This book was not up to the standards set by Jane Austen.,

This review is from: Pemberley: Or Pride and Prejudice Continued (Hardcover)
I have loved "Pride and Prejudice" for years, and was so excited to see that there existed a sequel. I was disappointed, however. The book was readable, and had I never been an Austen fan, I might have liked it just fine, but the lack of satire, the falling-back to Austen lines, made the book not my favorite. Some of the best lines or scenes were ones with references to the original.I find myself laughing out loud when I reread P&P, and this book was a nice story, but...no laughing.
