This book I had read sometime late last year. It was a joy the first time I read it, but this time it ran a little slow. The book is over 400 pages to read. So if you’re looking for a book that will take a little time to read, this is it.

This is one of a few books I found while searching on Amazon.com. The first time I read it, it took me a very short time and seemed to run smoothly. The second time around it was very slow moving. The book has a very enjoyable plot and I think Miss Austen would have approved the ending result. It uses many of the beloved characters that readers were first introduced in Pride & Prejudice.
I don’t recommend anyone reading it more then one time, but would look forward to a film version of this book. It is a great ending to the Pride & Prejudice and recommend Jane Austen fans to read it. I however would not recommend it took folks who have a very difficult time reading books, since the writing was a little bit slow in some part. Towards the middle and the ending of the book the plot began to thicken. It had a satisfying ending.
