Read 22 pages. Couldn't get into it. Taking a break.

Lady Susan is a treat, with a deliciously wicked title character; it's slightly trashy and catty as hell and I really can't recommend it enough.

The Watsons is an abandoned novel of an impoverished woman of respectable family trying to find a suitable match; it's little more than a sketch and most of what's there looks like it would become parts of Austen's major novels. The unfinished Sanditon is a satirical look at a seaside resort and is much more polished than the other two works; it has the seeds of what could have been a masterpiece. ( )

Lady Susan, The Watson’s, Sanditon is an omnibus volume of Jane Austen’s earlier works. She is much more cutting here than in her later, better-known volumes. Lady Susan is a complete beast of a woman: conniving, manipulative, and thoroughly selfish. She attempts to marry her daughter to a much older man, completely against the girl’s will, and tries to match herself up with a true catch. This being Austen, all does end well; the rather mean delight is in seeing Lady Susan fail.

The Watsons is the weakest of the three stories here. Emma Watson has to return to her father’s home after living with a wealthy aunt. The story is unfinished, so we can appreciate Emma’s chagrin at the behavior of her siblings, but that’s all.

Sanditon is full of delicious characters. Lady Denham, in particular, stands out as an unbelievably vain woman who has to be the most important person at all times. The thin plot involves the development of a seaside resort. Although Austen didn’t live to finish the book, it’s clear that this would have been a lighthearted look at the foibles of those attempting to be just a bit more significant than they really are.

As a volume of mostly incomplete stories, these short works showcase Jane Austins Talent. As always, some are better than others, but they span Ms. Austin's writing career. Its a shame that the The Watsons and Sanditon are incomplete.

The first story, Lady Susan, was written at the start of Jane Austin's Career. The story is complete, but very uneven. Lady Susan is a big personality, taking up most of the story. Incredibly egotistical, she uses her daughter to improve her own statue. As for the ending, I think Ms. Austin just gave up. It is finished with an epilogue, explaining what happened to all the characters. The good comes out on top, the wicked gets her comeuppance.

As for the Watsons - its unfortunate that the story isn't finished. There is everything a reader could want - orphan with no money, silly relatives, a love interest and wit. The ending of the story is fairly predictable, but I suspect that the aunt would have made a return, possibly with money.

Last is Sanditon - its a much thicker story than The Watsons or Lady Susan. My initial thoughts were annoyance, but with themes of a changing world, and a social standings, it has potential. Its too bad that this story wasn't finished. It has so much potential to address social standings, a changing world and small town economy, and of course, relationships.

One last thing - there is an introduction by the editor - Ms. Margaret Drabble. I think she sometimes misses the point of the stories. She also makes connections that aren't there. Of course, my edition was from the 1970's, so it might be opinions from a different time. ( )

I'm both a completist and not a huge fan of Jane Austen, so it was with mixed feeling si approached this book of unpublished works. 2 were incomplete, the third completed, but much shorter and less polished than her published works. The Watsons and Sanditon were just so-so, so much Jane Austen. The one I enjoyed the most was the once most unlike her later style. Lady Susan is written as a series of letters and she can;t ;pull it off effectively for the entire story. It also features a character who is quite ungenteel, in the titual anti-heroine. Lady Susan is a gold digger and is out for force her daughter Frederica into a mariage with a very stupid man, while Lady Susan embarks on affairs and generally breaking up happy familes. It is not an effective piece of writing, in that there is nothing to balance Lady Susan, no light and shade, it dominated by Susan and there's no clear contrast to be found. But I found it so different from the usual tale of manners and repression that i quite enjoyed it. ( )

Lady Susan: My dear brother, I can no longer refuse myself the pleasure of profiting by your kind invitation when we last parted, of spending some weeks with you at Churchill, and therefore if quite convenient to you and Mrs. Vernon to receive me at present, I shall hope within a few days to be introduced to a sister whom I have so long desired to be acquainted with.
The Watsons: The first winter assembly in the town of D. in Surrey was to be held on Tuesday October the thirteenth, and it was generally expected to be a very good one; a long list of country families was confidently run over as sure of attending, and sanguine hopes were entertained that the Osbornes themselves would be there.
Sanditon: A gentleman and lady travelling from Tonbridge towards that part of the Sussex coast which lies between Hastings and Eastbourne, being induced by business to quit the high road, and attempt a very rough lane, were overturned in toiling up its long ascent half rock, half sand.
