contrived, boring, pointless
I'm struggling through this book. Ms. Collins introduces too many characters with little character building. Too much liberal politics woven into each and every chapter. She steam roles through subplots (because there appears to be no single plot) Jane Austin was able to pull you into the scenery with her picturesque descriptions. She made the heart of the heroine your heart with her descriptions of thoughts and emotions and she nurtured our love affair with the 18th century with her dialogs and letters. None of that here! Theres no intimate, realstic and subtle dialog to assist in the fleshing out of characters that should reflect the culture that was England in the 1800s. She throws out current events of the times seemingly only to prove that she did her historical research. Each event mentioned is irrelevant to the story. Writing a sequel to a respected authors work is never a good idea, but this author and editor alike should be ashamed.

I was very disappointed with this book and it takes alot to disappoint me when it comes to Darcy and Elizabeth. There is no plot, hardly any speaking in this book. It is just really boring.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
