Thanks for the great review. I'm tempted to read this to see how ridiculous it really is

Through your review, I find a story much similar to the book called Storm and Silence, it is really interesting. They both share the tale of women pretending to be men in a strive for social equality in England. Your review is intriguing.

Thank you for commenting and leaving the tip about that book. I'll definitely check it out since it seems like my kinda story :)

Great review. As a reader of Austen, I think I would enjoy this ridiculous take on the period novel.

I find it ridiculous to have a female character steal a male character identity. So is the book. Thank you for creating time and share with us the review of the book.

Sounds funny. I loved how you compared it to Mulan. I love that movie and when you discribed the book I was immediately taken back to the movie. If I read this book, I feel that I will see Mulan instead of a young woman pretending to be a man. But, either way it is still funny. Thank you for the review.

A happily-ever-after kind of a story always piques my interest. Thanks for the nice review.
