Austenland by Shannon Hale, a fun and entertaining story of a young woman, ulucky in love and obsessed with Jane Austen's Mr. Darcy. She books an experience vacation to Austenland and has to immerse herself in the customs and dress of the Regency period and play out the dramas the trip presents to her.
I just finished watching the movie based on the book (produced by author Stephanie Meyer - who knew?) starring Keri Russell, JJ Field, Jennifer Coolidge and Jane Seymour.
The movie was delightful and fun although maybe a bit lacking in the buildup of relationships and some of the plot execution. I felt that they showed one of Jane's love interests, Mr. Nobly express his interest more quickly than in the book, but ah well. They only had under 2 hours. Jennifer Coolidge as Miss Charming came to the show with her over the top antics and one liners.
At first I didn't like Mr. Nobly. I didn't find him attractive and I was disappointed because I thought -How am I going to connect to him? But then just like Lizzie Bennet's Darcy, he grew on me and I found him extremely appealing.
Of course, the HEA was terrific!
Keep watching during the credits for the fun music video.
