Muy en la línea de Jane Austen. Personajes vanidosos y una historia un poco lenta. La ambientación está muy bien

It's a bit dull and the pace is too slow for me. However, how Jane Austen crafted Anne's character and the other female characters are so well and I love and appreciate the descriptions and mentioning of many aspects of everyday life. It's not that dramatic and is more real. Truthfully the ending more made up for it.
