  • « Le meilleur hommage à Jane Austen » - Stephenie Meyer
    Jane Hayes est une jeune New Yorkaise en apparence tout à fait normale, mais elle a un secret : son obsession secrète pour Mr Darcy, ou plus précisément pour Colin Firth jouant Mr Darcy dans l'adaptation de la BBC de Pride and Prejudice.
    Résultat, sa vie amoureuse est proche du néant : aucun homme n'est à la hauteur de la comparaison. Quand une riche parente lui laisse en héritage un séjour de 3 semaines dans un centre chic pour les Austen-addicts, les fantasmes de Jane impliquant une rencontre fortuite avec un héros tiré tout droit de l'époque de la Régence deviennent un peu trop réels.
    Cette immersion dans cet Austenland réussira-t-elle à débarrasser Jane de son obsession pour lui permettre de rencontrer un vrai Mr. Darcy ?

    Shannon Hale

    Jane is a young New York woman who can never seem to find the right man-perhaps because of her secret obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. When a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-obsessed women, however, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become more real than she ever could have imagined. Is this total immersion in a fake Austenland enough to make Jane kick the Austen obsession for good, or could all her dreams actually culminate in a Mr. Darcy of her own?
    In this addictive, charming and compassionate story, Shannon Hale brings out the Jane Austen obsessive in all of us.
