Sample Answer:
I have started reading the book ‘Sense and Sensibility’ by Jane Austen 2-3 weeks ago and got so busy with other stuff that I am yet to finish it.

This book was written by a very famous writer named Jane Austen and it was about the love and life of two sisters. This novel is best known as a work of romantic fiction of comedy and manners. I usually read books on my day-off and at night after I return from my work.

I have been reading it for more than 2-3 weeks and have finished more than half of the book. Since I got busy with my work and exam, I had not been able to finish it yet. I usually read about one hour at night and sometimes more than an hour if I have a day off next day.

The writing and narration of Jane Austen are incomparable. She is one of the most revered women writers who had a great charisma to depict the society, people and culture of the old England. This book represents such characters and I like the way the story was told. It vividly represents the good and bad manners and characteristics we have and then shows a perfect balance of those characteristics and morality. I am in fact enjoying reading the book as I have enjoyed other novels by this famous writer.
