1. Sense and Sensibility. This was Austen’s first novel, published in 1811 (Factoid: she initially wrote it in epistolary format and later changed it to a more traditional narrative). You’ll be introduced to Austen’s biting social commentary, subtle satire, and romance-as-comedy-of-manners plot lines.
Feeling left out because everyone's read Jane Austen and you haven't?
I'm envious... You have wonderful times ahead.
