3.5 stars. 5 stars for the meticulous research, 4 stars for an interesting subject matter, and 2-3 for the actual storyline. I really feel like I should give this a higher rating; the writing is strong and the research amazing. But ultimately I didn't find Georgiana a very sympathetic character (not the author's fault!). The political bent was enjoyable at first, but after awhile I didn't really care. I also expected this to be a bit more shocking/scandalous than it was. I'm glad I read it, though, and I'll definitely see the movie.
