Customer ReviewsSee All
I've read this book before, but enjoyed reading it again. It's an easy read once you become accustomed to the style of writing and the language. Happy endings all around, the literary version of a "chick flick"!
Firstly, for all the people who are saying that this book is sexist, and has perfect grammar in it, IT WAS WRITTEN IN THE 19th CENTURY! Over 2 hundred years ago! The world has changed a lot since then . It was actually very ahead of its time. Secondly, although the language does take a bit of getting used to, the book is really interesting. So, really there is not much to complain about.
Missing lines of text
Something wrong with the book the top line of each page is missing. So it's hard to read.
