Sense and Sensibility 理智与情感
这本书是我在 vienna, VA 捡的，那里有一个trial， washington old post trail。 可以跑到一个小镇上，小镇上有图书馆。 图书馆里有免费的书。
我还是蛮喜欢这本书的，因为是大团圆结局。像M 一样太强烈的情感真的可能不好。像三言二拍 里面， 那些敢为爱疯狂的最后都没什么好结局。
要是我只看书，可能是看不懂的，好在有那个电影，我最记得就是Dr.House 在里面有演。 故事真的还是蛮简单的故事，没有白血病，失意，亲兄妹， 世仇的偶像剧情节。但是为什么，是经典？ 里面的寓意我可能不知道，但是单单看我抄下来的这些句子，就觉得很美，真的好有文化！我记得最后， Elinor 得到求婚后，哭得那个情节！ sense 也有sensibility !
