Jane Austen's Guide To Dating by Lauren Henderson
Rating: zero stars (out of four)
I thought it was in a rather impressive show of distaste that this author tried to mix Jane Austen's novels with her own immoral ethics and worldly knowledge. This book fell short on so many levels I can't even count them all. While the author did manage to put in snippets and examples from most, if not all of Jane Austen's most popular works, I was not impressed with her dating advice. I thought she had a completely different stance on dating than Jane Austen would have approved and I didn't like her lack of ethics and standards. I think the author was just trying to be modern and innovative, but she failed miserably and offered a one-sided opinion. There are other ways to go about dating and her rules and advice did not follow the principles of everyone who might be reading this book. I did not like this book at all and would never recommend.
