NOTE TO THOSE WHO HATE PLOT-SPOILERS (who does???): It's kind of obvious -- DON'T READ A LONG REVIEW -- I learned early on NOT to read them for just that reason. Just look at the amount of stars -- if people liked it, they liked it. Done. If you DO start to read a review, you usually know if its a plot-spoiler before you get to "The butler did it!" So stop reading as soon as you know. Just my humble suggestion...

    Pass This One By

    I didn't finish this one. The writing is rather junior-high, as if meant for teenagers. The characters are one-note and caricaturish. I was never drawn in enough to bother. Spend your money on something like "the Man Who Loved Jane Austen" instead.

    It was ok....

    I struggled to finish this for some reason. I love Jane Austen books so I like to read spinoffs and retellings occassionally. This one was just kinda too quirky for me and I lost interest multiple times. I dont think I would recommend, even for Austen lovers. Maybe if you live in Austin because that is a lot of what is talked about, all the local smocal stuff.

    Main character a bit of a snooze

    I've absolutely read worse, but this novel has little to recomend it. Also, the writing itself is sophmoric and...dull.
