    Worth the Read

    For anyone who enjoys reading a book with a simple plot, interesting and relatalbe characters, and a happy ending,this book is perfect. The writing style was easy to follow and I found myself loving the main character Jane. She reminded me of myself. I liked how independent she was and how she did not seem to really need anyone else to be content in life. I also liked how caring she was towardss everyone she knew.

    Lifestyles of the rich and shallow

    Okay, but not great, seems like the perfect rating for this book. I din't hate it didn't love it. Without having read Jane Austen's Persuiasion, on which it is loosely based, I could still get an 'Austenesque' feeling and could see how the story, writing, dialogue were all trying to mimic Austen's style and that was interesting - as compared to the characters, who were harder to appreciate as the book is full of the some of the most shallow characters around. They are so shallow, they just don't seem believable in the 21st century.... That said, an easy read and sort of a 'trying to be highbrow' chick-lit offering.
