After reading the summary I was expecting a engaging, fun, love story. However, this book was anything but. While the idea was great, the story itself was horrendous. The characters were hardly thought through and the pointless and bland dialogue was a complete let down. The sex scenes were strange and out of place. I kept waiting for it to get good, only to find that it didn't...
To be fair, I did find the food descriptions somewhat interesting, but I'm not the type of person who enjoys listening about food for hours. Also, some points were humorous, but they were few and very far between. Overall, it was definately not worth the time or money.
This is definatly a MUST listen/read. Although I wouldn't consider it to be a great, deep piece of litrature, it really doesn't need or try to be. It's a feel good book that will most certainly make you do just that down to the very last minute. Jane Austen fan or not, Austenland is a book that every woman can identify with. If you're looking for a fun, addicting book I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
