Sense and Sensibility, the product of more than a decade's labor, follows the divergent paths of harmonious love and oportunistic marriage through the stories of Elinor and Marianne Dashwood and the unscrupulous, self-advancing Lucy Steele and John Willoughby. Marriage is also the central concern of one of the most popular novels of all time, Pride and Prejudice, in which the proud Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet play out their courtship, fallings-out, and reconciliation. Far more dark and introspective, Mansfield Park offers one of the most complex heroines of nineteenth-century literature, Fanny Price, an orphan who becomes the salvation of a great Tory estate. Their world, with its very distinct manners and setting, becomes timeless through Austen's great art.

This edition has good sized text, so reading isn't a problem. Since it's been out so long, you can also strike a bargain on the used copies. Not much of an eye catcher, but hey. It's a great deal and you can read it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

From one of the most famous authors of any era comes 3 of her best novels in this extraordinary book. Jane Austen masterly captured readers attention worldwide through Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, and Mansfield Park. The former being the heartfelt story of the sensible Elinor Dashwood and the hopelessly romantic younger sister Marianne. The second, and most famous, is of the proud and arrogant Darcy and the prejudice yet playful Elizabeth Bennet. The latter of the three is of the senseous yet poor Fanny Price and her wealthy yet generous cousin Edmund Bertram. These three classic stories captured the hearts of many in this collection of her finest works.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
