Sense and Sensibility is a sharply detailed portrait of the decorum surrounding courtship and the importance of marriage for women in early 19th-century upper-class English society. The story revolves around Elinor and Marianne Dashwood who, as members of the upper class, cannot "work" for a living and must therefore make a suitable marriage to ensure their livelihood. Elinor is a sensible, rational creature, while her younger sister, Marianne, is wildly romantic - a characteristic that offers Austen plenty of scope for both satire and compassion.

Really enjoyed this reading by Marion Castle - will look for further recordings.
After listening to this for about 10 minutes I decided to buy a different version. Although the narrative is clear, each sentence is ended on a down note, which I found very irritating.
