it was ok

What a disappointment. This had such wonderful potential.

I was surprised and embarrassed to stumble into a sex scene! Label me as one of those weirdos who doesn't want to read that kind of filth, even in the context of a loving marriage. There were a few times he wrote this into the book and I just skipped those parts. Now I know what people mean about the "sex and P&p", no thank you.

I did enjoy the character development of Caroline Bingley. There were some fun insights into potential characters and their deeper thoughts. Though the book itself was well written, it was not "Austeny" enough for me. It felt too modern.

I would not read this again. And would not recommend it unless the reader was either 1. Married and mature enough to skip the filth, or 2. Very mature enough to skip the filth.

Drawback was the flawed "atoning" Buford rendered for cheating on his wife *insert angry emoji*. This book was very humanistic.
