Alejandro Awesome that you liked so much this novel :) It's my favorite from Jane Austen.

Diane Hi Alejandro, that is great that S&S is your favorite Austen. I find it especially hard to write reviews of literature classics like this, don't you?

Fionnuala Love being reminded of Austen's writing by someone who clearly revels in it - those quotes about the Ferrars-Dashwood clan are so sharp!
And can there ever be too many pages in an Austin novel. If I heard there were some I'd never read, even if they contained too much exposition, I'd search them out asap!

Jan-Maat I think age has cured most of this, but I kind of wish I had read S&S when I was a teenager, you know? Maybe the wisdom would have come earlier

Heh, heh! A dream we can all share! :)

Teresa Great review, Diane. I never understand it when others pigeonhole her as a romance novelist. Of course she deals with relationships and marriages, etc., but that's a big part of life, to this day, but especially back then.

Carmen Elinor Dashwood is my role model.

message 7: by Diane (new)

Diane Hi Fionnuala, yes! More pages, please.

message 8: by Diane (new)

Diane Thanks, Teresa. I agree, Austen's novels are about a lot more than just romance. She captured life as she knew it then.

message 9: by Diane (new)

Diane Hi Jan-Maat, I know, right? There are so many things I wish I had figured out sooner.

message 10: by Diane (new)

Diane Carmen, she is an excellent role model! Good choice.

Tadiana ✩Night Owl☽ Starting a buddy read of this one soon. It's been so long since I read it, but I love both of the recent films.

Cindy Newton Jane Austen was very perceptive, and her books are rife with social satire. It always puzzles me when people dismiss her books as mere romances. There's so much more to them!

Carmen I just finished a re-read of this. Loved your review. :)
