1.0 out of 5 stars A Terrible Read, November 13, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Drive and Determination (Paperback)
I purchased this book last friday. It was delivered on Monday morning. By Monday evening I was throwing the book away. The writing is horrible and the characterization is completely wrong. It may have been based on Pride and Prejudice, but the author completely missed the heart of the book. To put it bluntly, this book was cheesy. It had the feeling of a thirteen year old trying to rewrite a classic. The basic characters are represented, but their spirits weren't. The twists to the plot were unnecessary. All in all, I want my $15 back. I wouldn't have even paid $1 for it.

Agree completely! The writing was horrible. Either use modern language or Jane's language - not an awkward combination of both, as this book uses. The book seemed very unprofessional in terms of grammatical errors and the lack of full justification of the margins. I couldn't even get past the first few chapters.
