Austenland by Shannon Hale – Mini Book Review

Title: Austenland

Series: Austenland #1

Author: Shannon Hale

Genre/Themes: Austen Inspired, Light Fiction

Blurb from Goodreads

Jane is a young New York woman who can never seem to find the right man-perhaps because of her secret obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of “Pride and Predjudice.”

When a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-obsessed women, however, Jane’s fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become more real than she ever could have imagined.

Is this total immersion in a fake Austenland enough to make Jane kick the Austen obsession for good, or could all her dreams actually culminate in a Mr. Darcy of her own?

My Review

So many people like me who love Jane Austen just can’t seem to get enough of her writing, and all things Mr Darcy.

This simpering piece of banality though?

Do yourself a favour.

  1. It’s probably more entertaining to read Pride & Prejudice fan fiction than this book 😉 But I agree, Hannargh, the movie was really fun!
