Nothing Too Impressive Here
And you know, I can't really say it didn't live up to its promise. The magical element was kind of weird and I didn't really get the point but it was also extremely unobtrusive - not really changing society or humanity at all in any way that mattered. The writing wasn't great, but I can't say I really expected more. But... the romance! My gosh, I don't even know if I can call it romance. Well I guess I can, because the guy liked her, there was a *tiny* drop of angst, there were some subtle hints, they didn't get together till the end... but 1) it was really badly done and 2) there was another guy involved the whole time! who she liked! and who seemed to like her! and who didn't turn out to be bad in the end! I don't know, it was just weird and badly done. Totally not enjoyable. Also there were all these weird elements of different Jane Austen plots mixed in and it kind of confused everything. Basically, concept was decent, execution pretty darn bad. Oh well, can't win 'em all.
Food: Like I said, decent concept, terrible execution... raw a/t... raw chicken i suppose - i do seem to use the raw metaphor a lot, don't I? I really don't like raw food :)
