Startling secrets, unexpected twists, and heartless betrayals interrupt the marriage games that follow. Filled with satiric wit and subtle characterizations, Sense and Sensibility teaches that true love requires a balance of reason and emotion.
As you can tell above, it took me almost five months to get through this book. The simple reason for that is I spent the first month and a half only reading the book in school. When school got out for the summer, I rarely picked up the book. This was because I didn't get that into it. I read Pride and Prejudice a few years ago and loved it. I didn't find Sense and Sensibility to be as good. By the end of the book, I didn't care for the characters all that much. They were okay, but I wasn't that emotionally vested in them. I was pleased with the couples but not terribly excited about them. Overall, this book was just okay. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't incredibly great either. I'm still glad I read it though, and I hope to read more of Jane Austen's books in the future.
