I actually really liked this book! It is cheesy to the core, but I read it expecting a light hearted chick-lit book and that’s what I got. Easy read and amusing as all Austen books are.

I may be the odd one out as Jane Austen's fans are numerous. At the risk of offending I will simply say about this particular book - once is enough. The characters' feelings and emotions are flying all over the place, they seem quite juvenile so that I felt sense and sensibility were sorely lacking. Was that the intention of the author? If so, she nailed it! Having experienced this story through Audible - and I'm glad I did - I got through it, whereas if I had tried to read it I'm afraid it would take me somewhere between forever and never to get it done. Having said that, Jane Austen's writing is well worth reading.

Not one of her best. The female characters drove me slightly mad but I can sympathise with young men leading you on and then leaving you heartbroken.. Still didn't enjoy reading about it!

Sometimes I find Jane Austen's books are a bit forced at the end.
