This is becoming my most read Austen novel & this reading of it is a real treat that I know I will listen to often!
This was the one jane Austen I had never read- fitting since it was her last! I like bed everything about it. I'm Sorry it took so long to get to it but you shouldn't wait
Definitely, Jane's books they are great. Persuasion is heart warming.. Anne Elliot is like a cactus flower. She blooms as her life changes enrich with adventures she never imagine.
The Admiral Croft, you can hear the salt in his voice the aging spirited seamen. Wonderful characterization.
Yes, again and again. Sometimes when I have want to lighten my day. I'll pick this story and listen to it until the end.
This is a great love story.
Nadia May's reading style takes a little getting used to as she has a significant pause in between sentences. However, she speeds up as the book goes along and I liked her style a lot after I got used to it. I have read Persuasion in print about a hundred times and this version is a lovely alternative for a drive.
Learned to love audiobooks when I was commuting two to three hour a day. I still love listening to a good book, even when I prefer a printed version.
If I wanted to listen to Persuasion again, I would definitely listen to this version again. The narrator is superb and the book is my favorite Austen novel. I do thing that some books are better read than listened to, and this is one, but as an audiobook, this version is perfect!
I just love the older, less attractive heroine getting her chance at last. It's a romantic story and there are always those arch little remarks Austen chucks here and there that you read and then go
I never thought of them as separate roles, but different people speaking at any given time. You lose sight of the fact that it's one narrator inhabiting all the characters as they're all such individuals.
No, it's more a cozy, comfortable pleasure than a rock-your-world type book. It's a perfect book for a long, boring drive or a quiet listen when you want to sit and knit and drink a cup of tea.
Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.
Sorry I tried. Just could not get into this book. All the action is conversations that seem to waffle on about nothing. I have seen two versions of this story on TV and I recommend you get this story that way. Not one of Janes' best.

I really, really enjoyed listening to Nadia May's reading of Jane Austin's Persuasion. This is the first Austin novel I've listened to and, based on it, I'll be listening to several more.
