I'm currently still reading through this book, but it s very interesting. Its written to accompany the tv programme, 'Regency House'. I didn't see the TV show myself but it didn't stop me picking the book up at a bargain bookstore and I love it.As well as giving a short introduction of the people taking part in the experiment of putting modern people into the Regency period, it gives some great details into the Regency times.Not so much a history book, it goes into the ways of society and the ro [...]

Synopsis: Tying-in with the 4-part primetime PBS series airing in November 2004, Regency House Party will follow 5 men and 5 women as they meet, flirt and court within the same strict protocols as Jane Austen's heroes and heroines, e.g. all women must be chaperoned, a woman should never encourage a man, a man should never touch a young lady, etc. Each participant will be designated a role and an income, which will dictate their social standing—although at any point this could change and one of [...]

I really hoped for more insight into the lives and experiences of the participants in the TV show, but was disappointed -- although the pictures were absolutely gorgeous and it was definitely entertaining. I felt it could have been longer, and a bit more personal, especially because all of my googling of the people on the show and their fate (as it came out in 2005) has been fruitless thus far. Strangely, I requested this book through inter-library loan, and the library it came from was the Mang [...]

I really enjoyed this interesting TV series tie-in. It contained a huge amount of information about the Regency period as well as detailing the stilted and difficult relationships that were had between the sexes and classes. The chapter on politics and revolution was particularly interesting. My only criticism would be that there should have been a follow up review of how the participants experiences changed their views of modern society.

Never saw the TV show, but I picked this up as research for an upcoming talk. Jago has great background and illustrations, so if you just skip over the bits about 21st century people complaining about the tight clothing and not getting to wear make-up or use a toilet for a few weeks, it's very interesting and educational. Lots of fun for Austen fans.

Watched the series and was curious to find out more about the show and the personalities -- the book didn't pan out in that dimension, but certainly contains more than you'd ever want to know about the Regency period!

It's great to learn about a time period by re-creating it and having people live in it! Quite fun.Oh, and wow I am sure glad I didn't live back then!
