did not like it

Try as I might, I could not get into this book. The synopsis sounding interesting, so I was excited to read this. However, it couldn't hold my attention. As I read, it ended up not being half as exciting as I thought it would be. My main problem was the writing itself. I understand that this book takes in regency times, but the writing was soo boring. I felt like I was struggling through a Jane Austen novel. Part of me feels bad because I won a free copy, but I just couldn't get into the flow it. I guess that people who are into classic books will like this. Reading should be fun and this book made me feel like it was a school required reading.
