‘Austenland’ by Shannon Hale – Mini Book Review

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

Yup that we do.. Can’t seem to get enough of Austen and all things 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!
