the original more. I do like the new ending and think Jane would too if she were alive today. I think I'm mostly irked that I shelled out so much money for an ebook that was really quite short. It included the original Austen, but I could have gotten that for free. The matinee I caught for five bucks was a much better value.

A Delightful Gem With Austen's Flare for Wit and Charm20 May 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
I bowled over laughing after reading every sentence written in this outstanding Austen re-creation! Whit Stillman is at his very best comical self with Love and Friendship, and I can very well imagine his book being applauded the world over for its ingenious and sparkling humor! Lady Susan Vernon is not vindicated at all, and therein lies the intelligent irony of this novel. Austen would be very proud! This book is a must-read for everyone who ever claimed to be a Janeite!
