I really enjoyed this book. I loved the author's modern take on Sense and Sensibility and especially loved the ways she changed the story. I suspect some Austen lovers would be upset by the changes, but I appreciated them--who hasn't wanted to play "change partners" with that story? I loved the depth and characterization and the richly detailed settings that the author created. And there was something very relaxing about listening to a story where I thought I knew exactly what was going to happen--but then, as I realized that the ending was not going to be according to Austen, the enjoyment of finding out how the author would wrap it up. Overall, a very enjoyable experience.
