At first, I couldn’t get into Austenland. Jane was too obsessed with Mr. Darcy which was a harsh reminder of my “enduring love” of Mr. Rochester. I, however, would never attend dating service at Bronteland.
I’m glad I stuck with it. The story ended up being pretty engaging and the characters were real and funny. It was an interesting mix of Austen staples and modernity. If you ever wondered what it would be like to time travel back to Pemberley, I recommend this book.
I also watched the movie and enjoyed it more than the book… mostly because of JJ Feild, Bret McKenzie, and the ridiculously hilarious Jennifer Coolidge.
