"As nearly flawless as any fiction could be."
From the Trade Paperback edition. --Eudora Welty
From the Back Cover
Sense and Sensibility is one of the best loved of Jane Austen's novels, populated by great comic creations like Mrs. Jennings, the unscrupulous cad Willoughby, and guileless and artful women. As ever, Austen suffuses her work with great ironic observation and tremendous wit, producing a masterpiece of romantic entanglement that time and a very different set of mores cannot diminish.

The story of Marianne and Elinor is amazing! They are sisters yet completely different. They recently moved with their mother and youngest sister to a new home after some family issues.
Elinor had found he love of her life in a young man by the name of Edward. Little did she know, there is a much different plan in his future than the one she had thought up. A little bit of pain and some angst keeps Elinor strong. She hardly cried over her heartbreak and still in the end, got her happy ending.
Marianne is the middle daughter and it was obvious. She was a little more emotional about the situations life handed her. She fell in love and when she thought all was well, it was ripped out from under her. The man she loved did love her back but it was too late for him when he realized the depth of his feelings for her. Marianne did not get the happy ending she was planning but she did get one.
The way the story ends for the two eldest Dashwood sisters made me smile. I remember gasping with these characters at surprises. I remember crying with these characters as their hearts broke. Jane Austen knows how to write a damn good book full of love, hate, classy ladies, and angst.
The cast includes, among others, the sisters, Willoughby, Edward Ferrars, and John and Fanny Dashwood.
This edition has the complete text and not much else. The introduction has some historical information about the author and about the publishing of the book. There are only two pages of this. The margins are small, so taking notes within the text will prove difficult. It is easy to carry around and seems to put up with a moderate amount of abuse.
I do recommend this book. The edition is worth the price, and the story is indeed a classic.
