    Laura Patterson is an American exchange student in Rome who, fed up with being inexpertly groped by her young Italian beaus, decides there's only one sure-fire way to find a sensual man: date a chef. Then she meets Tomasso, who's handsome, young, and cooks in the exclusive Templi restaurant. Perfect. Except, unbeknownst to Laura, Tomasso is in fact only a waiter at Templi; it's his shy friend Bruno who is the chef.

    Overall

    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.

    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"
    "Addicting"
    Overall

    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.
