Jane Austen as We've Always Wanted Her
This follow up to “Jane Bites Back” is every bit as witty, juicy and bloody. Here is Jane Austen as we always wanted her, immortal, deadly, witty as heck, and most importantly, still writing.
This time around, she’s a successful “debut” author being dogged by fans, reviewers, and filmmakers producing a film version of her new work. Add in a fiancé who wants her to convert to Judaism, and a potential mother in law who is also—yes a vampire hunter.
Thomas Michael Ford is up to the task of keeping this madcap comedy rolling along. He possesses an arch wit and deadly sense of drama that few can rival.
Once again Katherine Kellgren narrates seamlessly, with a whole town’s worth of voices keeping everything going at a satisfying clip.

What would have made Jane Goes Batty better?
A plot that made sense and likable characters.
What was most disappointing about Michael Thomas Ford’s story?
What does Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
A lot of yelling.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Jane Goes Batty?
To many to mention, but number one on the list would be the softball game that devolved into a croquet game.
Any additional comments?
The book actually got off to a good start. The rabid fan is a decent send up of Harriet Klausner. However, the story never gels. Jane is too much of a doormat to be likable. Read the 3 star Amazon reviews before paying for this.
