I enjoyed the author's imaginative version of Pride and Prejudice from the servant's point of view. It was interesting to see how the strictures of the class system influenced so much of a person's life, and the lower class a person was, the less likely the choices or opportunity to improve upon it.

I really enjoyed this book - it fit so seamlessly into the original and really made you consider the characters anew. Taking to the March bookcrossing meeting.

My husband got annoyed with me when I had to stay up late to finish the book - harder when in a trailer. I really enjoyed this perspective and all the connections to P & P. Thanks for the great holiday read!

Picked up this book at the Calgary BookCrossing August meet-up. I'm one of the rare people who haven't read Pride and Prejudice, but this sounded like a neat premise so hopefully it all makes sense to me.

Having only seen the infamous BBC version of Pride and Prejudice, that was my only reference going in, but it was good enough for me to enjoy this book. Because the book isn't about the Bennets; it's about the people who serve them and who are hardly mentioned in the original book. They have their own issues and troubles to deal with while Elizabeth and Darcy are exchanging their verbal spars. So it was a fun glimpse into life as a servent in Regency England.

Though, James is the bastard son of Mr. Bennet and Mrs. Hill? Um, sure, why not.

Fun look at a different side of Pride and Prejudice. Loved the story within a story angle.
