Anyone who doesn't appreciate the wit, humour and social commentary in Jane Austen's writing and thinks she is only telling a romantic story about some rather silly people.
Not write it - leaving the possibility that someone could write a sequel which does Jane Austin justice
Marian did an OK job with very poor material. I doubt a real Austen enthusiast would take on the narration of this boring drivel
All of it!
Jane Austen knew that Pride and Prejudice would be a popular romance and she wasn't proud of this book but her ability allows us to read a satisfying romance without the usual feeling that we've overdosed on jelly babies - more like a delicious creme brulee.
I love a good romance as well as the next person but this is not even a good romance.
While Jane tells her stories through brilliantly phrased conversation Shannon uses the endless boring reflections of her lead character. Mary's reinvention is dealt with in a few sentences and then the story and character development is largely told through her thoughts and these are dull, repetitive and not at all amusing.
