Persuasion by Jane Austen

PersuasionPersuasion is probably my favourite Jane Austen novel. It lacks the bright humour of  Pride and Prejudice, but both book and heroine share a lovely, gentle pensiveness. It explores ideas of regret and duty, as well as the difference between being persuadable and being spineless. If you have read and enjoyed any of Jane Austen’s other novels and haven’t read Persuasion then you should READ IT IMMEDIATELY. And if you’ve only read Pride and Prejudice and you found it a bit fluffy then you should give Jane Austen a second chance by reading Persuasion!
