One of my favourite books ever is Jane Austen's wonderful "Pride and prejudice" I've read it at least 20 times. However, I wonder if Phyllis Furley has read it even once. The characters don't even seem to be the same as in Jane Austen's classic. They behave inconsistently, the plot is tedious, the surroundings are boring and the whole book is a total snooze. The Darcys' marriage seems unpassionate, even loveless at times, and incredibly uninteresting.
English is not my mother tongue, but even so it was blatantly obvious to me that Mrs Furley's writing was not good.
I've read a couple of sequels, but this was the worst ever. I could hardly finish it and the only reason I did, is I wanted to see how she would end the horror.
