    One thought on “Suit and Suitability”

    1. I really loved this book. The characters were what made it most enjoyable for me. ;) I really appreciated how quiet and sensible but also how loving Ellen was portrayed. No cliches here, just a regular girl who loved her family. The sister dynamic between her and Marion was great, though realistically painful at some points. Even though their relatives were overly helpful sometimes, their time at Cardinal Bush sounded delightful, and Sport was a sweet companion for Greta. Everett was such a grea [...]

    2. *happy sigh* I love happy endings! I didn’t really know what to expect going into this book, especially considering I’d never read the original novel, Sense and Sensibility. The characters: what loveliness! Ellen was super sweet, and I found myself relating to her in a lot of ways. Her character and character arc was just fantastically done! I always wanted to stay in her POV. Marion was . . . different. I found myself not really liking her throughout much of the book, mostly because we are [...]

    3. I don't really like Sense and Sensibility, so I wasn't egsactly bouncing up and down ready for this book. But I love Kelsey Bryant, so I knew this would be good.I loved it. The characters were lovely and so well rounded. The plot kept building, and I was always excited to see what would happen next. The ending was beautiful. There really wasn't anything I didn't like.I would recommend this to anyone who would like to see a fresh look at Sense and Sensibility that still has a very classic feel.

    4. If imitation is the ultimate compliment, Kelsey Bryant has paid a huge compliment to Jane Austen. Her style of writing is insightful and entertaining, and setting the story in the 1930's seems very appropriate. The romantic threads were interesting, a bit mysterious, and ended with a satisfying twist. And the two main characters, Marion and Ellen, played well opposite each other.I was especially taken with the beginning of Chapter 5 when Marion is making a final pass through the house they're fo [...]

    5. A review from a bookworm who's (accidentally) never read an original Jane Austen (oops!) .… but that doesn't mean that I can't enjoy a historical fiction novel based on Austen's books!To start this review off, I'd like to say that the writing style is really good. I felt liked I'd just been dropped off in Canton, Ohio in the early 30s. The descriptions of the setting felt so real. Elements of the time period are weaved in so neatly. In the way that the characters talk, certain old words they u [...]

    6. Firstly, I enjoyed this book SO MUCH! :D A retelling of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, this version is set in 1930s America during the Great Depression (mostly in Ohio, and parts in New York City), with a dash of mystery added to it, and it was an absolute delight to read. :) It drew me in from the first chapter and kept me totally absorbed, despite historical fiction of this sort not being my usual reading fare—I loved it! ^_^ It was so fun getting to meet the characters (slightly fam [...]

    7. Age Appropriate For: 10 and upBest for Ages: 15 and upI have a confession to make. I pushed my way through watching two different versions of Sense and Sensibility and did not enjoy either. Marianne drove me crazy with her over-dramatizing of everything and, while I loved Elinor, she couldn’t save the films for me. However, I knew I loved Bryant’s work, and so I wanted to give this book a try. I am so glad I did. Bryant was able to make me feel as if I had been transported back to Canton in [...]

    8. To start out, I must confess that I haven't read the original "Sense and Sensibility" by Jane Austen, but I have watched the two movie adaptions very many times, and next to Persuasion, it is at the top of my list for Jane Austen favourites. "Suit and Suitability" was a very close retelling to the original (I am basing off the movie, remember), and throughout it, I really felt like I was pretty much watching the movie itself, only it being set in the 30's in Ohio/New York. The characters were ve [...]

    9. WARNING:This Review Contains Massive Spoilers! Although I haven’t read the original Sense and Sensibility yet, I have seen the 1995 film version, which I loved, and so I was really looking forward to reading this retelling. I definitely wasn’t disappointed! Although I simply loved the other books in the Vintage Jane Austen series that I’ve read so far, I think this one is probably my favourite of them all. Elinor Dashwood is my favourite Jane Austen character, and this retelling did her al [...]

    10. Out of all of the Jane Austen’s I have read and watched, Sense and Sensibility was my least favorite. I could get through the movies, but the book I just couldn’t finish. There was nothing substantial in it. It was all frivolous, worldly matters. At the same time, I really did like the storyline and I could imagine it retold in a way where Eleanor was the strong, godly sister, and Marianne the flighty dreamer, pulled to the lures of the world. This doesn’t happen often, but Suit and Suitab [...]

    11. I loved this book! The characters, language, setting, overall plotl excellent. A very good retelling of a famous book! (Full review coming soon.)

    12. Suit and Suitability was a pleasant surprise to me, though I expected no less from this author. After reading Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility earlier this year and finding it, to be blunt–with deepest apologies to Austen fans everywhere–predictable and a trifle shallow, I hoped that Suit and Suitability would take the concept and storyline deeper. I was not disappointed. Kelsey Bryant’s excellent skill in weaving the storyline seamlessly into 1930s Ohio and New York combined with the [...]

    13. This book was wonderful. The author's perceptions of the plot and characters were very accurate in my opinion. The plot was just similar enough to the original story and yet just unique enough, and I enjoyed seeing where she would take the familiar story next. Also- acting was the perfect addition to Marianne's character (ahem, Marion). And the addition of faith to the characters and story was beautifully done. It felt so real, raw, and relatable, even though I have not been through anything sim [...]

    14. Excellent ReadA lovely story of love and restoration. I found myself genuinely surprised and enthralled as events unfolded. Many times I encountered unexpected twists and turns. A beautiful story that I highly recommend. I could wait to pick it up again to see what happened next

    15. Title: Suit and SuitabilityWritten By: Kelsey BryantGenre: Historical FictionRecommended Ages: AnyIntroduction:Sense and Sensibility was one of the Jane Austen books I had the hardest time reading. I tried many times, but never could get into it. I finally watched the movie and that helped, but it definitely wasn’t my favorite. So when I had the chance to read Kelsey’s retelling of the story, I was slightly hesitant, but I also really wanted to read one of her books, so I took a chance. And [...]

    16. Une réécriture vintage post crise de 29 où le père d'Elinor (Ellen) et Marianne (Marion) n'est pas mort et où l'héritage n'est pas en question. Cependant, les mésaventures de la famille sont bien là et les caractères des deux héroïnes fidèles aux originales. Les relations familiales sont aussi modifiées mais ce n'est pas une hérésie et la trame principale du roman reste intacte même si l'auteure a réinventé l'histoire et se l'est appropriée. J'aime beaucoup le choix de carriè [...]

    17. In the early 1930s, Ellen and Marion Dashiell’s father is wrongfully sent to prison. Crushed, they, along with their mother and sister, must move from their beloved town Canton, Ohio to live with their aunt and uncle. Marion is certain that this means she’ll never get her chance to become an actress, while sensible Ellen tries to put on a brave face. Yet this isn’t easy when she’s separated from Everret Shepherd. And when Marion meets charismatic Wilkie, instantly falling in love, all in [...]

    18. With ease the author, Kelsey Bryant, whisks readers to 1935, describing the various changes taking place at the end of the Great Depression. Her writing blends these details into fascinating characters with their share of flaws, enabling them to interact with each other in realistic settings.Bryant's style captures the essence of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, and will likely appeal to those who appreciate an update in wording while retaining rich descriptions and robust dialogue.The book [...]
