Persuasion is one of Jane Austen's lesser known books and I think I know why. It just is not as engaging as Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility or Emma.
The heroine Anne Elliott is just not as sassy, interesting or as fun as Elizabeth Bennett, Eleanor Dashwood or Emma Woodhouse. I actually found her to be quite boring in parts.
I just wasn't enthused with the storyline. Maybe if I had read Persuasion before the others mentioned, I would have enjoyed it, but I'm afraid to say it wasn't my favourite read, and I'm sure many a Jane Austen fan will criticise me for that fact.
It's not a book I will read again, but saying that I am glad I have read it as it is a Classic that I have been meaning to read for a while.
Good Evening from Pickle Land
