    Anne Elliot has grieved for seven years over the loss of her first love, Captain Frederick Wentworth. But events conspire to unravel the knots of deceit and misunderstanding in this beguiling and gently comic story of love and fidelity.

    Emily - Audible says: "Juliet Stevenson is Simply Amazing"
    "Good story, not such a good narrator."

    Where does Persuasion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    High.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Persuasion?

    Capt Harville's and Anne's discussion about the fickleness of women.


    Did Juliet Stevenson do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, she differentiates the characters, but her reading style is not suitable to the story. Ms Stevenson's voice would be good for reading a time table, but both her voice and her intonation are too harsh for long-term listening. Also, Jane Austen's writing style includes long sentences, and Juliet Stevenson's style is making it hard work to listen to them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, too long.


    Any additional comments?

    I wouldn't go out of my way for books narrated by Julia Stevenson.
