The Penguin English Library Edition of Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen "The more I know of the world, the more am I convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much!" Jane Austen's novel tells the story of Marianne Dashwood, who wears her heart on her sleeve, and when she falls in love with the dashing but unsuitable John Willoughby she ignores her sister Elinor's warning that her impulsive behaviour leaves her open to gossip and innuendo. Meanwhile Elinor, always sensitive to social convention, is struggling to conceal her own romantic disappointment, even from those closest to her. Through their parallel experience of love - and its threatened loss - the sisters learn that sense must mix with sensibility if they are to find personal happiness in a society where status and money govern the rules of love. The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
Jane Austen, the daughter of a clergyman, was born in Hampshire in 1775, and later lived in Bath and the village of Chawton.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good. I don't have much to say about this. It was good, LOTS of drama, an admirable sisterly bond between Elinor and Marianne; also I found Elinor a very honourable and likeable person, someone who always has people's best interests at heart and tries to do right by everyone. I'm glad the sisters ended up with the men that they did. I was very concerned on how it was going to all end. Lastly, although I love the language and the men in Jane Austen's books seem to love so fiercely and the words they use to describe their love really gets to my heart, but I still found the general romance kind of lacking in this. I wish there had been more romantic moments.
