Austenland
Austenland: A Novel | Shannon Hale
98 posts | 193 read | 81 to read
Jane is a young New York woman who can never seem 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? In this addictive, charming and compassionate story, Shannon Hale brings out the Jane Austen obsessive in all of us.

When I started reading this I thought for sure it was going to be a total pan, two stars at the most. To be honest, I hated it. But then somehow I got used to the silly jokes and the mediocre writing, and somehow I cared about what happened to the main character & who she would end up with. Like an extra-corny Hallmark movie, it isn‘t good, but it‘s still good. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

An entertaining, page turner romance. The book is better than the movie. I read this for #InLoveAthon

Cosy and light read for a nice snowy afternoon/evening if you are a huge fan of Jane Austen... and if you read the book the film based on it is a must, too.😀 Grab a cup of coffe/tea or a mug of hot chocolate topped wirh marshmallows and cream and enjoy your afternoon or evening!

A thirty-something Jane Austen fan girl gets the chance to go to Austenland, a resort catering to wealthy women who want to vacation at a Pemberley-inspired mansion and live in the 1800s (except with indoor plumbing).

A fun, fluffy read.

robinb I liked this one too, but also like you, it took me a little while to warm up to Jane. I actually enjoyed the sequel even more...but be warned, it‘s a new hero/heroine but same locale and some of the same secondary characters (with a little mystery thrown in for good measure). Enjoy! 11mo
DarcysMom @robinb Sounds fun! 11mo
robinb @DarcysMom I must admit it was nice to find that the sequel surpassed the original for me. I‘ll be interested to see what you think. 😊 11mo
DarcysMom @robinb I placed a hold on it - hopefully it will be available soon. I am even more excited about it now that I know you liked it even more than the original. 😁 11mo

Carissa-Green-Reads Eh. It's ok. But whenever a person-or in this case a character-says he or she loves Pride and Prejudice because "Colin Firth," they lose me a little. Don't get me wrong, he's the best Darcy, but I am so over that as a reason for Austen love. See also: "Me and Mr Darcy" by Alexandra Potter. 13mo

Austenland' a fun, quick and easy story that most Austen fans could appreciate. We've all probably wondered what it'd be like to have lived during the Regency era. And, this is probably how we would react to that situation.

I'm torn about whether or not I like this more than the film but it's a hard comparison as they're both different from each other as things are always adapted and removed for film.
That being said, I would totally give up money to go to an Austenesque vacation and have a chance at my own Darcy filled story so I loved that Jane got to do that.
I laughed, and sighed as she cycles through old boyfriends as she's living the Austen dream.

batsy I thought this was a fun, light read! Great for when you're feeling the blues... 2y

I've always enjoyed the film Austenland (great cast and so funny), so when this book was on sale at Book Outlet I decided to finally get it. I've also read 5 YA books by Shannon Hale and really like her writing. There are a few differences from the film, and I was sorry there was less of Miss Charming in the book as her character is hilarious in the movie. In short, a fun quick read, especially for fans of Mr. Darcy/Colin Firth. #boutofbooks

I saw this yesterday with a friend and I loved it. I'll have to read the book soon, I think. After the movie I found out there's a Jane Austen club so guess who is reading Persuasion this week so she can go to a film viewing and then a discussion of both? You know, because I've got nothing else to read! 😀
