Summary and review: This will be a very short review....

It is about two sisters who, after there father dies and there half brother inherits the big estate they have lived in, has become poorer and there chances of finding husbands are not much in their favor. The two sisters are inseparable, but also very different - one cannot grieve without everyone knowing it, the other, well... I think you get the picture. 

This book is about the big question: should we let our heart or our brain control our actions? Or putting it as Austen: Sense? or Sensibility?

 

My thoughts of this book was... Well, it is not Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy, but the characters in Sense and Sensibility were nicely described, but not as lovable (and lovingly hateful) as in Pride and Prejudice, but I very much enjoyed reading Austen again. It has been a great while since I last did it. I will, although, say that I missed the author's sarcasm. I did not see it as often as in Pride and Prejudice and Mansfield Park. Therefore, mostly, I cannot give this one five stars, but rather four stars.
