Publisher's Summary

Seven years ago, Anne Elliot broke off her engagement to Captain Frederick Wentworth, convinced that marrying a man without money or status would be a grave mistake. Now, she is past her prime and single at 27. But when the estranged paramours reconnect through a couple renting the Elliot family estate, Anne discovers she may have another shot at romance - this time, on her terms.
Part fairy tale, part social commentary, Jane Austen's novel delivers not only her signature warmth and wit but perhaps her most mature and relatable heroine. Persuasion remains true to Austen's form in being ahead of its time, arguing that where there is love, there is happiness - even in the most impractical of unions.
AmazonClassics brings you timeless works from the masters of storytelling. Ideal for anyone who wants to hear a great work for the first time or rediscover an old favorite, these new editions open the door to literature's most unforgettable characters and beloved worlds.
Revised edition: Previously published as Persuasion, this edition of Persuasion (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Great reading

I read this book years ago and, returning to it recently, bought it on audio book but found the narrator didn't seem to understand what she was reading, and put no expression into it, making it a tedious listen. So I tried this one - in the Amazon Classics series. Really good, gives the sense of the text and remains interesting (but not over-dramatized). Not my favourite Jane Austen book but still worth listening to - and I will come back to it again I know.

Well read Austen

I was going to get the one read by Stevenson but the price was really good for this one. Only a very slight dislike, which wouldn’t put me off listening to him again: too many older women sounded like Lady Bracknell played by Edith Evans. Full of character though. One of my favourite Austens.
