Jane Hayes has lived for Pride and Prejudice and it has become a thing of dreams from the moment Colin Firth came into the picture. Thanks to an unexpected addition in her Great-Aunt’s “Will” Jane will have the chance to live the life she always wanted.
Austenland by Shannon Hale is exactly what I imagined, a little quirky and filled with women who want to life the Jane Austen experience. This was the perfect book to read for the Jane Austen fan. It was only 195 pages so I went through it pretty fast but enjoyed every page.
There are little surprises throughout the book especially with who some of these people really are in their own lives. I liked that Jane grew up through the book and knew she had to take charge and live her life. The part at the end with Mrs. Wattlesbrook’s and Jane was priceless and perfect. There were times that it got confusing who was good for Jane and who wasn’t. It was a tug between Martin and Nobley. I couldn’t make up my mind, secretly I was going for Mr. Nobley. The truth will come out in the end and the right man will be paired with Jane. The ending was what you wanted in a happy ending filled with romance and hope of a new beginning.
