  "Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict" by bchamplin (see profile) 05/14/09

I liked this book. It was different. there are a few things that need some further explaining, but we found out there is a second book to this set. Someone in our club is going to read the second book and report back to us.
Overall this was fun "what if..." kind of book.

 
  "A Book with a Huge Cliffhanger at the End" by ezzie36330 (see profile) 05/14/09

I liked this book, but it definetly leaves you hanging at the end. I will be purchasing the sequel when it comes out in June.

 
  "An insight into what it was REALLY like to live during the Jane Austen era!" by awolfe0503 (see profile) 05/14/09

The author takes a Jane Austen romance and mixes in the stinky, dirty details of life in the 18th century with a little sci-fi on the side. I can't wait to read the sequel!

  "Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict" by MacSadler (see profile) 05/15/09

Easy to read, fun to talk about. Not a deeply emotional story.

 
  "Unexpected premise...but entertaining" by lindseyschmidt (see profile) 01/03/10

It's sci-fi/mystical nature of the premise nearly turned me off in the beginning but like most 5th graders reading "A wrinkle in Time", I was quickly pulled into the chaos and enchanted by the era, mannerisms, the dichotomy of Courtney/Jane's character and all the hints of Ms. Austen. I was pleasantly surprised by the themes that emerged: forgiveness, regret, the journey to define happiness and contentment, the challenges of seeing beyond what is visible, and like most Austen books-pride. I thought it was fun, engaging, and clever. And I can only imagine the discussions about everyone's Austen fantasies that would emerge at a group discussion around this book!
