Not DLS but worth a read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Presumption of Death (Paperback)
Jill made a really good effort with Thrones, Dominations, but this is definitely not as good. The plot is nicely thought through, the settings are good and the characters are well-rounded. Harriet and Peter act as you might expect, and we know a little more about their lives together. But the conversation is all wrong. It's not as clever and witty as DLS, some the language isn't quite right, and everyone makes everything much too obvious and belabours every point. The charm of DLS is somewhat lost along the way, and it's quite obvious where passages from other DLS outputs (letters etc) have been inserted. Overall, worthy of a read, just to keep an eye on how the Wimseys might have turned out, but keep your expectations under control or you'll be sadly disappointed.
