2.0 out of 5 stars Was it "really hard" to mind the vocabulary?, 22 Jun 2009
This review is from: The Darcys and the Bingleys (Pride & Prejudice Continues) (Paperback)
The book started with good promise, but became boring very quickly... The only good thing about it is Elisabeth Bennet whom the author managed to portray as the lively and witty young woman she is supposed to be (even though often unfashionably and un-Austenably nosy), a seemingly easy task no other P&P pre- or sequel I've read has managed to pull off... But why does she - and all the other characters, for that matter - have to speak modern American English?! If researching Regency English was too much work, a more neutral language could have been used, to spare us the uncomfortable anachronisms on every page...
