Sense and Sensibility: Beginning

Up next: Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. This is one of two Jane Austen books on my list and I've already read the other one: Pride and Prejudice.

Sense and Sensibility was Jane Austen's first published work, originally published in 1811 using the pseudonym "A Lady." It's the story of two sisters, Elinor (steady, thoughtful and serious) and Marianne (frivolous, dramatic and passionate) and their adventures (and misadventures) in love.

Several film and television adaptations have been produced, including a movie (which is fantastic, in my humble opinion) starring Kate Winslet, Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, and Alan Rickman (RIP).

The version I'm reading for Kindle can be found here and has 242 pages.
