Calling all Jane Austen Fans ....


There is a really good series that is out at the moment called "Lost in Austen" which takes a girl back into "Pride and Prejudice" pages .... It is only 4 episodes long each lasting 1 hour ... There are so many funny scenes that I could spend all day listing them ... But by far would have to be the Water scene .... Totally priceless .... ( There is also the singing scene and also the card game scene or even the scenes dealing with brushing your teeth) If you are a fan of Jane Austen you are going to love it .... This series is not from the Book Lost in Austen but is based on a UK book called "Being Elizabeth Bennet Create Your Own Jane Austen Adventure " by Emma Campbell Webster which lets you pick and choose different situations so you are in charge of the outcome ... You will be faced throughout this book with delicate challenges and dangerous choices.

Whether you're accepting Mr Darcy the first time he professes his attachment, deciding to elope with Mr Wickham or avoiding a murderous Lady Catherine de Bourgh, this is a chance to rewrite Austen's most famous book. You decide who to marry and when. And if you have always preferred Mr Knightley's sophistication or have a sneaking admiration for the odious Mr Elliot then you can marry them instead. However, make choices with caution: "Being Elizabeth Bennet" is packed with characters and plot twists to thwart your happy union with Pemberly's most eligible bachelor. You must complete five stages - and successfully negotiate your way through Austen's five other novels - before can choose to accept Mr Darcy. But if the outcome does not suit, simply return to page 1 and create a new Jane Austen adventure.

The first meeting with Mr Darcy ....

No Way!!! Okay, that's a completely American response, and totally inappropriate, but I can't think of anything intelligent to say to this!! I've never heard of the Lost in Austen series, but you can bet I'm going to hunt it down and find it! Thanks for bringing this to light!!!
