I was really unhappy with this followup to Pride and Prejudice. While the dialog felt right, it was the silly plot twists that ruined the novel for me. Only for the die-hard Austen fans, and even then, I'd still have some cautions. I tried to give it a fair chance, I really did, but this was a failure for me.

Misfit Thankfully I'm not an Austen fan so I can skip all these knock offs.

Rebecca Huston You're probably wise to do that. I keep hoping that I'll come across something good, but it's very far and very few that meet that standard.
