Review by lauraodom
This was the final novel of the Jane Austen’s I read in 2014, although technically I did not finish it until two days into the new year. As are her other novels, this one is a favorite. I do love Marianne’s passion and Elinor’s sensibility and good nature. I don’t know why Austen’s books appeal to me so much, other than they are a window into a simpler, much romanticized time. This book can be judged on it’s own merit, though and not just on being one the Austen romances. I love the twists and turns. There are quite a few shocking twists to the first time reader, and all the plots are interwoven so well. The storyline of Lucy is especially heart-wrenching. It’s certainly worth the read if you’ve never read it before.<br/><br/>Would I recommend this to a fellow book lover? Absolutely.<br/>Would I recommend this to my teen daughter? Sure. Although the old English may make it a bit hard to follow.
