Disappointing

by ainmeile on Nov 5, 2009

I must first say that I am a great fan of a well written Regency romance, and having started in my early days by reading the entire works of Georgette Heyer I have high standards as regards the quality of the storytelling and the style and language used in setting the scene and evoking the feeling of the Regency era. I have to say that although the basic storyline was quite good, Julia Quinn failed to create a convincing cast of characters. Her use of modern English or even worse modern American idiom was jarring and also very annoying, how lazy can she be as a writer not to use language and terminology appropriate to that time. Although writing a romance nowadays is far more sexually explicit , and most readers would expect and enjoy these scenes( myself included) I found that overall I was annoyed and disappointed with this book. And as she has written quite a few in this series I was also disappointed that I will not now be reading any more of them! I will keep looking to find a writer who can create a more engaging and believable set of characters.

Good Book

by stonerlp500 on Apr 23, 2007

I expected this book to be good when I bought it and once again I wasn't disapointed. Not only is Julia Quinn a good writer but it seems like every book in the "Avon Romance" line is great. Its not a book that you'll read once and put down, you'll read it again and again. Buy it!
