I read the excerpt of Trollope's Sense & Sensibility, and it takes place in a modern setting. It's been too long since I attempted to read the original for me to provide any sort of comparison, but I rather enjoyed the excerpt. (I was never able to enjoy Austen.) I would have pre-ordered it but decided to wait, as I've pretty much shot my entertainment budget for the rest of the year already.
