Fast delivery, great condition. Would buy from this seller again.


really special , even for Jane Austen

by Corgi on Mar 9, 2009

This is a lovely story at any age, I think principally because the relationship between Anne Elliott and Captain Wentworth is the truest to life, the most nuanced and complicated, of any of Austen's. It's also actually, to me, the most romantic. It also seems particularly rich in humor, characters' absurdities, revealing behaviors & funny dialog. But to an older single woman, this story has even greater resonance - it's so satisfying to watch Anne come into her own when everyone thought it was too late for her. And remember, as I read on a friend's birthday cake, 50 is the new 30!

One of the shorter novels of Jane Austen, Persuasion is the lovely story of quiet, sensible Anne Elliot. Surrounded by a family whose only concern is their rank and appearance, Anne welcomes a visit to her sister?s family. During her trip she enjoys the company around her, not the least of which includes a former suitor. The tale is told with such charm as only Austen can produce, and includes one of the most delightfully romantic conversations to be found in literature.


Fantastic Read

by apostolicchic on Apr 3, 2007

What can i say? An excellent read! I loved this book, simply because the heroine isn't as young as her other heroines. Anne, the heroine of the book, has already passed her bloom and is believed to be destined for spinster hood. She is only in her late 20's, but at a time when marriage at 17-19 is desired, she is becoming an old maid. Read the book, find out what happens to Anne and learn about love that is as strong after 10 years as it was at its beginning.
