Sense and Sensibility (Manga Classics) art by Po Tse - OPTIONAL

The Dashwood sisters don’t have fortune or high social status, which makes them more excited about those gentlemen who do show interest. However, wealthy family members work to tear apart the unseemly matches and hidden secrets are revealed at inopportune moments. Can the Dashwood sisters continue to hope for love?

I enjoyed reading this adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel, and the elegant illustrations enhanced the experience for me. Tse skillfully shows readers what is going on even during scenes that are easier to write than to illustrate, like when characters are pondering. My only complaint concerns the abrupt time skips that made for choppy transitions, but even that wasn’t a huge bother.
