I would give 3 and half stars if it would be possible. Some parts of this book were really boring and I almost stopped reading it, because it was really hard to keep reading it. I am happy that I finished it, because towards the end it got better. I hate Anne as a character, she is mean and selfiss. I did not like Henry either. At the beginning I thought that Henry would be character I would like, but no, I think that he was as selfish as Anne. I felt bad for George, he did not have a change to be with the one he loved. I liked Mary but I don't understand why she always were nice to Anne even though Anne was a bitch most of the time. The book got better when William came into the picture.I liked the book better than the movie.
