I went into Austenland hoping for a fun and lighthearted book It delivered35 starsLike the main character Jane Hayes I am also a fan of Pride and Predjudice I read this book by Jane Austen at an early age and have loved historical romance since then When I saw friends on this site reading Austenland earlier this year I had to check it outJane Hayes is 32 single and has problems staying in relationships She s obsessed with Mr Darcy and has unrealistic expectations for men Her rich great aunt finds out about her obsession and pays for an all inclusive trip to an estate in Great Britain called Pembrook ParkPembrook Park reenacts the lifestyle back in the 1800s with full dress manners balls and servants Jane cannot break character and must interact with gentleman and other ladies during this time periodIs everyone acting or is anyone real in this Darcy obsessed place And that s where Jane starts having issues It looks like she loves New York City then she thought She s getting bored with Whist walking around the gardens and embroideryThe dialogue was good the romance was fun and this was a uick book to read I will definitely read the second book in this series because I enjoyed how Shannon Hale weaved this funny and uirky romance set during the Regency times

Austenland

CHARACTERS Austenland DOWNLOAD é Austenland 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 beueaths her a trip to an English res. I am a Pride and Prejudice snob I only like the BBC version with Colin Firth as Mr Darcy and Jennifer Ehle as Elizabeth Bennett While there are parts of the newer shorter harried and nuance free Hollywood version I enjoy like the supposed to be prettiest sister Jane who is actually much prettier than the actress in the BBC version every time I ve watched it which I grant is only twice I feel angry afterwards First Kiera Knightly is NOT Elizabeth Bennett Elizabeth Bennett does not smile a ridiculous smile showing her bottom teeth all the time And she is not flat chested I mean come onwe re talking about the girl who woos Mr Darcy With those low cut gowns in style I m guessing there was a little bit of oomph necessary to catch his eye That and a pair of fine eyes Mostly though the entire movie is rushed The actors spit out their lines in Gil Girls fashion important scenes are entirely cut out and then two minutes are devoted to watching Kiera Knightly spin on a swing FrustratingAnyways my point is and I do have one that there is only one good movie adaptationand it s six hours long and only strays and not really even strays just leaves out a few minor details slightly from the book So when the main character in Austenland Jane loved this movie as much as me I knew I could appreciate her32 year old Jane single and relationship challenged is obsessed with Mr Darcythe dreamy Colin Firth who walks across his magnificent grounds in a wet shirt after diving into a pond you know the scene The Colin FirthI mean Mr Darcy who beams at Elizabeth while she s turning pages for his sister Georgiana at the piano you know this scene too After her rich great aunt comes to visit her and subseuently finds her two disc DVDs hidden behind a houseplant Jane is surprised when she receives a call following her aunt s death from the probate attorney Instead of money her aunt leaves her an all expense paid for trip to an exclusive British resort where Jane will spend three weeks living the Regency period lifestyle in an attempt to fulfill and also hopefully expunge her Darcy obsessionI found the beginning of this book to be annoying Jane is too nervous and melodramatic and not all that likable For starters I have no idea why anyone would be ashamed of owning Pride and Prejudice Houseplants Please I m thinking of fashioning my set up with a chain and wearing it around my neck See I m a true fanHowever the three weeks she spends at Pembrook Park a NetherfieldPemberly esue manor with servants who can t speak to her empire wasted gowns gentleman that are actors or are they turns about the room walks on the grounds and a ball are simply fantastic The situations are entertaining the plot pleasantly twisty and the ending satisfyingShannon Hale writes a light hearted fantasy romance that is sure to please even the snobbiest Jane Austen fans As a warning do not expect a Jane Austen book While Hale does a fair job mimicking some of the dialogue the novel is thoroughly modern and much less subtle It is a romancetherefore extremely unlikely to be true Regardless when I turned the last page I had a smile on my face and said out loud That was fun

I can t believe I just gave one star to a Shannon Hale book Never thought that would happenReview originally posted hereI really like Shannon Hale s books And I love Jane Austen It has taken me this long to get around to reading Shannon Hale s Austenland because I had a suspicion I might be disappointed The book is a light uick read perfect for summer reading If you are fan of romantic comedy either in chick lit or chick flick form then you might enjoy it If you are a Jane Austen fanit is going to depend on what type of Jane Austen fan you are If you are in the camp that loves her books and than the books the period movie adaptations of them because they are Regency romances that are historical chick lit or flicks then you might also enjoy this Neither of these things being true about me I didn t In fact I have some rather major issues with it I almost feel bad about this because I do really really like Shannon Hale s other books I almost wasn t going to write a review I felt so bad but I have been stewing over this for a couple of days and just want to get some of it off my chestI had issues with Jane The same issues I have with all of the similar characters to her that seem to be cropping up and in this type of book or movie Jane is a single successful woman with a career and life sort of in New York City Yet she is a mess because she is a desperate husband hungry crazy girl Why do women keep getting portrayed like this We are meant to believe that these girls are savvy enough to graduate from college secure a job keep a job live within their means in a large metropolis and yet they can t wear high heels without at some point falling over on their bottoms How many times is that shtick going to be used I have big problems with the whole idea that a woman can not be content and completely free of desperation if she doesn t have a boyfriendhusband Each chapter of this book is introduced with a history of one of Jane s failed relationships These highlight exactly how crazy desperate she is for this kind of relationship Of course they have all failed Men tend to run screaming scared from crazy womenIrony Jane is exactly the sort of woman Jane Austen was making fun with her books Because that is what her books are not romantic frolics in period gowns but social satires At first I thought maybe the irony was intentional And it may have been but it fell fall short of its mark if it was There is one point when Jane has an epiphany and realizes that she is not Elizabeth Bennet but like Mrs Bennet I expected things to turn around maybe and that she would become than she was but the change that occurred wasn t one that had me believing in its longevity While the Jane that leaves Austenland has confidence and has convinced herself she was not looking for a Mr Darcy duplicate she never convinced me she was cured In fact the end makes it abundantly clear that she s not More confident less desperate but given where she started she still has a long way to go Except she got her storybook ending so where is the motivation to grow It was so frustratingThe frustration was probably greater for me because I know Shannon Hale can write strong female characters better than this The girls in her Books of Bayern amazing Same goes for the girls in Princess Academy Actually Shannon Hale can just write better than this period Honestly if
