Oh boy. This book was a copy of Pride and Prejudice. From using the same vernacular, to an almost identical story-line, it mimicked Jane Austen's writing heavily. However, the characters lacked depth and it was extremely high on drama from the get-go. I almost had to put it down(which I never do), it was so ridiculous at first. Though it improved somewhat, the flow lacked at times and the climax of the novel was awfully anti-climatic and disappointing. So much of the book was also very cliche, especially the million happenstance meetings between Lydia and Lord Denton.

Despite all this, I found myself sighing with happiness at the end. I guess I just can't resist a British, Pride and Prejudice type, love story.
