A tale of manners, morals, and the search for the perfect man by Laurie Viera Rigler, author of the national best-seller Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict When Jane Mansfield, a gentleman's daughter from Regency England, awakens one morning in twenty-first-century L.A -- in the body of someone named Courtney Stone -- culture shock and chaos ensue. Jane must quickly find her way in a world in which everyone thinks she is Courtney: a dizzying world of horseless carriages, unrestricted clothing, and unheard-of liberties for womankind. And then there are all those people talking to the air while holding a small object against their ears. The only thing that is familiar -- and the only thing Jane has in common with the woman in whose life she has landed -- is a love for the novels of Jane Austen. But will the wise words of her favorite novelist be enough to guide her through this bewildering new world? And what is she to make of Courtney's attentive friend Wes, who is as attractive and confusing as the man who broke her heart back home? As Courtney's romantic entanglements become her own, Jane wonders: Would she actually be better off back in Regency England -- and will she ever be able to return?

Decisamente più carino del precedente, vediamo l'altra faccia della medaglia: Jane si ritrova nel corpo di Courtney. Ovviamente per lei le cose sono molto più difficili, non si può pretendere che una ragazza del XVIII secolo si adatti alla vita del XXI secolo in un giorno. La nostra protagonista per...

Uninspiring and not even qualified to be a companion to JAA #1, Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict lacks plot, believability, and character development.
