    Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict tells the parallel story of Jane Mansfield, a gentleman's daughter from Regency England who inexplicably awakens in Courtney's overly wired and morally confused modern L.A. life. For Jane, the modern world is not wholly disagreeable. She relishes the privacy, independence, even the power to earn her own money. But how is she to fathom her employer's incomprehensible dictates about "syncing a BlackBerry"?

    Overall

    I wanted to like this book. I love the premise of putting Jane Austen into the present, and I think many readers will enjoy Jane's bemusement and incomprehension of 21st-century life. I stuck with it for quite a while...perhaps what I didn't care for was that "Jane" of this book did not have the rapier wit of the real Jane of Jane Austen's novels. Perhaps it's an unfair comparison. I suggest that you listen to the free sample for a while to see if it suits you.
