Lost in Austen

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a young Austen heroine must be in want of a husband...



I picked up the most entertaining book today at Borders... Lost in Austen: Create Your Own Jane Austen Adventure.

The basic premise of the book is you are Lizzy Bennett from Pride and Prejudice and while on the pathway to finding a suitable husband (Mr. Darcy) you have to make decisions that lead you in different directions. I have thus far been accosted by gypsies and also stumbled into Mansfield Park storyline (yeah depending on the decisions you make you can travel into other Austen classics... who knows, maybe I'll end up with Captain Wentworth (Persuasion) instead of Darcy after all). This is so much fun!!!
