Longbourn - Jo Baker

You know, I might have really liked this book if it stood alone and didn't touch one of my favorite books of all time. SInce I really could not expect it too add to what the original brought and since, quite honestly, I am uninterested in Lizzie's 'courses' or the sweat ground into Jane's gown, and since the book was subtly, but relentlessly sapping the joy out of my vision of Pride & Prejudice, I bagged the thing.


For what it's worth, I thought the writing was decent and the fault probably mostly my own.


Damn purists.
