So many books (you know the rest)
Sense and Sensibility
by Jane Austen
Published in 1811 (I finished it on June 22, 2006)
I read this as an audio book so maybe it was the narrator’s aging female voice that just didn’t work for me. This book drove me senseless. The story just didn’t seem to really go anywhere. The characters were very well developed, but never really captivated my attention. She could have killed everyone off in the end with carefully aimed cannons and I wouldn’t have shed a tear. I guess it was her first novel, so maybe it was just a tough start. I wouldn’t read this one again.
