He's supposed to be somewhat uncouth, but he still is a man from the 1800's. On coming to the modern era, he quickly turns when seeing a woman in shorts. He stops himself from kissing Jane, but then he turns around and goes with Lady Anna to a party and drinks several glasses of alcohol (they did frequently drink alcohol in the 1800's, so he would know his limits and the consequences), kisses another woman, dances provocatively (by 1800's standards), and engages in a fight. He compares the atmosphere to a brothel and totally accepts it. Yes, he drank, but again, he's a man who made the choice. The fact that he kissed another woman is never specifically addressed. Later, after he has told Jane that he wants to be her boyfriend, he still has no problems going off with Lady Anna and putting his arm around her. He is okay with being a boyfriend because it doesn't necessarily "lead to marriage." He is okay with kissing her with no commitment because it is okay in her time. He also goes rather quickly from looking away at a woman in shorts to embracing how women dress today. I just don't think it is realistic for a man from the 1800's to so quickly step away from his values. An uncouth man from the 1800's, unless he was a complete rake, would still be very conservative by today's standards. He struggled with doing the auction but was completely okay in other situations with attention from multiple ladies. After not even being in our time for a day, he was willing to go to a woman's room. I really wanted to like Algernon, but his morality was really fluid and inconsistent for me. He wants to spend time with Jane because he's supposed to have strong feelings for her, yet he has no problems going out with others to see the city. He never made a definitive stance to Lady Anna that he likes Jane. He's a guy, but he can't be clueless. Besides physical attraction, I did not really feel anything between them. Also, he totally talks behind her back about her being a commoner, but then says he doesn't feel that way when Jane asks him. I know that we're supposed to feel that Jane betrayed him, but honestly, I felt more betrayed by him. Again, I do like this author. I think she writes well. I liked the regency speaking patterns. I liked Jane overall, but I felt like she should stand up for herself a little more. Isn't that one of the points--strong women? I think they were both selfish at times, but the whole Algernon hanging out with two women really bothered me. Jane does hang out with Charles but she is pretty clear it is for research after meeting Algernon. Once she and Algernon are more together, she doesn't go off with Charles. Algernon basically represented what I don't like about the regency period--the men can go off and do whatever with whomever. I would definitely look into her other books, but the whole reason I like "regency men" is their sense of propriety and honor (in terms of behaving gentlemanly, not sense of entitlement). Algernon just didn't seem to have much of that.
