Listener Opinions

    " I decided to read this "Sense and Sensibility" after watching the 3 hour BBC version. I had watched the Hugh Grant, Kate Winslet, and Emma Thompson version years ago and enjoyed it. I wanted to find which one was the closest to the book. Though Jane Austen's writing is harder for me to read, I thoroughly enjoy the outcome. I needed a dictionary handy as I went through, but I love the character development and seeing how two sisters handle pain differently. Marianne thinks Elinor knows nothing about love: "Always resignation and acceptance. Always prudence and honour and duty. Elinor, where is your heart?" Because of a promise she makes, Elinor is not at liberty to talk about her pain and fears, yet she holds up admirably. Marianne has to learn that it is possible to not wear every emotion on her sleeve for the world to see. Jane Austen really has a knack of making everyone very human as characters you can relate to and yet still have things work out quite nicely. "

    " I Love all of Jane Austen's books but the print in this complete novels is barely readable the print was to small. Get the individual Austen books. This on is really hard to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Salinda | 1/28/2014

    " I anjoyed reading straight through all of Jane Austens books. I found it interesting to notice the similarites and differences between each novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 1/26/2014

    " I LOVE her books. She makes you feel everything without gore, without sex, which can be good sometimes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaye Craig | 1/19/2014

    " Many funny ways to describe people...very old fashion style but fun. This is not as good as Pride and Prejudice....but has moments. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn Langley | 1/18/2014

    " Easier to read the entire selection by Austen than to pick only one. For simple romance and delectable cottage scenes, this English novelist is the master (mistress?). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 1/16/2014

    " I read Pride and Prejudice! What a great book! I didn't want it to end! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lutzka Zivny | 1/16/2014

    " Reading Austen feels like cheating. Literature is not supposed to be this much fun. It's as if one could get college credits for watching soaps, really, really good soaps. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber | 1/15/2014

    " I like having all her finished novels in one book. I generally peruse this book at least once a month. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Traci | 1/14/2014

    " YES, I have read all of Jane Austins novels and loved them all. Even though after a few the theme is a bit repetitive I can't put it down! Call me a "sentimental". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Ashlee | 1/12/2014

    " I love Captain Wentworth. He's a close second to Mr. Rochester. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mei | 12/8/2013

    " Best of the bunch is def pride and prejudice!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tabenda Khan | 11/28/2013

    " She is the ultimate story teller. She weaved every story in such a way that we the readers of all ages can easily relate to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaitlin | 11/26/2013

    " I haven't technically read all of the novels in the book but I plan to!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gaije | 11/18/2013

    " Each one of these is perfect, smart, funny, and devastating at moments. Love, love, love. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 11/14/2013

    " There's nothing I can say that you don't already know. This is how people work. This, right here. And not a word or a comma out of place. "

    " I thank you for my share of the favour," said Elizabeth; "but I do not particularly like your way of getting husbands." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Page | 11/10/2013

    " Humans no matter what their condition need other humans. We were designed to live with each other. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily8helm | 8/30/2013

    " Love, Love, Love Jane Austin. This is in my continuous read catagory, as I'm usually reading a couple of chapters a day. I'd say Mansfield Park and the Abbey one are my least faves of the collection. My version has Lady Susan which is a hoot! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jdiedrichs | 4/4/2013

    " I've read them all more than once. Pride & Prejudice is my favorite followed by Persuasion but I love them all. Even Northanger Abbey. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindy Bell | 3/28/2013

    " I love all of these books and have read them all several times. The beautiful attention to detail, the humour and the irony combined make them among my favourite books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janalyn | 3/7/2013

    " I am a sucker for happy endings and Jane Austen never disappoints. Among my favorites are Pride & Prejudice, Persuasion, and Mansfield Park! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 1/19/2013

    " We re-read these annually, what a quiet moral compass they provide, the tension of picking a husband and life based on a few picnics and some rumors...a lovely escape! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 1/6/2013

    " Enjoying ploughing through this, although one or two have been disappointing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Naomi | 11/30/2012

    " A writer after Hawthorne's own heart with all her details. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Collier | 11/25/2012

    " Jane Austin's novel, Persuasion, is now one of my favorites. It's right up there with Pride and Prejudice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Virginia Lawrence | 9/12/2012

    " Wonderfully picturesque and vividly flavorful example of life during a past era. Draws me into an age whose mores can still be universal .. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deah Renslow | 9/7/2012

    " I have not read these books since junior high and high school and I can't wait to re-read them all! The Jane Austin book club got me so excited all over again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 deirdre | 9/5/2012

    " I love Jane. If you think she just wrote chick lit, think again. These books are so much more than that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deanna | 6/12/2012

    " Have read Sense and Sensibility so far. I think I will read the books in the order they are presented, from 1st published to last. Reading Austin is definitely different than reading todays romance/historical romance novels and I am enjoying the change in pace. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fangirl | 3/19/2012

    " All the wonderful stories of Janes Austen in one book. After I bought this collection I gave away the single editions to friends. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Toni Teig | 8/10/2011

    " I love Jane Austen, it is fun to live in that era while reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 5/23/2011

    " I just read this book for the second time recently, and I think I loved it even more. It has the perfect balance of the humorous parts and also the character growth and development that Jane Austen is so good at. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janeen | 5/18/2011

    " This officially reigns as my least favorite Austen. Everyone was hateful. The only character I liked was Mr. Palmer. And even though I didn't like Marianne, I hated that the narrator smugly declared that she married someone she didn't love. Also, why skip over the proposals? Hmph. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mysterylady | 5/18/2011

    " This is one of my favorites. I really like the characters in this book. It gives you a great look into the Regency era. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 5/16/2011

    " It's a classic. Can't say it was really fantastic, but for the time period it's great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 5/16/2011

    " I've read this novel several times, and I always enjoy it. It's witty and funny and insightful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Torin | 5/15/2011

    " Great book, one of JA's best "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marie-claude | 5/12/2011

    " Je l'ai lu en français. Le titre en français était LE COEUR ET LA RAISON. J'ai aimé mais un peu moins que Pride and prejudice. L'adaptation cinématographique de 1995 avec Emma Thompson est formidable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eliza | 5/10/2011

    " I find it funny - all that mothers, whose only wish is to marry their daughters well. I can´t imagine to live in 19th century, or when it was written, can you? :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 5/10/2011

    " I liked this book, but not as much as Pride and Prejudice. I found Marianne to be very annoying. I was glad to see her improve by the end. I definitely don't think they should have been so quick to forgive Willoughby, though. "

About the Author
Author Jane Austen

Jane Austen (1775–1817) is considered by many scholars to be the first great woman novelist. Born in Steventon, England, she later moved to Bath and began to write for her own and her family’s amusement. Her novels, set in her own English countryside, depict the daily lives of provincial middle-class families with wry observation, a delicate irony, and a good-humored wit.
