Publisher's Summary

Sometimes the Dashwood girls do not seem like sisters. Elinor is all calmness and reason, and can be relied upon for practical, common sense opinions. Marianne, on the other hand, is all sensibility, full of passionate and romantic feeling. She has no time for dull common sense - or for middle-aged men of 35, long past the age of marriage. True love can only be felt by the young, of course. And if your heart is broken at the age of 17, how can you ever expect to recover from the passionate misery that fills your life, waking and sleeping? An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the Jane Austen original by Clare West.

Classical and very good novel

What made the experience of listening to Sense and Sensibility (Adaptation) the most enjoyable?

As I expected, the novel, the adaptation and everything is very good. But, in fact, it was a experiment for me, because I'm looking for a very easy text. I need get advance in my English level. I'd like to have the book and the audible version at the same time. Is that possible?. Having both (text and audible book) I could understand and learn better. Thank you!
