Very disappointing, 3 Jan 2014
I have loved Ms McCullough books on Ancient Rome, so was excited to see she had written "a sequel" to Pride and Prejudice, especially as the heroine was Mary Bennet. I have read a great many P & P sequels but there has been hardly any mention of Mary. I was so disappointed as my beloved P & P characters were almost unrecognisable and I think Jane Austen would have been horrified to see what has been done to them. I thoroughly disliked the book and whereas Ms McCullough's research on Ancient Rome was first rate, I couldn't say the same about her portrayal of the Regency period. I wish I had never read it.
