Sense and Sensibility  - Jane Austen

i don't know how others feel about it, but i'm finding Marianne exceedingly irritating. yes, her heart's been broken, but good lord, the drama! also, she's kind of a selfish jerk, if you ask me. then again, i guess it makes sense when one considers her age (seventeen? eighteen?). she's a teenager, and acts like it. but, really her behavior is an insult to even teenagers that old.
