Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen


Reviewed by Catherine Bishir, Curator, Architectural Records Special Collections, NCSU Libraries

For decades, I had known that the "divine Jane" had millions of fans, but I just didn't "get it." Then I took Sense and Sensibility on a long vacation and was determined to read it, and found out what a glorious observer and satirist Austen was/is. I guess I was too young when I first tried to read Austen as an English major in college.
