After reading Eligible, I decided that it was high time I tackled the other two Austen Project novels. I started with Sense and Sensibility, because I had heard the least about it, both on CBR and the internet in general. I was especially curious to see how the adaptation fared, since Austen’s original seems fairly tied to Regency laws (I’m thinking about the patrilineal inheritance plot points, especially). Also, there are a lot of colorful and also milquetoast characters that are hard to emulate without copying finely. I wanted to see what direction Joanna Trollope would take the story. As I note in my review, this isn’t my favorite Austen, but there is some fun to be had. Also, I give a film recommendation.
