Enjoyed this more than I thought - the characters were so vivid and I really enjoyed the epistolary nature of the letter writing. I think that Elizabeth's story as the central arc really fell apart after Sidney suggested Juliet use it -- was that the point? And felt that it all wrapped up a little too quickly. Thought they handled the romance aspect quite well, expect the rush at the end.

One of my favorite books!! I read this in a day, it is so charming and well written. I love the way the story unfolds through letters sent back and forth between different characters.
