In any event, the book itself was humorous. Fielding did a good job of keeping the "diary" voice. This to me is classic chick-lit. The most immature, neurotic, self-obsessed, desperate thirty-something who can't seem to do anything right suddenly finds love of perfect-match who was right under her nose, and also super rich.
yea. i get the echoing of pride and prejudice, minus the whole depth of character, plot, social criticism, and well, decent prose.
if the character wasn't everything i hate about chick-lit characters it'd get three stars, but she's just so vapid and get's the dude for no real reason other than "because that's what happens in P&P." can we please do something else now?
