    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.

    Overall

    Jane Austen is always a pleasure, and Persuasion is one of my favorites but Juliet Stevenson makes it even better with her excellent reading. I found myself laughing out loud at her characterizations. I'm certain I'll listen to this one again and again.

    If Tully Mars had known what he was getting himself into when he agreed to help find the lost lens belonging to the lighthouse on Cayo Loco, well, he might never have agreed to help in the first place. Then again, maybe he simply would have taken a slightly longer nap before setting off on his wild adventure. And it isn't just Tully, whom Buffett fans will remember well from Jimmy's best-selling Tales from Margaritaville, on the madcap quest.

    Overall

    I have loved everything Jimmy Buffett has published...until now. It certainly seems like Mr. Buffett is going through a mid-life crisis with his portrayal of women in this book. I was patient at first but by the end of the book when he describes yet another naked woman, I decided I was disappointed. I mean come on Jimmy, isn't it possible to appreciate a woman if she has her clothes on? Every woman in this book, except for Cleopatra, is a dizzy headed girl. Tully Mars only sees women as possible sex partners, constantly summing them up by their body parts. I had pegged Jimmy Buffett as a man who appreciated a smart, strong woman. I had not thought of him as a guy who sees all women as Spring Break fodder. As a long time fan, I have to say I?m a bit disenchanted with Mr. Buffett.
