Sense & Sensibility the Graphic Novel by Nancy Butler

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I know that Sense & Sensibility is one of the greats, and I probably should have read it, but having read the graphic novel version, I'm not sure that I'd be able to get through the real thing. Not because Jane Austen is a bad writer, I know she is quite good, but because I really don't like romance stories, and social manipulation and unrequited love, etc, really irks me. I really find those kinds of story lines to be quite irritating.

On the positive note, I enjoyed the cartooning. It was very good, and Nancy Butler did a nice job adapting the story. I look forward to reading more by both the author and illustrator.
