Every time he went out on dates with other women I swear a little bit of me died. By all means Persuasion is different to her preceding work that I have read: Don’t have to be from the same book Oct 19, Anne is too good for all of us tbh.

He was clever, confident, ambitious and employed, but not yet wealthy and with no particular family connections to recommend him. Also, the characters in this tend to be so flippin’ funny it’s insane. How much are we willing to trust those closest to us? View all 47 comments.

Austen’s intelligence, dry wit and humor are evidenced on every page. Or, you’ll express bewilderment at my “strange” reaction and then show concern.

And jzne comes from someone who is well-accustomed to Austen’s often whiny, vain, and hilariously self-deluded characters who serve as comedy persuasoune and tools of subtle social commentary. But they were all written by men. Irvine noted that the gentry characters in Persuasion are an “unimpressive lot”, as Sir Walter Eliot is portrayed as a vain, pompous windbag incapable of providing love for his children, while the Musgrove family are lacking in class and elegance.


Austen lived her entire life as part of a close-knit family located on the lower fringes of the English landed gentry Jane Austen was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature, her realism aisten biting social commentary cementing her historical importance among scholars and critics. Let me tell you. On the last morning of the visit, Louisa sustains a serious concussion in a fall brought about by her impetuous behaviour with Captain Wentworth.

Usually the jerks are handsome and the nice guys are plain.

I am every instant hearing something which overpowers me. View all 12 comments. Jane Austen portal Novels portal Literature portal. And for the first time in the four years we’d known each other I was finally going to get to be in the same city as a man who’d come to be my best friend. Yet Anne could be in no doubt about anything. She values social rank and finds in Anne the daughter most like her late friend.

This really is a must read for any Austen fans, for any romance lovers, for anyone who enjoys a beautifully worded story, one that makes you think and makes your heart go pitter pat.

A bitter, bitter instruction manual.

You pierce my soul. We will not remove any content for bad language alone, or being critical of a particular book. Years ago, she was engaged to a dashing young sailor whom she subsequently rejected on the well-meaning but ultimately flawed advice of a trusted friend. Up front, I must confess, this book, while listed as a favorite by many, is not mine, mainly because of the time it took to get to the meat of the story, and I felt the momentum dragged in some places.

She overhears a conversation where Louisa tells Captain Wentworth that Charles Musgrove first proposed to Anne, who turned him down. Persuasion is my favourite romance, my favourite second chance romance and my favourite Austen.


The same woman who rescued the English novel from the tenacious grip of the age of sentiment and genre trope hysterics of the gothic novel to give it a truly modern form. He could not forgive her,-but he could not be unfeeling. The characters are unlikeable, the plot is about as interesting and compelling as a cooking show.

In her book on Austen, the critic Julia Prewitt Brown found significance in the comparison of Persuasion to Austen’s earlier iane Emma regarding Austen’s ability to vary her narrative technique with respect to her authorial intentions.

I read very slowly, and had to re-read quite a few phrases for me to understand them. And I was right. Certainly the idea of persuasion runs through the book, with vignettes within the story as persiasiune on that theme. Completely missed the part where one of the characters criticizes the main antagonist as having a small dick the first time around.

It included nearly a third part of her own life.


After comment from my dear friend Jean-Paul, I started to doubt myself. As usual, Austen trains her sights on a country village and a asten families–in this case, the Bennets, the Philips, and the Lucases. But this one has so much more than a killer romance and a wonderful set of sisters. On top of all of that, Anne has the most rotten family! Songs and proverbs, all talk of woman’s fickleness.
