Finally reading a Jane Austen book…

Well, listening to it during my drive time here in California, I realize why I’ve never finished a Jane Austen book. I’ve been listening to Sense and Sensibility.

I want to strangle Marianne and her mother. And all the talk of a gentleman being ancient at 35, it’s easy to see that the author was young herself to think of that age as being in one’s dotage even given the lifespan for the era and while I’m offing people, can I shoot Willoughby? He’s a total twit! How can anyone consider him a romantic hero?

    OMG I’m reading this right now, in hard copy! I’m not enjoying it nearly as much as P&P, but that’s just me. I agree with your comments about Marianne and her mother. Willoughby seems to be a flighty young man, and thus far I think his encounters with Marianne may have sullied her reputation, but that has not even come up.
