Description

A woman of no importance, she manoeuvres in her restricted circumstances as her long-time love Captain Wentworth did in the wars. Even though she is nearly thirty, well past the sell-by bloom of youth, Austen makes her win out for herself and for others like herself, in a regenerated society.

  • A Tender Love Story

    As Pride and Prejudice is witty and funny, the appeal of Persuasion is the sweetness of character of the heroine. Persuasion is such a tender love story it grabs your heart from the very first.
  • Austen's best?

    While Pride and Prejudice might be Austen's best-crafted plot and characters, Persuasion is her best page-turner. It is hard to put down and easy to quote!

    I have so enjoyed this book. I love Jane Austen's writing. She develops characters who you come to know completely. She put them into situations that were fun to follow without the need for them to be vulgar, violent, or vicious.

    The worst part of this book is coming to the end and having to say goodbye. All of Austin's characters become as old friends to me.

    Anyone that does not rate any Jane Austen with 5 stars does not deserve to be indulged with reasonable conversation.

    I have seen the movie a million times but never read the book. It was amazing. I loved the book. There were so many unfinished things in the movie that the book explained. And now it makes more sense. I love them equally for their differences and for their similarities. I love this story. Every one should read this book.
