Review: I didn’t like this story at all, it was just weird honestly so weird. A young poor girl sent to love in her rich aunt and uncles mansion being raised with her cousins where she then falls in love with her cousin only to painfully watch him fall in love with the rich neighbour.
It was apparent from the instant she showed up that she was going to fall in love with him but wow this was so weird and I wish I’d of known what the story was actually about before reading it.
Though I’m ususally a fan of these classics and I love that they are created in an easier way and retelling the story to get kids to read classics and enjoy the stories. I really wasn’t a fan of this one the story itself was just so weird and I wasn’t a fan.
Most of the story nothing much seemed to happen just the rich people sitting around talking, they are doing a play until they are no longer allowed to, looking after a sick cousin and it was all so blah to me which is such a shame and then it was just weird. I just wasn’t personally a fan of this story.
But alas I may not have enjoyed this one but it’s a classic and I’m sure many people love this story. I still think it was done well for the easy classics line but I just think the story isn’t very good in general to me.
