Did not capture Jane Austen's voice at all, not to mention that the story itself just dragged on and on.

I had a feeling reading this book that i imagine is akin to the feelings that the none litterary minded would have when being forced to read Jane Austin in high school. something along the lines of... "Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuu@#$#! Isn't there a BBC movie we can watch to find out how it ends? What not even a made for T.V. movie? Dayyem."

It's not a feeling I get much I like reading and i like Jane Austen. But this! This was brutal, In the 'trying to stay awake through a lecture on Statistics in an over heated lecture hall' kind of way. Not a pleasant experience.

I do absolutly adore the cover though. So there's that.
