Persuasion

By Jane Austen

I’ve seen every (I think) film/series version of Persuasion and enjoyed reading the book for the first time. It was amazing how the book followed the movies. Kudos to the author, Jane Austen. I predict great things for her. It even lifted pages of actual dialogue straight from the film scripts, especially the Amanda Root version.

At first, I found the sentence structure convoluted, and had to read many passages more than once to grasp the meaning. As the book went on though I got used to it and reading it got easier. It was helpful to be so familiar with the story, but wonder how much better I would have enjoyed it if I had not been so familiar with every twist and turn as it made its way to the final happy outcome.
