Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Sense and Sensibility:

An example of good sense amid the selfish.

My favorite Jane Austen quote from the book:

"I will be calm. I will be mistress of myself."

Questions I pondered while reading Sense and Sensibility:

Why is it so hard to do the right thing?

Doesn't making marriage a business arrangement take all the fun out of it?

My review of Sense and Sensibility:

Getting dumped is harsh.

Good sense is hard to find.

I, like Marianne, wear my heart on my sleeve.
