5.0 out of 5 stars A story within a story of another story, 9 Dec. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Lions And Liquorice (Paperback)
It's That Woman from Baltimore's fault (the reviewer likely above mine). Turns out she's a writer I like, and she was quite happy with this recursive treatment of Pride & Prejudice. I bought it on her recommendation.
It was "good enough" until I arrived at page 171, wherein the beauty of the language suddenly opened up a view into the character's mind, and I wanted MORE.
I admit to confusion over the story within the story, until I ascertained the setup.
I was not disappointed in the parallels to Pride and Prejudice--it was very nicely done in a modern setting, and I will foist it on many of my friends, unlike some "sequels" or "in the style of" books. I even liked it after I figured in postage to the US and currency conversion rates.
