So I read half of Sense and Sensibility, but I found it a bit slow....did anyone else feel the same? I love the character of Elinor Dashwood, and Marianne as well (though I found her a bit annoying at times), as well as Edward Ferrars, but the storyline seemed a bit slow so I couldn't get myself to finish it. I read a summary of the rest of it on Wikipedia though and it sounds pretty good. I guess I'll force myself to actually finish the book sometime.
 
I loved Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey though, they are the only other Jane Austen books I read after Pride and Prejudice, and though P&P is my all time fav, Mansfield Park comes second and Northanger Abbey comes third.

My personal favorite is also Pride and Prejudice. From the moment I picked it up I couldn't stop reading. Mr. Darcy was the one that had me hooked. But I too think Sense and Sensibility is harder to get into the groove with. I've started it a few times but just can't seem to get past a few pages, hopefully next time I can.

Pride and Prejudice is the best . I also liked Persuasion ,it's like middle age cinderella story. Even i find Sense and Sensibility slow or harder to get in its skin. Emma is also  awesome. I didn't read Northanger abbey and Mansfield park
