Reviews - What do customers think about Reason and Romance (The Austen Series, Book 2)?
Very good adaptation Feb 28, 2006
The story itself is very enjoyable. I started this series out with Central Park, which sticks to the heart of the Jane Austen story a bit more closely than Reason and Romance does. However, the only changes that kind of miffed me were that the hero, Ted, was a little less honorable that Austen's Edward and that she switches lines from one character to another in one of the famous scenes. Otherwise, this story stays very close to the heart of the Jane Austen characters and storyline and preserves their interactions closely despite the modern setting. Overall, a very good book and clearly based on Sense and Sensibility.
This book is the Best!!!!!!! Feb 2, 2006
I really like all of her books but this series is really neat. I love the fact that they all are similar to the older good books. Such as pride and prejudice and sense and sensibility!!! But yet still contemporary!! The first book is good (Eddie and Dave) and the second book is even better!!! But of course all her books are great. It is nice to read a good book without all the smut!!!!! Way to go debra!!!!!!!
Modern Day Sense & Sensibility Jan 29, 2006
Debra White Smith has done a wonderful job of brining Jane Austen's Sense & Sensibilty to modern times. She has done a wonderful job in her characters and keeping true to the story line. This was a wonderful read! I'm continuing on to read her other Jane Austen series! I would recommend this book to anyone!
Excellent Book! Jan 28, 2006
I have enjoyed the Austen Series by Debra White Smith from the start. Reason and Romance is one of my favorites out of this series because it follows the original novel, Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, so closely. If one has read Sense and Sensibility one can tell exactly where the updating has taken place in this book. That is one of the things I enjoy most when reading this series. In Reason and Romance Debra White Smith does a good job of letting the reader experience Elaina's feelings of hurt, joy, and sadness, but also leads the reader to a conclusion that is well satisfying. If you read this book and enjoy it I definitely recommend Central Park by this author. That book is actually my favorite, so far, in the whole series. Have fun reading!
Perfectly Marvelous! Jan 28, 2006
If you want to read an amazing modern adaptation of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, this would be the winner. It captures all the heartbreak and joy of Jane Austen's classic and manages to bring it new light. I would highly recomend this book to everyone fan of romance.
