I understand the point of view of the other reviewers and I can concede this is not as engaging as Pride & Prejudice itself; BUT, I also have to point out, it doesn't even try to be P&P!
I mean, seriously, have those reviewers read the blurb before buying the book?!
A huge part of P&P appeal is the verbal clashing between Lizzie and Darcy, I know, I'm a huge fan too.
But, a couple of times, while rereading P&P, I wondered "what if he hadn't said she wasn't handsome enough? what if they had liked each other at first sight?", and this book is the answer to those questions.
Is it my favourite JA fan-fiction? No; but it's also not my least favourite.
It's a relaxing read, perfect for when we need a smooth romance.
I recommend it.
