More like 2 1/2. Some redeeming qualities in both the lead characters. Lydia is not this helpless little girl and John is not the usual aggressive rake. Both have some whimsy in them. But the plot is slim and paste on. I would have enjoyed more characters development instead of the thin plot. More on the social rules and how both of them didn't fit them and broke them instead of the who tried to kill him.
