Having just finished reading “Sense & Sensibility”, again; I’m beginning to think I prefer it to “Pride & Prejudice”.I’m quite addicted to Jane Austen’s works and read them on a regular basis, not for any other reason than that I enjoy them.
These two works I believe are the stand outs; “S & S” I feel has more depth to it than “P & P” which is much lighter, quite humorous and moves at a far greater pace and I never get tired of reading it; as the W.O. will attest. It is an adult version, in a way, of “Cinderella” to my mind with an exceedingly handsome rich prince charming in Mr Darcy. The characters in “S & S” seem much more real and alive to me and leave me wanting to know more of them; which of course is impossible.
I’ll give this subject more thought and try to clarify my feelings on these two and other Jane Austen works in time; but I thought it best to get a start on the subject while it is fresh in my mind.
