Overview

Bicentenary edition of a beloved classic complete with original color plates and new silhouettes by illustrator Niroot Puttapipat, capturing the spirit of Regency England


The first of Jane Austen's published novels, Sense and Sensibility was originally published in October 1811. Originally entitled after its two heroines, Elinor and Marianne, the novel tells the tale of sensible Elinor Dashwood, the older of the two sisters, who believes in privacy, propriety, and logic, and flighty Marianne, who follows her heart without so much as a second thought for the consequences. As much a comment on social etiquette as a story about love and belonging, the timeless favorite illuminates Jane Austen's world. Featuring Jane Austen's complete and unabridged text, this is the first of six specially produced editions of her novels published to coincide with the bicentenary of their first publication.

Thank you to Jim Hart at Bethany House for providing my copy of this classic. I couldn't help but wonder how the classic might have been improved.Historical and cultural details and definitions from England's early 1800s, facts about Austen's life that enhance the storyline, as well as many other notations, conveniently interspersed along the side margins make this an easy-to-use tutorial.I suggest that Homeschoolers, students of all ages and stages would benefit by the read or rereading. As a retired high school English teacher, I would chose this edition to teach.

This is a bad copy of a good book.

After my first reading of this beautifully written romance, I found myself intrigued by Austen's ability to create characters and situations that draw me in and hold me close. I now find myself looking for more novels by her that I have to read. I want find out if these other novels are as captivating and emotional as Sense and Sensibility. I highly recommend this and all other Jane Austen books.

I'm a fan of Jane's books, this is my second favorite. Only reason I gave it four stars is because there seems to be something lacking that I can't quite put my finger on it though.

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.

...but not the free Google version...the problem with just scanning and relying on software to "error" check, is that it makes new and different mistakes. It's gotten to the point that I'm going to delete my free version and spend some money on a different copy.

I enjoyed this book very much, but would have loved it if the editorial coments did not so often intrude on the body of the writing. There were several places where the 'margin notes' ended up in the middle of the body of work thereby interupting the flow until I could figure out what belonged and what didn't. I would hope that the publishers would care about this classic tale (and the ongoing popularity of Jane Austin) to correct these errors in future editions!

You can't even read this. It has special characters splashed throughout the regular text, and is absolutely impossible to read. :(

Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility is a delightful novel, but this edition has mangled her classic, rendering it almost illegible. Stray symbols and letters make it nearly impossible to read. Please seek out another edition for your reading pleasure, as this particular eBook offers no benefits. Though the story is not to be missed, you would do well to find a different copy of it.

I really enjoyed this story. It keeps you guessing as to who will marry whom and if a characters flaws or assets will be found. I recommend it as a classic book that you can go to for a look back at the past.

I always enjoy sitting down and reading a Jane Austin book. I have read and re-read Sense and Sensibility many times through the years. I am excited to now have this book on my Nook and available to me with the push of a button. Jane Austin fans will understand this. If you haven't read this book ,you are missing a trip into a young woman's look of love in years gone by.

Jane Austen only gifted us with a few books, but they are all stellar. Each should be required reading for anyone who who aspires to be or says he is a well-educated person. Sense and Sensibility shows the reader what life was like during Austen's time. The manners of the time, the role of inheritance (or lack thereof), inter- and intra-family relationships...all are so intricate and important for the time. Dive in, enjoy the characters, enjoy the slower pace...you'll be glad you did.
