Mini Review: Attempting Elizabeth by Jessica Grey

Attempting Elizabeth - Jessica Grey

My rating: 1.5 stars out of 5 stars

The premise of this story caught my attention from the second I read it. Jane Austen, Lizzy and Mr. Darcy and experiencing the story? Sign me up, please! However, I have to admit that I wasn’t thoroughly impressed by how it was done.

My biggest problem with the book was the main character Kelsey. Kelsey is not a very likeable character. I found her to be childish, immature, and stubborn. Some of the stuff she would say or do, either out loud or her internal dialogue really turned me off from her. There many times that I had to stop reading because I was cringing and wanted to avoid her screw things up.

Maybe if Kelsey was written a different way, I would have enjoyed the book a lot more. The premise had a lot of potential and I feel like I would have liked to have seen it happen again with a different protagonist.
