One of Jane Austen's most beloved novels, brought to life in a sparkling dramatization!
When Mr. Dashwood dies, he must leave the bulk of his estate to the son by his first marriage, which leaves his second wife and three daughters (Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret) in straitened circumstances. They are taken in by a kindly cousin, but their lack of fortune affects the marriageability of both practical Elinor and romantic Marianne. When Elinor forms an attachment for the wealthy Edward Ferrars, his family disapproves and separates them. And though Mrs. Jennings tries to match the worthy (and rich) Colonel Brandon to her, Marianne finds the dashing and fiery Willoughby more to her taste. Both relationships are sorely tried. But this is a romance, and through the hardships and heartbreak, true love and a happy ending will find their way for both the sister who is all sense and the one who is all sensibility.

This book is just sooo great. I would recommend it to anyone. And it has like all of Jane Austin's books those Characters that are funny, annoying, lovable and then ther ones you really despise. Which makes this book so good! The 3 sisters really have a bond. Which is heartwarming, and the Leading man. O you'll love them! But I was upset when my Secound favorite Character( Mr. Willougby) turned out to.... o wait I cant tell you! It will surly ruin the surprise this book offers! Or I should say surprises, because there are many thrilling things you would never exspect. So if your reading this review to see if you want to read it, do! Even if you think that roamnce/adventure stories really arent your taste, give this one a chance. I also recommend the movie. It is very much like the book. But there are maybe a couple parts int eh book that are left out. But it is still very good.
