Review--Sense and Sensibility

Sense And SensibilitySense And Sensibility by Jane Austen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The biting wit and wonderful, snarky writing of Jane Austen shines in Sense and Sensibility. I have never understood why high school students are expected to read and enjoy Austen. Clearly, her writing and humor would fly right over the heads of most 17 year olds, which makes re-reading it after one has been (ahem) seasoned for a few decades that much more enjoyable.

If your only exposure to Austen was in high school, or via film, treat yourself to a re-read. She's that good.
