I am *in love* with this vintage Folio set of Austen's compete works- a gift from my thoughtful husband. Kicking off a full re-read with Sense and Sensibility, my sentimental favorite forever. #PemberLittens #CurrentlyReading

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Beautiful 😍 6d
LeahBergen These are my absolute favourite editions of Austen (they have the best woodcut illustrations). I have the same ones in burgundy (the ones they released after your set). 6d
Andrea313 @LeahBergen Amazing! The woodcuts are so wonderful, definitely a highlight of these editions. Have you posted pics of your burgundy collection? Sounds swoon-worthy! 6d

I connect to, and fall in love with, something different in each of Jane‘s books, but this is one of the few where I connect to the leading women in a way that I actually see whispers of myself in them and their actions. I know I always say I‘ve just read my favorite, but I actually think it may be true this time 😂 I‘m slowly rereading all her works so eventually I‘ll get back to you also on my favorite at 41.

LiteraryinLawrence I feel that way about some of Austen‘s work too! I think this one and P&P are the ones I can reread and always find something new. 1mo

Sense And Sensibility is definitely the cattiest of Austen‘s novels. Elinor in particular is a straight-up hater. She might put on a polite front for other characters, but Austen reveals as narrator that she is absolutely murdering everyone around her in her mind. You‘ve got to admire a girl who can filter like that! Full review: https://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/sense-and-sensibility-jane-austen/

I loved this book, but dang! The bar is low here for men to be forgiven for their awful behavior! When those bad actions involve women, the women are blamed much more harshly. I liked Eleanor, but she forgave much too easily. I don‘t understand the point of the third Dashwood daughter, Margaret. I kept forgetting about her. #audiowalk

I disliked Mrs. Jennings when I first met her. She talks too much, and she‘s an awful gossip. Now I think she‘s pretty funny and has a good heart. I don‘t understand Eleanor‘s attitude toward Edward at all. He‘s not an innocent in the way he treated her. Marianne is growing on me; she‘s got a lot of faults, but she says what she thinks. I almost needed a sweater today. #audiowalk

Read in January. 1995 movie watched today.

I wasn‘t sure I would enjoy this one as much as P&P or Persuasion, but I did. I read in print but also listened to Rosalyn Landor‘s lovely narration. I laughed out loud at some of the character‘s comments and behaviors,mainly the unsavory characters. #aam #authoramonth

#AuthorAMonth @Soubvihille Two sisters who are complete opposites in character spend most of their time trying to understand one another as they struggle with their world and finding happiness and husbands. Both undergo changes and learn to meet each other halfway as they grow closer together. Austen's wit and savage commentary about the social norms of the day are evident here as in her other books. I adored Elinor and Marianne. Next, the movie!

S&S is the first Austen book I fell in love with, and the one I've returned to the most throughout my life. My relationship with the characters has changed so much as I've aged, and it makes me deeply appreciate Jane's staggering skill. To see myself in a work at 14, at 26, at 35, and at 40, and to laugh and cringe and think back fondly is such a gift. On top of that, to continually take away new discoveries is a rare thing. #PemberLittens

Just as wonderful as I remember! No one does annoying neighbors and greedy family members better than Austen. I blew through this, listening while walking, working out, cooking, and painting. I haven‘t done a paint by number in over a year and I forgot how calming it was. Especially while listening to Austen :) #BookspinBingo #Authoramonth @TheAromaofBooks @Soubhiville

The Dashwood sisters are unlucky at love, thanks to men who were deceitful about their intentions. Meanwhile, their world is surrounded by nasty in-laws and busybodies and manipulators. Thankfully there are also a few kind souls who genuinely care about them and some luck and payback may help to put things to right. Rosamund Pike is an excellent narrator—taking the time to distinguish many characters and their emotions. #authoramonth

Soubhiville Glad you enjoyed it. 🙂 5mo

I‘m on my third Austen book this month, fourth Austen book I‘ve read so far having read Emma some years back, but I‘m getting a little weary of her. Rosamund Pike is an excellent narrator and I‘m glad I switched to the audio—it‘s easier to keep going. But I am so tempted to bail. I‘m 5 hours into it, a big investment, with “only” 6-1/2 hours to go. Stay or go?

Between Barton and Delaford, there was that constant communication which strong family affection would naturally dictate;—and among the merits and the happiness of Elinor and Marianne, let it not be ranked as the least considerable, that though sisters, and living almost within sight of each other, they could live without disagreement between themselves, or producing coolness between their husbands.

I am working my way through Jane Austen novels. I didn't enjoy this one as much as Pride & Prejudice. Overall, I didn't feel like very much happened, and I didn't care for any of the men.

If I had been told what this book was about I wouldn‘t have read it. The life in which adolescents only priority in life is to be married off, doesn‘t interest me enough to read a story about it more than once. But this novel is more than a story, and Austen‘s style of writing is so captivating that I enjoyed the whole of it. Such an intelligent author too, who didn‘t spend unnecessary pages on endless and fatiguing description.

1. This was harder to determine than expected, so I‘m going to go with the tagged book.
2. As long as the author is not “phoning it in,” the series can go on indefinitely.
3. The Deborah Knott series by Margaret Maron. It was a satisfying ending but still a little bittersweet.

I saw Jessica Swale‘s adaptation of Sense and Sensibility performed this summer and fell in love with the smart choices and beautiful production. It was a pleasure to read the adapted play. The added scenes between Elinor and Edward spark with chemistry. The little sister, Margaret, is fleshed out and I love the depth her naturalist tendencies add to the story. A brilliant stage adaptation for anyone who loves the original novel.

Having seen the movie first, I can say that reading the story was much more interesting. The movie made me feel that too many elements were similar to Pride and Prejudice (sisters in need of good marriages, a male character of little consistency, etc). Reading the book allowed me to fully enjoy the nuances and the characters.

Dear #pemberlittens, I finished reading the previous selection! Now, I will look back and read everyone‘s comments. My favorite character was Elinor Dashwood. She exemplified strength, loyalty, kindness and grace. The writing was exquisite, as I fully expected. However, the constant evaluations of a woman‘s beauty as her ticket to a good match irritated my enjoyment of the story. I was so tired of the tributes to Marianne‘s beauty.

StaceGhost I loved Elinor! She‘s one of my daughter‘s literary namesakes. Also, I love what you said about women‘s looks being used as currency. I feel like Austen was definitely making ✨A Statement✨ It‘s almost as if she‘s saying a little less beauty would make it easier for women to be happier because then they wouldn‘t be as idealized. Same thing with Kitty in AK— let women be beautiful and happy! And don‘t make a big to do about it lol (edited) 2y
sprainedbrain I‘m so glad you loved it! I also love Elinor ❤️ 2y
