really liked it

If you love the story of Pride and Prejudice, than you will enjoy this. But, only if you have read Pride and Prejudice will you appreciate this re-telling. Though, I suppose that is always true. It's a quick read, which is good as I really shouldn't neglect my other duties for too long, which tends to happen when I get into a good book. Very fun and entertaining. I agree, though, with other reviews that there were some details of Darcy's life in this book that don't quite mesh with the character that Austen invented. She seemed to throw Byron in to give the book a little more bite. But, come on, does an Austen fan need something like that? I very much doubt it. Those detracted very much from the storyline and didn't add to an understanding of Darcy's character one bit.
