    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.

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

    Austen's works are up there with Shakespeare, Dorothy L Sayers, and many other great writers across a variety of genres.


    What other book might you compare Persuasion to and why?

    "Thrones and Dominations" by Dorothy L Sayers shares the same talent for observation, irony and beautifully written English.


    What about Juliet Stevenson’s performance did you like?

    Her voice is beautifully modulated and smooth. She can also confidently produce male overtones and inflections in her male characterisations which many female voices do not accomplish.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a great listen to an old favourite.
