I read the 1st 30 pgs and enjoyed the 1st Mary Bennet section. The Creature section was too dark for me and I gave up on the book. I might try reading the Mary Bennet scenes again.

Mary Bennet, Mary Bennet, Mary Bennet, Mary Bennet, and Mary Bennet!


I read it last night and give it 3.5-3.75(I have a few minor “quibbles”, there were a few typos etc..) He is giving a talk at BPL Monday night @6pm (thank you Grace Fleming for finding that!!) in the lovely Newsfeed Cafe.

I’m an oracle? That’s definitely, definitely not a joke at my expense . . . . Thanks Edward Scheinman, for bringing on the Jane Austen fun this week! I can’t wait to read your new book, Camp Austen.
