    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

    The movie is one of my favorites, so I was so excited to learn that it was based on a book Unfortunately, this is one of the rare cases where I enjoy the moviethan the book Movie Jane was a raging Austen fangirl and just a tad pitiful, which was totally relatable and made me root for her Book Jane seemed to have her lifeor less together, so it wasn t as satisfying an experience Still a pleasant read and I totally want to visit Austenla

    I crept quietly up the dark stairway, entered my room and tried my very best to shut the door silently behind me It thudded despite my best efforts and I cringed, but Phil didn t stir in his 3 o clock in the morning slumber I sighed, relieved I felt so entirely sneaky I felt as if I had cheated and there was a sting of guilt as I looked at the distorted red figures on the alarm clock through the empty glass on the night stand Please don t

    I was so engrossed in this book I read it in an afternoon If I were still a teenager, this would be the book I d read over and over.I hate this book SPOILER ALERTWhy I mean, if it was so engrossing that I couldn t put it down, why do I hate it Because Jane Hayes, the main character, is me except that she gets to live out my fantasy and gets the happy ending only found in Austen novels.Jane is in her early 30s, in a job she likes but does not

    I read this book all the way through only because I love Jane Austen, and because the concept of the book was quirky and irresisistible It kind of felt like eating an entire bag of cotton candy I guess I just don t like chick lit, maybe But the author of this book seems to have written mostly children s books before, and this struck me as a children s book but for women And not even a well written children s book The dialogue in spots was read

    I can t believe I just gave one star to a Shannon Hale book Never thought that would happen.Review originally posted here.I 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 quick read perfect for summer reading If you are fan of romantic comedy, either in chick lit or chick flick form, then you m

    2.5 stars mostly for the Jane Austen aspect Obviously if you re not a huge Austen fan, this book will not be that amazing It sfun if you re just as obsessed with Mr Darcy as the main character ok maybe not to that extent She was really intense Some of the characters were a bit annoying and the premise is kind of silly, but the story still has enough endearing moments to make it worthwhile The book is a short, fast read But I d honestly recommend just

    Seriously, I don t even know why I bother to read any PP sequels, prequels, re tellings, or books inspired by PP They all end up being a complete and utter nonsense with the exception of Bridget Jones Diaries Austenland is no exception, unfortunately.The premise of the book is OK 33 year old Jane Hayes is single and obsessed with Pride and Prejudice Mr Darcy just like you are, admit it, otherwise you wouldn t be reading this review She inherits a 3 week

    I picked up this book at about 10 30 last night thinking that I would just read the prologue to get the basic idea and then start it tomorrow Alas it was not meant to be After about a half hour I whispered an apology to Aaron and slipped out of bed to go read in the living room After reading late into the night and a quick nap okay 5 1 2 hours I got up this morning and didn t stop until I finished it This book is so entertaining I read a lot and I have oft

    Jane Hayes is a single thirty something with a string of no good boyfriends and an unhealthy obsession with Mr Darcy from Pride and Prejudice Didn t someone already write that book, you say Banish thoughts of Bridget Jones from your mind, because Shannon Hale knows her Austen A true knowledge and love of the novels that spawned the fantasy lifts Austenland above its chick lit peers.The fabulous conceit of the novel is that there s a Regency era mansion in Eng
