Summary:

Jane is a young New York woman who never seems to find the right man-perhaps because of her secret obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. When a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-obsessed women, however, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become more real than she ever could have imagined. Is this total immersion in a fake Austenland enough to make Jane kick the Austen obsession for good, or could all her dreams actually culminate in a Mr. Darcy of her own?

    I was expecting so much more from this book. It was a fast read, which was good because nothing really held my interest.

    This was a light, fun read that many of us who adore Colin Firth/Mr. Darcy can relate to. Yes, it was a tad unrealistic, but it was a fun escape for a few hours.
