    I did not enjoy this as much as I had hope to Attending a Ball I had hoped to read about a ball and dancing scenes, as the title led me to believe Unfortunately, this short story is about the preparations for a ball, and not the ball itself The writing style was extremely simple, repetitive and even a bit juvenile It felt like I was reading a children s book, about a girl who was very excited to go to London to get a new ball gown and matching slippers, and be admired by everyone I did not enjoy this as much as I had hope to Attending a Ball I had hoped to read about a ball and dancing scenes, as the title led me to believe Unfortunately, this short story is about the preparations for a ball, and not the ball itself The writing style was extremely simple, repetitive and even a bit juvenile It felt like I was reading a children s book, about a girl who was very excited to go to London to get a new ball gown and matching slippers, and be admired by everyone thereafter It s not like Lizzy Bennet to be that excited about a trip to London to go...

    What was I thinking I considered 2.5 stars, but that rounds to 3 soI left it at 3 stars The title should have been Preparing for a Ball The whole story was just that preparation for a ball Or perhaps, Deciding What to Wear to a Ball or simply I Need a New Dress Yeah, that would work.I should have lookedclosely at the reviews and ratings Even though this 44 page short was free, it s a prequel to Darcy Chooses which is a lot a lotexpensive.Very little information is given What was I thinking I considered 2.5 stars, but that rounds to 3 soI left it at 3 stars The title should have been Preparing for a Ball The whole story was just that prep...

    This second edition of Attending a Ball was issued after the author decided to modernize her writing To be honest, I saw little to no difference from the original edition, and the few changes that I did see seemedAustenesque than modern Turns of phrase like What say you, Jane and was wont to treat her thus have aAustenesque feel to them then modern Also, I don t think Lydia s years should be referred to as five and ten Even Austen herself would say fifteen One This second edition of Attending a Ball was issued after the author decided to modernize her writing To be honest, I saw little to no difference from the original edition, and the few changes that I did see seemedAustenesque than modern Turns of phrase like What say you, Jane and was wont to treat her thus have aAustenesque feel to them then modern Also, I don t think Lydia s years should be referred to as five and ten Even Austen herself would say fifteen One and twenty ...

    As is always the case with short stories, the story sometimes feels a little rushed and the characters underdeveloped, but I am looking forward to reading a full length story which allows for this development, and besides, these prequels are exactly that prequels which are just preparing us for the main story I do feel that this short story has set the story up well in preparation for the full length novel, especially with the cliff hanger ending.This was a short story which covers the time As is always the case with short stories, the story sometimes feels a little rushed and the characters underdeveloped, but I am looking forward to reading a full length story which allows for this development, and besides, these prequels are exactly that prequels which are just preparing us for the main story I do feel that this short story has set the story up well in preparation for the full length novel, especially with the cliff hanger ending.This was a short story which covers the time before the start of Gianna Thomas s new novel, from Lizzy s point of view.It was enjoyable to seeabout each of the Bennet sisters Lydia and Kitty as they become excited about the prospect of a ball at Netherfield and then the news that the militia are to be quartered at Meryton Jane and Lizzy are also interested in this news about the militia but areso about their new neighbour, a Mr Bingley, who they look forward to meeting Mary is not interested in either of these events in the sligh...

    This Pride and Prejudice short story is a prequel and therefore NOT a standalone story Details events before the Netherfield Ball but the Bennets have yet to meet the guests at Netherfield It was an okay story.

    I feel like lately I ve been harder that usual on my PP variations This one is very well meaning And if some continuity issues were explained then I probably would have rated it higher First off, this is a prequel to the main story that Thomas has written, which might explain for some of the variations in cannon.Before I delve into that, I really enjoyed the characterizations of both Mr and Mrs Bennet Mrs Bennet might be the flighty interfering mama we all know, but I enjoyed reading I feel like latel...
