'Sense and Sensibility' reminds me of a line from Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet': These violent delights have violent ends . . . Therefore love moderately. 'Sense and Sensibility' doesn't have Romeo and Juliet's tragic ending (thank goodness!), but the characters (even ones only mentioned) suffer in proportion to their lack of moderation in the story. There needs to be a balance between reason (Elinor) and passion (Marianne) if a person is going to be successful in love and ultimately marriage. I enjoyed Emma Thompson's 1995 film adaptation of Sense and Sensibility a wee bit more than I enjoyed the book. I really missed the small, romantic, touches (especially Colonel Brandon's attentions to Marianne) that Ms. Thompson added.

Highly recommended for both runners and non-runners. The story is both rambling and fast paced, keeping the reader enthralled. It also lays out a lot of interesting science, both of which seamlessly melded together into a great book.
