Terrible

Mature content but written for a 10 year old. A mash up of Austen classics like pride and prejudice but completely butchered

    Okay

    I think its a Texas Bluebonnet, but there are a lot of grammer errors and the plot was unfocused.

    3.5 Stars

    I thoroughly enjoyed much of this book.  It had some witty banter, interesting characters, and romance.  Although it has been said to be like Pride and Prejudice, there was also a Cinderella feel to it.  And how could I not love that one of the main character's name was "Lord Boring".  I laughed almost every time I read his name.  And the town in which they live was called "Lesser Hoo".  I felt like it might look like something from Dr. Seuss.  Of course, it didn't.  

    However, I did not like the way the book resolved.  I felt there should have been more dialogue and feeling expressed.  I wanted more romance at the end.  Oh well, I can't get everything I want.

    Warnings: None

    I would let my 12 and 15 year old daughters read this book.

    I enjoyed this book. My favorite parts were the descriptions of the castle. I laughed out loud! Some reviewers say this book is great for 12 year olds, and I think a 12 year old would enjoy it. But I'm 28 and I, too, thought it was fun. I didn't notice any grammar errors. There must not have been enough to hinder the enjoyment of the reading. It might not be classic literature, but I don't think it claims to be. It's a fun, clean story, which is rare these days.
