    • Me parece una novela interesante para tenerla en cuenta como embrión de las otras novelistas excelentes que vendrán más tardes, pero la veo inmadura en relación a otras novelas del XIX.


    • Es una novela epistolar muy divertida, situada a fines del XVIII. Era la escritora preferida de Austen y no es de extrañar. Veo en ambas unos diálogos irónicos muy elaborados.


    • No es una historia maravillosa, pero está bien. Sin embargo,es imprescindible para conocer mejor en qué se inspiraba Jane Austen.

    • Gran libro de escritora favorita de Jane Austen, se nota muchísimo los tintes de humor que también utiliza Jane Austen, libro precioso que hay que tener en todas las estanterías, destacar la edición del libro y sus ilustraciones, bueno e impecable como todo lo de editorial dépoca
