Well, it kept me entertained even if it had it's annoyances. It picked up for me about halfway through. Lucy was my favorite character. She was fun! Jane, well, a bit boring. I hated, HATED the Charlotte Bronte twist.(show spoiler)
The whole Byron/Brian thing got old really fast. Jane couldn't seem to make up her mind how she really felt about him. She had moments where she'd stand up to him, and then not.
Not a bad book and might appeal to Jane Austen fans. I, personally, am glad I read it, but probably won't be picking up the next.
