The great thing about working in a library is that I find myself picking up books that I usually wouldn’t.

I really have no explanation for why I brought this one home. I thought at first it was a what happens after Pride & Prejudice. It isn’t. It is an alternate version of events with added sex.
This is exactly what you might think it is. So, if that is what you are interested in, then by all means pick this up, I’m not interested in it. And the only reason I finished it is that I started it on a train journey and so got through 90% of it because I had nothing else to read. And then, seeing as I’d gotten that far, well, I figured I may as well finish it off.
Anyway, as you can guess I’m not going to recommend this. I skimmed quite a lot of it. But what I did actually read was, well, a bit rubbish. None of the characters are in any way similar to Austen’s. And none of them behave as they should given the setting.
And, I couldn’t be bothered finding other reviews of it. Laziness, you understand.
