Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

I love this novel. I think this was my third reading. We read this one for book club too. Or at least a couple of us did. I don't get why the others didn't try a little harder, since they all claimed to want to read an Austen novel. They did watch the movie (Emma Thompson's)so our discussion revolved around that.

I did go a little crazy after finishing the book and watched the movie, then watched it with Emma Thompson's voice over commentary which was really fun. Then read her journal she wrote while filming the movie. Tried to watch a BBC version but hated it, couldn't get through it. Loved all of it.

This is not a very intelligent review so I'll invite Erin to do that for me. Erin?

  1. This is my favorite Jane Austen novel. It's hilarious. I don't have a real review of it, since it's been a while since I read it. I think Emma Thompson's movie is pretty good, but not as good as the book. This is all my sick and tired brain can think to write right now.
