It's a fun read, and the shapeshifting/werecreatures are amusing.

My main issue with the book (which I also had with Mansfield Park and Mummies, and which I'd likely have with other authors' takes on Austen Novel plus Supernatural Elements) is that the supernatural elements really ought to change the story more than they actually do. Of course the people writing these stories are trying to keep close to the originals, but I'd love to read something by an author who lets the worldbuilding actually affect the plot and characters.

Still, it was good entertainment (Mr. Collins' were-self makes so much sense, and the bit with Georgianna was lovely), and I certainly found it worth the time to read.
