[Book Review] CONFESSIONS OF A JANE AUSTEN ADDICT by Laurie Viera Rigler
Christina reviews CONFESSIONS OF A JANE AUSTEN ADDICT by Laurie Viera Rigler (Dutton, 2007)
Modern woman Courtney Stone ends up time traveling into the world of Jane Austen. She becomes Jane Mansfield, a single 30-year-old who must cope with “unwashed bodies” and sewing. She also must get married or become the bane of her mother. A suitable suitor and best friend come along for the ride.
This was a really good book. Simple to read and not really graphic, it provided a lot of humor and description. It was interesting to learn how Courtney’s thoughts began to merge with Jane’s. The description of life during that time period was also very intriguing. I really enjoyed the book and it was a fast read overall.
