Publisher's Summary

Sense and Sensibility is a novel by Jane Austen, published in 1811. It was published anonymously; "By A Lady" appears on the cover page where the author's name might have been. It tells the story of the Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne, both of age to marry.

The novel follows the young women to their new home with their widowed mother, a meagre cottage on the property of a distant relative, where they experience love, romance, and heartbreak. The novel is set in southwest England, London, and Sussex between 1792 and 1797.

The novel sold out its first print run of 750 copies in the middle of 1813, marking a success for its author, who then had a second print run later that year. The novel continued in publication throughout the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries.

Enjoyable listen

Would you listen to Sense and Sensibility again? Why?

I love this author 's books and re-read them often, this is the first time I have listened and would do so again.
The narrator was good and I found her easy to listen to.
I love the Dashwood sisters but pride and prejudice is still my favourite.

Karen savage is an unbeatable story teller

I have yet to find anyone to match Karen savage's voice and eloquence. I love listening also to her audiobooks the railway children, pride and prejudice, the secret garden and a little princess.
