I recieved this book as a present from Joe not long ago. Having admired Jane Austen for years, i thought it astonishing to me to realise i'd never actually completed a novel. My admiration came from film and tv adaptations of her work, which to me is deemed an insult to her writing. So i have decided to read her novels. Persuasion was an odd one to start with being one of her less famous novels, and the last of her completed novels. However it seemed fitting as it is perhaps the only one i haven't seen a film adaptation of.
I think i may have found my new favourite novel, i definatley recommend.
