One of my favorites

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. Many people love Pride and Prejudice and Emma, but Persuasion seems to be overlooked. I have always loved this one the most. A little slice of perfection!


Who was your favorite character and why?

Anne is a wonderful character; she is reserved and quiet, but determined not to be pressured into a convenient marriage. She sees people for who they really are.

Delightful story, average performance.

Listening to this a second time I'm once again perplexed by the utterly strange pronouncement of certain words. One (I forget which) was pronounced so strangely it took me a few seconds thought before I could figure out exactly what she meant. And then there's the grating "oblahzshe". What. In. The. Heck. Oblige, woman!!! There's an I and a G in it!!! There were also odd pauses in the reading from time to time. Nothing terrible, but enough to clearly make this not a first-rate production.

Nevertheless, it was inexpensive to purchase and was enjoyable to listen to, so no real complaints. A thoroughly delightful story, one of my favourites.
