Sense and Sensibility

Finished the Jane Austen novel. I had read Pride and Prejudice long ago (maybe for school?) and liked it so picked Sense and Sensibility for a group read.

I really liked it. A very sweet and innocent story. Fluffy. i don't normally like or read chick lit but since this is classic chick lit i gave it a try. The modern stuff is filled with neurotic, OCD women who can't stop talking about themselves. I don't feel anything like that at all so i don't identify with that.

Austen's themes are universal: love, family, searching for happiness. certainly some things that speak to me right now with my messed up personal life. I really loved the sisters; my only sister is 18 years younger than i so i don't have that kind of close "sisterly" relationship like the book describes. But when i was younger i did want a sister to talk to (rather than stinky old brothers lol) and imagined if i did we'd have a relationship like this novel describes.


currently: watching San Diego perform terribly. hopefully we'll come back in the second half
