Summary: 
Impulsive Marianne Dashwood and cautious Elinor are as different as two sisters could be, yet both are shattered by their father's sudden Death. Elinor's attachment to the reserved Edward Ferrars is torn asunder by family opposition and his own dark secret, while Marianne's brilliant romance with the dashing John Willoughby comes to a tumultuous end in a devastating public betrayal. Can the two sisters overcome these trials to find true, lasting happiness?

Jane Austen's beloved first novel, filled with romance, redemption and social critique, is brought to life for a modern audience in this gorgeous manga-style adaptation!

Short Review:

  Downloaded from Netgalley thanks to the publisher...exchange for free review/honest/etc. 

I've never read Sense & Sensibility by Jane Austen so I cannot compare how well the adaptation compares. But I enjoyed what was given to me through this Manga. Again, I'd consider these good classroom library books. Great to have classics reachable to new readers or a way to bring the story into the class when you have no time to give the books.
