Not in the tradition of Jane

The clever repartee and wit of Austen, as well as plot progression, suspense, character development, etc. do not appear in this cliched "story" where Elizabeth's reaction to attack is a letter to Jane, repeated descriptions of getting in and out of a gondola epitomize the descriptive prose, Mr. Darcy alternates between hungry and...hungry, and the book is in its final endless hours when Elizabeth suddenly realizes something it horribly, horribly wrong (time for another letter). Concept is great, execution drivel. The narrator was also agonizingly slow, especially the first half.

Mr. Darcy, boring Vampyre

I love Jane Austin, I have a weakness for vampire romances, and I adore Mr. Darcy. These should all go together well, right? Not in this book. The first half is spent waiting for something to happen. The second half is spent wishing we could get more details about what is happening. The author sticks rigidly to Austin's style, but without the humor which made it so charming. We end up with a fairly boring travelogue punctuated by a few frightening moments and poor Lizzy wondering if she is in bad odor with Mr. Darcy. This could have been an extremely romantic, funny, sexy novel. It was not.
