From 3,177 Ratings


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.

    Entertaining, enjoyable period piece. Favorite kind of escapism

    Wow is all I can say, what a love storyline
  • A Tender Love Story

    By PhonicsCanDo
    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.

  • Love it!!!

    By Lorna Evan
    I've read all of Jane Austin's books and must say this might be my favorite!! It is truly a romance. Love endures through time and space, through age and circumstance. And only love can bring true happiness!
  • Austen's best?

    By Pokeraddict
    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!

    This has the worst of Austen’s failings: everything happens inside the heroine’s head, there’s almost no conversation between the two principles, and after building and building to a desired end, when it comes, it’s delivered in summary, as if you were reading a blurb for a movie. She’s an author who goes under or around her fences, and that is limp, disappointing, and not endearing.
