Sense and Sensibility - Jane Austen


A series of comic melodramas around inheritance and romantic relationships (for love's sake and inheritance's sake).

indicative quotes

The whole of Lucy's behaviour in the affair, and the prosperity which crowned it, therefore, may be held forth as a most encouraging instance of what an earnest, an unceasing attention to self-interest, however its progress may be apparently obstructed, will do in securing every advantage of fortune, with no other sacrifice than that of time and conscience [page 370]

why bother?

Austen is really funny and writes conversation well.
