“MASTERPIECE’s bold and lavish adaptation of Jane Austen’s final work stars Rose Williams (Curfew) as Austen’s lively but levelheaded heroine, Charlotte Heywood; Theo James (Divergent) as the humorous, charming (and slightly wild!) Sidney Parker; Anne Reid (Years and Years) as the forthright grande dame of Sanditon, Lady Denham; Kris Marshall (Love Actually) as Sanditon’s compulsively enterprising promoter, Tom Parker; and Crystal Clarke (Ordeal by Innocence) as the mysterious West Indian heiress, Miss Lambe.”
The World of Sanditon: The Official Companion Hard Cover – Illustrated, December 10, 2019
“The official companion to the Masterpiece series contains everything a fan could want to know. It explores the world Austen created, along with fascinating insights about the period and the real-life heartbreak behind her final story. And it offers location guides, behind-the-scenes details, and interviews with the cast, alongside beautiful illustrations and set photography.”
Additional Comments: This companion piece is a treasure of information about the making of Sanditon and the time in which Jane Austen lived. I cannot praise it highly enough, as it contains such gems as how that “snake” ended up in the design on the drawing-room floor! Don’t miss out on owning this piece of history and set design.
“A novelization of ITV’s lavish period drama, Sanditon, adapted for television by Emmy and BAFTA-Award winning writer Andrew Davies and based on Jane Austen’s unfinished novel.”
Additional Comments: I purchased the book by Kate Riordan after watching Sanditon because there was so much more I wanted to know about the inner workings of the characters themselves. What were they thinking? What happened between scenes? What more could I learn that would enrich my experience with Sanditon? It should be noted that this book is as stated – a novelization of ITV’s “lavish period drama,” meaning it doesn’t stray hardly an inch from the screenplay, except to put in writing the scenes and actions. If you are looking for depth to the story, you won’t find it in the novel. Unfortunately, it left me wanting more. Nevertheless, don’t let me discourage you from purchasing! It’s worth having in your library.
