    One Reply to “Mr. Knightley's Diary”

    1. Mr. Knightley, forever favourite <3This book was wonderful. I loved reading about Mr. Knightley's feelings, and seeing how he gradually fell in love with Emma. In Jane Austen's original, it is said that he has "loved her ever since she was thirteen", but in Mr. Knightley's Diary, he takes a heck of a time to figure out that the reason why he enjoys his evenings at Hartfield above any other evenings, and that he likes to look at Emma more than at any other woman is because he loves her, but I [...]

    2. Did Jane Austen talk over characterization with her mother and sister Cassandra? Did she have an editor whose sole job was to succor the novel’s development and support the author lest there be a grievous oversight? We have no evidence Jane did have that modern boon – someone very interested in furthering the author’s work.Now we have writing coaches, workshops, groups, classes, best friends and the best of all possible mentors, (paid) professional editors skilled and trained in literature [...]

    3. “Mr. Knightley’s diary” is a pleasant retelling of Jane Austen’s “Emma”. It is the story told from the perspective of the male hero and it tries, as the other Austen heroes’ diaries do, to give some answers to all the questions a true Austen admirer might ask by giving voice to the men. I have always thought that Mr. Knightley was the perfect husband. And after reading “his diary” I can tell I was not mistaken. George Knightley has all the greatest qualities of a perfect man an [...]

    4. This was my first dip into the world of Austen-ana. Certain Austen enthusiasts have created a branch of fan fiction (books and movies) that imagines retellings of her tales from other established characters' viewpoints. For some strange reason, I thought I should see what it was all about. From my experience withMr. Knightley's Diary, I am in no hurry to try again. It is a sad retelling indeed that not only bores the reader, but causes the reader to wonder why she ever liked certain characters i [...]

    5. I have a sinking feeling that I'm going to work my way through all of Grange's books and have mixed feelings about all of them. In this case, she relied too much on the awkward "for some reason". Mr. Knightley prefers spending time at Hatfield over anywhere else for some reason. Mr. Knightley dislikes Frank Churchill for some reason. Mr. Knightley doesn't think anyone is good enough to Emma for some reason. It's the author's way of nudging the reader - see? see? look at our little in-joke. It's [...]

    6. 2.5 stars.Reading any of Jane Austen's novels from the hero's perspective always has interesting aspects but on the whole this was quite bland. I don't think the diary format helped in this respect as it was so simply written (as a diary naturally would be). It was basically a novel that was just a recording of he/she said this and he/she did this. The end. If you add this to the fact that I read this a week after finishing Emma so maybe the story was still to fresh in my mind.It was a quick rea [...]

    7. Right so I've just finished reading Mr Knightley's diary by Amanda Grange and its absolutley amazing!!! I love it love it love it. Having Mr Knightley being my Austen hero its really interesting to read from his point of view all the scandal Emma gets up to and when he starts to find himself falling in love with Emma and the Jealously of Mr Knightley vs Frank Churchill invovled. For having being friend with Emma Woodhouse to find yourself falling in love with her is a romantic story to tell. Hav [...]

    8. Splendid. Delightful. Sighing happy perfection.In our modern world were every bit of news on paper, television and social media is of a negative and depressing connotation, it is a great relief to still be able to open a book for shelter and cover from the reality of the sad cruel cruel world. I do it often. Books are and have always been my haven. I was delighted this time to retreat back into the 1800's to the quaint town of Highbury to be a fly on the wall reading the musings of Mr. Knightly' [...]

    9. As I have also said about Captain Wentworth’s Diary, I believe that Mr Knightley’s Diary is Emma the way that Emma should have been told in the first place.My main problem with Emma was the huge amounts of doing absolutely nothing, the irritating heroine (who did grow on me, eventually, a bit), and the fact that after a lot of pages all the characters ended up pretty much where they began – for example, Harriet and Robert Martin.Mr Knightley’s Diary fixes all of these problems. To be hon [...]

    10. I enjoyed the book, but there was nothing that stuck out. It was the story of Emma from the perspective of Mr. Knightley. Mr. Knightley has always been one of my favorite men in Jane Austen. I see him differently than the author, and maybe that is why I didn't love the book. I didn't see him as fickle, or emotional. For me Mr. Knightley was always a steadfast, and grounded man who loved Emma, and because of that love he wanted to see her be better.All in all a good read if you are looking for so [...]

    11. Note on source: I was wandering through the library looking for who knows what, and found this book written from the perspective of Emma's Mr. Knightley. How could I resist? Update: Finished it last night. It was fine, but nothing worth re-reading, no quotes to write down, no brilliant insights. Fun, but nothing more.

    12. O ponto de vista da personagem Mr Knightley, da obra "Emma" de Jane Austen. Escrito como um diário, vemos o dia à dia de um proprietário de terras, enquanto tenta perceber os seus sentimentos pela sua vizinha muito mais jovem que ele, vemos a pequena sociedade de Highbury com as suas personagens caricatas e de diversas classes sociais. Apesar de não trazer nada de novo em relação a obra de Jane Austen, não deixa de ser uma leitura agradável, onde George Knightley é apresentado como um h [...]

    13. Au départ, j’étais un peu inquiète à l’idée de le lire en anglais. Ce n’est pas ma langue maternelle et je n’ai pas un niveau de dingue non plus, même si je le comprends bien à l’écrit.Les premières pages m’ont rassurée d’entrée, le livre est très abordable même si on est pas bilingue et je n’ai eu aucune difficultés de compréhension durant ma lecture (connaitre l’histoire m’a peut-être un peu aidée) Sur l’histoire, et bien c’est très fidèle à l’orig [...]

    14. Ah ce cher Mr Knightley, j'avais hâte de lire son journal. Je le classerai en troisième position de mes personnages masculins préférés de Jane Austen après le Capitaine Wentworth et Mr Darcy.J'ai attaqué la lecture de ce livre en étant sûre de passer un agréable moment, et je n'ai pas été déçue. Amanda Grange relève encore une fois avec brio la tâche ardue d'écrire une adaptation d'une oeuvre de Jane Austen. Car il faut bien l'avouer, les fans de Jane Austen (dont je fais partie [...]

    15. A few years ago I read "Mr Darcy's Diary" by the same author. I can't remember whether I liked that book very much or not. All I remember is that I had a positive feeling about it, not only because it was true to Austen's style, but it made me want to read Captain Wentworth's Diary, if that existed. I don't remember if it did at the time or not, in any case, I did not get it and forgot about the books until very recently when I read in the newsletter that Henry Tilney's Diary had just been rele [...]

    16. I didn't expect the quality of the prose or the depth of the writing to be equal to those of Jane Austen, but I did expect them to be as good as one would expect from any standard work of writing for adults. In this I was disappointed.Still, it was a somewhat entertaining read. It seemed kind of pointless that so much of it was the exact same events told in Emma but less eloquently from the perspective of someone else in the same room (although at least, since Jane Austen thought of them, they m [...]

    17. Emma retold through Mr. Knightley's point of view. A fun book, but it doesn't give me enough of what I want from this kind of novel — an idea of what the hero actually does, besides be interested in the heroine. Not that Grange avoids this, but Grange is more likely to summarize Mr. Knightley’s actions as “discussed parish business” or “talked with William Larkin about various problems”, rather than being specific.Grange adds several original characters, which makes absolute sense; w [...]

    18. I absolutely LOVE the voice Grange gives Mr. Knightley in this book. Of the three Austen hero diaries I've read, this is my favorite. First, I enjoyed the fact that Knightley had a hard time realizing he was in love with Emma -- in fact, one of his friends has to point it out to him more than once before he realizes the truth of it all. Second, it introduces new characters while remaining true to the characters from the original novel -- and all of Knightley's opinions on these characters seem a [...]

    19. This is a retelling of Jane Austen's Emma from the perspective of Mr. Knightly. I enjoyed getting to see the story from a different perspective, and especially from seeing Emma's character revealed in such a way as from another character who befriended her, scolded her, and loved her. The novel lacks some of the plot suspense as in the original novel, but that is only to be expected since it is written in diary form. All in all, I could definitely read it again, and it makes a good companion nov [...]

    20. My sister got this for Christmas and I borrowed it for a fun plane read. From the point of view of Mr. Knightley from Jane Austen's Emma. Of course it is nothing compared to Austen but entertaining to revisit her charming story. I did enjoy Mr. Darcy's Diary by the same author more than this one, probably because I also like Pride and Prejudice more, and Mr. Darcy is so dreamy, as everyone knows

    21. This sheds a new light on Knightley!! Great to see how it finally dawned on him that Emma was the one for him, and then having to put up with the abominable Churchill pining over his Lady!

    22. I'll admit I didn't have particularly high hopes going into this. Of the Austen novels I've read (all but Sense and Sensibility), only Mansfield Park ranks lower than Emma in my personal list. Emma's main redeeming feature is that Emma is hilariously, entertainingly awful, and it's biggest detriment is that Knightley is just the worst and also a massive creep. Obviously, retelling the story from his point of view is unlikely to change that, as indeed it did not. I do like the concept of the Aust [...]

    23. Ahhhh For all Jane Austen lovers, Mr. Knightley's Diary is sure to be a favorite. Grange, again, captures the hero's voice and demeanor perfectly and tells a well-written account of Emma from a man's perspective.My only complaints are that, from a modern perspective, seeing Mr. Knightley's perspective made the age difference between he and Emma a little bit more accentuated. I also thought the ending a bit abrupt.But otherwise, this is a really great read!

    24. Oh, I adore this ! It was really satisfaying seeing Mr Knightley come to realize his true feelings for our special Emma. Mr Knightley (maybe thanks of Emma Approve) is easily one of my favourite heroes of Austen. But well, how can someone resist with such a declaration? 'If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more.'That Alex Knightley made it too, only makes it more beautiful. <3

    25. I love the voice Grange gives Mr. Knightley, who has a hard time realizing that he's actually in love with Emma (which makes a nice parallel to the original book). I also enjoy that Grange is the second author I've read who has found it necessary to find Miss Bates a spouse.

    26. Huge disappointment. I wanted to like this book but it was impossible. I hated Mr. Knightley's spiteful entries about Frank (and improbable sideplot about Miss Bates's admirer. The rest of it was just BORING!

    27. I love Mr. Knightley, and I'm never ready for my time with him to end. this book continued my affection for him, and when it was done, I was again sad to see him go. I enjoyed the perspective.

    28. A charming, light and satisfying retelling of Jane Austen's Emma from the point of view of George Knightley.
