the seaquel is exactly how I imagined things would go for Elinor and Marianne the author captured it correctly, I feel so sorry for Col Brandon but read it you wont be disappointed
the epistolary style - the original form aunt jane intended for sense and sensibility - is brilliant. funny in parts but learning that marianne acquired little sense is a downer.
I liked it its worth reading

Since the early 1970s, when she was in her mid-thirties, Emma Tennant has been a prolific novelist and has established herself as one of the leading British exponents of "new fiction." This does not mean that she is an imitator of either the French nouveaux romanciers or the American post-modernists, although her work reveals an indebtedness to the methods and preoccupations of some of the latter....more
