Book Review: The Independence of Miss Mary Bennet

Don't let the cover of this book fool you. This is one lousy book that piggy-backed on our beloved "Pride and Prejudice". The characters in this book are totally unlikable. They all spoke in a strange way, as if they were some lower class people in England pretending to be wealthy upper class. Mary Bennet didn't have a big role in "Pride and Prejudice" but she didn't have a major part in this book either. This book talked mostly about everything else but Mary's independence because she was locked up during most of the book. This book is very hard for me to read because it has a very bad plot that seems to be too wacky for that period of England. This book is literally an insult to Jane Austen.

This one was awful. Truly horrible. The author said she wrote it to "tweak the noses of the literati". I think she succeeded. She obviously has no affection for the original story or characters. Mr. Darcy would have never done what she had him do.

And scammed by a book? Twilight. So much potential, such a poorly written book.

I follow in google reader.

Holly, so Twilight is a bad book too? What don't you like about it? I haven't read this book yet:P. I watched the movie of the first book and thought it was so-so so. I don't think I will watch another Twilight movie or read the book.
