Sense and Sensibility

by Jane Austen

I loved this book. More than Pride and Prejudice. I think it's to each their own. My favorite was Elinor Dashwood and while I found Marianne quite spoiled for most of the book, she grew on me. I liked this book mainly because while there is romance, the story is really about the relationship between the two sisters who are so different and expect such different things from life, love, and each other. While P&P was also good, that book was more focused on romance than family and sisterhood, and I feel that Austen herself understood and conveyed sisterhood to me more convincingly than romance in general. But that's just me. Give the book a chance, it may not be your cup of tea, but it may also surprise you.
