Sometimes the Dashwood girls do not seem like sisters. Elinor is all calmness and reason, and can be relied upon for practical, common sense opinions. Marianne, on the other hand, is all sensibility, full of passionate and romantic feeling. She has no time for dull common sense - or for middle-aged men of 35, long past the age of marriage. True love can only be felt by the young, of course. And if your heart is broken at the age of 17, how can you ever expect to recover from the passionate misery that fills your life, waking and sleeping? An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the Jane Austen original by Clare West.

    " This book isn't as good as Pride and Prejudice, but it's definitely a classic for a reason. Extremely witty, and great social commentary. If you've seen the movie, you might be a little disappointed, though. In some ways, I feel like the movie is better than the back, at least in terms of plot and romance. However, it completely sacrifices the satire. It's clear that this is Austen's first (published) work, but it's extremely sophisticated, and (obviously) well-written. I mean, it's Jane Austen :P Read it. "

    " Two sisters, one sensible as in deep emotionality and passion one having sense and rationality. One looking to get married the other looking to be on the same level as the men. Everyone lives on an estate, Austen is a boring story teller, although indirect passage was unique. If you read this for leisure you're probably a terrible feminist with an unusual social life :P "
