Jane Austen is one of my favorite authors. I love all her books and this one is my second favorite. The Dashwood sisters and their mother are forced to move once their father passed away and their elder brother inherits their estate. Elinor is prim and proper while Dramatic Mariane seeks adventure. Both girls fall in love and face hardships.

Jane Austen is one of my favorite writers. Her love stories are timeless and her characters memorable. Sense and Sensibility, however, is not her best. It may be just that I'm more of a Pride and Prejudice fan, but I thought that Sense and Sensibility was just too boring and drawn out. Elinor, the narrator, is very lovable though and she did grow on me. The male love interests just aren't as good as Darcy though, and the heroines are just not as loveable as Elizabeth.
