I'm a PhD theatre student who loves not proofreading my reviews (sorry) because I have to do enough of that in school. :)

    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.

    Story

    I should begin this by saying, not only is this fluff, this is for fans of the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice and Bridget Jones, not necessarily all Austen fans will like it. Jane compares herself to Lizzie and Emma and other Austen heroines but sadly, she's more like a mix of Jane Bennet and Mrs. Bennet - cute and accommodating just desperate for a man.

    I laughed quite a bit at Jane's adventure and her plucky sidekick, enjoying the intrgue and disgruntled by the treatment of her as a lower-paying guest (which I didn't quite understand because her trip was funded by a wealthy relative - seems she could have purchased the better package for Jane).

    Good fun and fluff. Oh, and WAY better than the movie. Enjoy!!
