Read full description of the books The Dashwood Sisters' Secrets of Love:

I am of mixed feelings about this book. The plot was decent, and you could see elements of the original Sense and Sensibility. It followed fairly close, and you could tell what events were supposed to match up. I am not sure if I agree with some of the things that were changed to accommodate modern times. In my opinion Sense and Sensibility is the hardest book of Jane Austen's to set in modern times because of how much societal norms, and laws have changed. She does okay, but I think I would have done things differently.

The three girls Ellie(Elinor), Abby(Marianne), and Georgie(Margaret) were much like the originals. I loved how much she brought Georgie into the story, and gave her a little bit more depth. I ABSOLUTELY did not like what she did with ALL the male characters. Blake, who is the Edward character, the way he was written instead of being honorable he seemed weak and vacillating. The Colonel Brandon character, Nick, was pushy and annoying. It irritated me because Colonel Brandon is one of my favorite Jane Austen heroes. I love how he treated everyone, and patiently waited for Marianne, and how devoted he was. I really didn't like what she did with Abby(Marianne) and Hunter(Willoughby). I won't go into detail so as not to spoil, but it could have been done better.

Overall I liked it, and enjoyed reading it, but when I started to analyze it closely, and really pick it apart I found more and more that bugged me. If I don't think of it as a modern day Sense and Sensibility I would rate it higher. It deviates too much from Jane Austen's creation, especially the characters, which is what Jane was so good at.
