According to Jane

You know, sometimes good ideas just don't pan out on paper the way you think they will in your head.
And that is the case with According to Jane. Good in theory. Bad in book.
Seriously, it is one of those books that tries to be believable, but just totally isn't. Someone really thinks that they're having conversations with the real Jane Austen 200 years after her death. And she allows this voice she hears in her head to make decisions (major life decisions) for her?
Sorry. I don't buy it. And, to be honest, I'm glad I didn't buy it. I got it as a free promotion for my Kindle.
The way I look at it, I didn't have to buy the book, and I was mildly entertained.
But, unfortunately, I don't necessarily recommend that you read it. Even if you are an avid Jane Austen fan like myself.
