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.

    This is the comfort blanket I return to again and again. Not as frothily romantic as P&P but more mature and more solidly emotional, with real and likeable protagonists and an entertaining supporting cast of fools, villains and adorable demi-heroes. The perfect rainy-Sunday read.

    I'm so glad I read this n iBooks- the 'Define' button made understanding and getting through the book as fast as I pleased much easier than when I read Pride and Prejudice as a paperback. Lovely story...feel like it was quite short now that I think back...nah, a perfect length actually ^^

    Liked it, but not as much as Emma. Too much disparity between the good characters (wise, thoughtful, learned, discrete, kind, etc) and the bad ones. It's hardly credible that Anne Elliott comes from the same family as her ghastly father and sisters. And Anne herself is rather passive. But her crucial chat with Captain Harville near the end is touchingly heartfelt (one imagines Jane Austen feeling strongly about the content) and I liked the subtleties of 18th century courtship, at a time when noone seemed able to say what they really felt. Certainly good enough to persuade me to tackle the remainder of the Austen stories I don't yet know.
  • Fantastic!

    Not the most famous, and not one I'd ever heard of. Still, a nice genteel read to while away the hours and wind down from 21st century life. It's not really what I'd call a rip roaring read or romp, it could even be retitled "Gentle Persuasion", but even so, sometimes it nice to read a book that holds your attention without leaving a mark on your skin. I think this is a book that in a few year I would be able to read again, and possibly enjoy just as much or more.
  • Beautiful!!!
