To Conquer Mr. Darcy

To Conquer Mr. Darcy - Abigail Reynolds UGH I hate Jane Austen especially Pride and Prejudice. I tried, I really tried to read this book with an open mind but there were too many references to the original work for me to get into this romance novel. Not to mention, it reaffirmed that I simply dislike regency or historical romances. This books isn't badly written or even unsexy, but it just wasn't for me.

Mark Twain: "I haven't any right to criticise books, and I don't do it except when I hate them. I often want to criticise Jane Austen, but her books madden me so that I can't conceal my frenzy from the reader; and therefore I have to stop every time I begin. Everytime I read 'Pride and Prejudice' I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone." - Letter to Joseph Twichell, 13 September 1898
