I purchased this audiobook because it was billed as a modern retelling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion. Nope. The book has only a glancing and superficial nod to Austen’s Persuasion. I noticed on Amazon that many of those who rated this book highly said they had never read Persuasion.... perhaps my familiarity with the original novel made me like this book even less than I otherwise might have. There was little of the actual relationship between the couple who ended up together in the book. The main character Anne is annoying, and made even more so in the audiobook by a whiny delivery. Also, the author needs to do better background research on the medical parts. In fairness, there are some laugh out loud funny moments and good dialog.

I, however, couldn’t wait for it to just be over. The narrator’s voice for the main character was hysterical and annoying, and the accents for other characters were just awful. The story itself had potential but seemed to be just fluff in the end. It might have been better with a less dramatic narration though.
