Sense and Sensibility (Insight Edition) Book Review

March 16, 2010 at 1:00 pm Leave a comment

Sense and Sensibility, a classic fiction novel written by Jane Austen and published almost 200 years ago, is still an extremely popular story today. Bethany House Publishers recently released the “Insight Edition” which includes footnotes of trivia, notes, and inspiration to help readers understand more background to this story. It is important to note that the story has not been changed in any way. Some of these notes are historical, that expand on life in England in the 1800s; others are facts about Jane Austen that coincide with the story; still others are themes of faith, or comments on the characters or plot.

This was my second reading of Sense and Sensibility and I definitely enjoyed reading the extra tidbits included in this version. The culture of the 1800s is very different from current culture and there were many times that the notes gave me a greater understanding of various situations.

I recommend this version to all Jane Austen fans, you will probably have new insights after reading this book. And to those of you who have not yet become Jane Austen fan, give this book a try, it’s a timeless story.
