2.0 out of 5 stars Disppointing for Weir, 8 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Marriage Game (Kindle Edition)
I've read all Weir's other fiction books and loved them all. Been completely unable to put them down. Through her I had fallen in love with a young Elizabeth, Eleanor of Aquataine, Katherine Plantagentant and the Grey Sisters. And yet this book seems to completely fall flat. I found myself skimming over large chunks of it just because it was completely repetitive and added zero to the story while major plots were glossed over. For example, the courtship of Robert and Lettice was completely neglected and since Robert is meant to be the other main character thought they could of given it a bit more depth, there doesn't seem to be any explination as to why Robert chose to marry Lettice despite knowing it would incur the wrath of Elizabeth. There must of been some depth to their feelings but that is totally unexplored.

The characters are dull and unlikable with Elizabeth just being demanding, spoilt and playing games all the time (ok I know she was a little like that but she must of had some redeeming qualities), Robert is seen as niave and nothing to offer but his good looks while Lettice is just a screeching brat.

Please Alison go back to your traditional writing styles.

I couldn't agree more, am very disappointed. I too wanted more depth and less bedroom romps.
