Sex on Earth: A Celebration of Animal Reproduction

Sense and Sensibility (Penguin Classics)

Sense and Sensibility  - Jane Austen I found this book to be insufferable. The book is extremely wordy and on top of that, lacking interesting content. It is essentially two sisters going on and on about men for this or that reason. It never feels like it is really going anywhere. I don't understand how this could have been considered a "romance" book as I found it to be utterly lacking any such thing as romance. It sure had a lot of "crying" though. I have never in my life seen so many characters being said to have "cried" their dialogue. How many whining moments did these characters need? What they needed was a good smack or two! Add on top of that the incessant mentioning of material objects and money and you have yourself one boring, uppity book that is considered a "classic". Well it is not a classic in my house, but it could be a doorstop--it would serve more of a purpose that way.
