This book was extrememly interesting. I enjoyed the clever love triangles occuring thoughout the book. Jane Austen is a wonderful writer who has a talent of creating complex characters, with very real emotions and problems. The reader is able to relate with the Dashwood girls as they struggle with unrequited love. The reader is never bored with the captivating lives of Elinor and Marianne Dashwood

Typos galore.

I just read a few pages and the typos are terrible. You have to fill in and guess what words they are trying to say. There is a reason it is free.

    Absolutely horrid!

    Could not read. Incomplete words, extraneous characters, special characters. Not worth being free. Someone would have to pay me to keep this.

    So many typographical errors on every page! Not worth trying to get through. Seriously - not even worth it for free.

    I would give it a rating of negative 5 if I could. I' m sure there must be a well transferred version out there, but this is not it. Horrific typos are so prevalent that it was difficult to even determine what some words were supposed to be. Even multiple pages that had half of the manuscript replaced by symbols rather than words. It may be a good classic novel if it were readable.

    Not worth being considered a classic

    The characters are shallow and predictable. The usual feminist Jane Austen falls short with needy characters who need men to complete them. None of the characters are likable or relatable. I usually love classics(my all time favorite being Wuthering Heights), but I could hardly ge through this novel. It took me over two monthes, though books usually only take me one day. Not worth reading im hoping other Jane Austen books are better.
