But the world around them is changing, and the new questions that arise about things they’ve always accepted as fact just may change them as well. Readers who are used to new fast and gritty style of writing might be bored, but I think lovers of classics will enjoy reading For Darkness Shows the Stars. It makes it all a little lighter, which is sad because there’s really nothing that Peterfreund could do differently and still have it suit the audience.
Elliot had had enough. Want to Read saving…. Elliot is repeatedly described as having brown skin, almond-shaped eyes, and long black hair. This novel stayed true to the Spirit of Austen, took a few well-intentioned liberties that may or may not have panned out, and managed to tell a good story, too. They wear simple clothes, don’t embrace technology and are what they think “taking” care of others that are less like them. It was plain ol’ boring. She just wants to keep her Posts cared for and safe.
They went something like this: I also liked Melissa Nathan ‘s contemporary chicklit version Persuading Anniebut I loathed the change of point-of-view in the fan-fiction-like None But You. However, in ‘For Darkness Shows the Stars’, the balance of emotions is not quite so perfect.
