    Story
    (363)

    Jane Hayes is a seemingly normal young New Yorker, but she has a secret. Her obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, is ruining her love life: no real man can compare. But when a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become realer than she ever could have imagined.

    ElChangoPelon says: "Fun read"
    "Not just another wannabe"
    Overall

    I love all things Pride and Prejudice, and this is no exception. I went in with low expectations, because of the numerous attempts to recreate the wheel, but was surprised to find that these were not just Darcy and Elizabeth revisited. The characters were fleshed out to be not just the same retread territory, but with a spin. Definitely worth the book credit.

    Story

    What did an independent, spirited woman do when her stud farm was deep in debt? Marry for money? Never! Instead, Courtney set off for Sydney in search of a silent business partner.

    April says: "Irritating Accent"
    "Distracting accent"
    Overall

    I couldn't get into this book at all with the horrible accents given to the main characters. I listened till the end, but only so I wouldn't feel obligated to try and read it again later. The whole story just seemed flat.

  • Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 19 mins)

    Story
    (126)

    After nursing a broken engagement with Jane Austen novels and Absolut, Courtney Stone wakes up and finds herself not in her Los Angeles bedroom, or even in her own body, but inside the bedchamber of a woman in Regency England. Who but an Austen addict like herself could concoct such a fantasy?

    Amazon Customer says: "Delightful"
    "Lost at the end..."
    Overall

    I really enjoyed the story, but somewhere near the end I got confused, and that led the book to not be as good as it could have been.
