I try not to judge people I've never met
You are a philosopher, Miss Price. I would I could be like you.
Certainly you would benefit an occupation of some kind. You have no function, Mr. Darcy. No purpose.
Of course not. What a disgusting idea. That is the raison d'etre of society. We must be seen to be unoccupied.

I've enjoyed Jane Austen's writing but I wouldn't consider myself a big fan. However, I loved LOST IN AUSTEN and I found it to be a readers' fantasy come true.
What would happen, what would it be like, if you had a favorite novel, one that you revisited frequently, a novel that you absolutely loved, one that you could get lost in, and suddenly you did? What would it be like to discover yourself in the middle of that story, not as one of the characters, but as yourself? Wouldn't that be totally amazing?
Well, that's exactly what happens in LOST IN AUSTEN and I loved every minute of it, as anyone who loves to read would also. This is as much a celebration of both reading and storytelling as it is about Jane Austen.
A lot of attention to detail, a cast who look and behave exactly as you expect them to look and behave, a story you're already familiar with, but now toss in the reader herself and stir the mix. WOW!
I had a wonderful time watching this and I hope you do as well.
