*4+ Stars* I really did like this one. I did, it has some similar traits to Pride and Prejudice which I thought was pretty good. What made me not bump this one up was the fact that it dragged on in a lot of places. I felt like what could have been covered in a few pages went on for many more. ...

I'm familiar with many Jane Austen stories, but this is the first time I've successfully read one of her novels. Years ago, surely eight or nine years now, I made a very lackluster attempt to read Mansfield Park, but I gave up within a mere ten pages. My heart just wasn't in it at the time. More so ...

After their father dies and leaves pretty much everything to their older half-brother, the three Misses Dashwood and their widowed mother have to find a new place to live, which isn't exactly easy with the meagre income they have. After some searching, a cousin of Mrs. Dashwood's offer them lodging ...

Do you ever just read a book and you say to yourself why in the hell did I start reading this? Do I hate myself today? Do I just not want to read good books? And for me to go down that road with a beloved classic...sigh.I felt the same way reading this book that I did reading The Catcher in the Rye....

This was the first Jane Austen novel I ever read, and it retains a special place in my heart because of that. Well, not entirely because of that. To be honest, it deserves a special place in my heart entirely on its own merits, and I always debate between this and Northanger Abbey as my favorite o...

Hmmm. So Sense and Sensibility wasn't quite what I expected. There's something kind of different about it from the other Austen novels I've read so far (Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, and Northanger Abbey). I think in general there's less of a sense of permanence to the characters--where the o...

At the risk of being considered blasphemous by my many Austen-loving friends, I must say: I didn’t like this novel. Unlike P & P, I had trouble finishing this one. It took me over two weeks, and I finished a few other books in the interim. There are two main reasons for my dislike: the writing style...

Sense and Sensibility is a lot like a Fast & Furious movie, except there are no supercar races, gun fights, fist fights, robbery, and scantily clad girls. Come to think of it Sense and Sensibility is nothing like a Fast & Furious movie. I just had no idea how to start off the review.Actually Sense a...

I love listening to Jane Austen. You can just sort of sit there and let the language flow over you. It's gorgeous, and very well read by Susannah Harker.I hadn't read S&S before, and hadn't seen the movie in ages, so didn't quite remember how it all went. It felt like Austen was still working on her...
