This book does the same thing that another retelling I read of a Jane Austen novel from the man's point of view does -- provides too much detail about shit that does not matter to the story. Why did this retelling need to be broken up into THREE novels? Ridiculous. I was listening to the audiobook version, and I must have forgotten to sample it before buying because the narrator's voice was awful. I was extremely bored the few hours I managed to make it through before deciding to call it quits.
