There is no way I’ll be able to write anything remotely objective for this book. (Though I’m going to try for the June issue of Estella.)

So, I’m just going to leave you with my favorite quote from the book. Jane’s (she’s the main character) trying to explain her fascination with Austen and the whole Regency thing to a guy she’s met. She says, “I don’t think I could explain it to a man. If you were a woman, all I’d have to say is ‘Colin Firth in a wet shirt’ and you’d say ‘Ah’.”

Ah, indeed.

If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go pop in the DVD now.
