My Thoughts on The Three Weissman’s of Westport

Posted on

This book advertises itself as a modern day Sense and Sensibility. And as you read along, you think you know where it is going. And you would think wrong. It is as if the author read the book or saw the movie, made it to the end and said, “No, no, that’s not it!” and wrote her own book to “fix” it.

There were so many things about this book I did not like. First, the F bomb is dropped. A lot.

Second, the ‘girls’ in this book were 48 and 50. It made for an odd Elinor and Marianne. Not a good fit.

Also, there was no happy ending for the mother. She really deserved one.

An interesting read, I am always interested in Austen re-do’s, but not my favorite.
