0472 | Sense and Sensibility | Jane Austen

0472 | Sense and Sensibility | Jane Austen post image

Context: Listened to this while driving to and from work but barely remember doing so!

Eminently forgettable. Two months after finishing this, I started recording my initial thoughts about Emma by saying that I only had one Austen novel to go to complete her works: Sense and Sensibility.

So, my elation having subsided from the discovery that I do not, a quick visit to Wikipedia sufficed to confirm my prediction that what I had forgotten was what I thought I’d forgotten.

There’s this family with girls. There are these guys. Some of them aren’t bad. Some are. Various combinations of relationships ensue with sporadic bouts of emotional confusion. Eventually, everything settles down at an altar or two.

Sound familiar? That’s because it is.

The end.
