Sense and Sensibility - Jane Austen

I struggled through the first 150 pages of the novel, but then I flew through the pages and I couldn´t put this book down.


And yet, this isn´t a favorite of mine. Simply because this is a soap opera with a lot of drama, horrible people, who are the worst gossips on earth, and ridiculous love entanglements.


I was actually dreading the worst towards the end of the novel and it didn´t end the way I was hoping it would end.


(I really didn´t get the Colonel Brandon/Marianne pairing or, for that matter, the one between Edward and Elinor. I´m a Colonel Brandon/Elinor fangirl all the way, at least in the book)

(show spoiler)


But I can live with the ending because of the incredibly well written last chapter.
