I’ve been reading Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility for my Women’s Lit class. I’ve never read it before and have never desired to read it. I found Pride and Prejudice somewhat painful to read many years ago and never attempted Austen again.
I’m through the first volume and surprisingly, I don’t hate it thus far. It is a little slow and tedious but not too bad. (Maybe it’s because of all the other books I’ve had to read for class.)
I’ll wait until I’m finished reading it to give a more thorough review, but here’s a random tidbit for now–Mrs. Palmer has to be the most annoying woman in the world. I even thought this before my professor showed us the first scene with Mrs. Palmer in the BBC version.
