Publisher's Summary

In Persuasion, Austen's last novel, she reveals a tale of love and marriage told with irony, insight, and an evaluation of human conduct. The characters, Captain Wentworth and Anne Elliot, have met and separated years before. A reunion forces the recognition of the false values that drove them apart.

wonderful performance

What did you love best about Persuasion?

What is not to like about Jane Austin?

What about Greta Scacchi’s performance did you like?

Because of some of the early wording, this is a bit tough to read but Greta Scacchi does it expertly.

Enjoyable listen

Have read Persuasion more than a few times, but as a Jane Austen fan, it was time for me to read again. Thought I would listen instead, if I could find a reader I thought I could enjoy. Greta Scacchi did a wonderful job. She understands Persuasion and how to read Jane.

One of my favourites

Any additional comments?

I don't think I need to say anything about the book or it's author except it is a classic and one of my favourite Austen novels. Greta Scacchi is absolutely wonderful with very distinct voices for all the characters. "The Letter" is still one of the most beautiful things ever written. Enjoy!

A classic treated with great respect

A truly memorable performance of one of my very favourite books. Characters brought to life without over-dramatising the excentricities- I know I will be listening to this one again. Thanks Greta
