Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

I listened to this as an audiobook, which allowed me to exercise *and* read at the same time.


I require so much!


I loved the relationship Eleanor had with her sister Marianne. Both very different personalities, yet as close as any two sisters could be.

I've never read Sense and Sensibility, need to get on that soon. I just started enjoying audiobooks this year!

I am a reluctant audiobook convert. At first I was sure that I wouldn't enjoy being 'read to', but there's no denying the benefits!

Two birds, one stone . . .

I'm embarrassed to say that I never read this book - must remedy this.

Tracy said...

I love all of Austen's books, and Sense and Sensibility is a good one - love the Ang Lee movie, too.

Trish said...

Diane - It's worth the read, for sure.

Tracy - Yes, both the book and the movie are very good. I was also glad to see that the movie stays quite true to the book.

Sense and Sensibility is a great one -- Colonel Brandon is my favorite. :)

I enjoy audio books, but I can't listen to them unless I'm doing something else, like driving or working out (lawl). I made the mistake of trying to listen to a 12-hour book just in my apartment, and it was torture. I haven't developed the patience to just sit and listen to audio.

If you haven't yet, try Persuasion! It's my favorite Jane Austen book!

I just went to the library and picked up a bunch of audio books...S&S was one I put back, because I want to physically read it and take notes while reading! It's nice to listen to a story while doing something else!

couchpotato - yes, I have to be doing something else while listening, too. Same with music.

Kate - thanks for that recommendation! I was wondering what Persuasion was like; I'll have to look out for a copy.
