Buy The Book/Movie

For all you Jane Austen groupies, don't forget this one! 

I'm not sure why I overlooked Persuasion for so many years.  Our book group read it and I absolutely loved Jane all over again (actually, this book is about falling in love again). 

This, being her final finished novel, Persuasion has been termed "mature" and many ardent followers have claimed it as Austen's finest (maybe not quite as light) work.

You will encounter "finely drawn" characters of comedy, goodness, arrogance, selfishness and stupidity--true Austenian irony and wit.

Check out the movie after the book.  I've heard some say the casting was off, but I thought it just lacked the Hollywood pizzazz.  I prefer movies this way, just like Pride and Prejudice!

Happy Reading
