There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There were redeeming elements in the book. The identity swap engineered a humorous commentary on society's treatment of people based on their social status.
I loved Phoebe''s reaction to a first kiss manoeuvre by Ned. This brought back my interest as she showed some of the spark she had in the prologue.
It took me a long time to warm to Ned. And I wished Phoebe had more gumption at times. That''s just me. Other readers are bound to like the characters more than I did.
I liked that the author included notes at the end referring to her historical research. That research was well used in the book and sometimes in a cleverly, humorous way that had me laughing.
The book is certainly very well written and I can see this author has talent. I would like to try more of her books.
***Note:*** The sequel to this novel, "The Lie and The Lady" has now been published. 5 Stars - I loved it! It is about Turner and Letitia from this novel. I think I easily loved them in the sequel because I felt I knew them well from "The Game and The Governess." You don't need to read The Game and the Governess to enjoy the sequel, but I think it enhances the reading experience. So I recommend reading The Game and The Governess first if you can.

Perhaps this novel was written for a younger reader as the plot and characterisations are quite juvenile and left me grinding my teeth, stubbornly reading to the end because I paid money for it! :)
Personajes bien descritos, con fondo. Relaciones profundas, incluidas las de los secundarios, que son importantes.
Tiene mucho más de lo que se cuenta en el resumen.
Lo recomiendo, sin duda.
Then you have Turner his miserable friend who just seems really mailicious as a friend and just plain mean. One example is when he humiliates a poor eight year old girl with demanding she knows her timetables in front of her whole family brining down the wrath of the father and mother. He had only just said hello to her !
I couldn't finish this book because I couldn't care less what happened to these selfish people.
