Publisher's Summary

Persuasion, Jane Austen's final novel, follows the romance of Anne Elliot and naval officer Frederick Wentworth. They were happily engaged until Anne's friend, Lady Russell, persuaded her that Frederick was "unworthy". Now, eight years later, Frederick returns, a wealthy captain in the navy, while Anne's family teeters on the edge of bankruptcy. They still love each other, but their past mistakes threaten to keep them apart.

    "Narrated by a speed reader!"

    Story is typical Jane Austen, but listening required a certain amount of tension to not miss anything. The narrator did not distinguish different characters very well, either.

    "Really bad reading"

    ... she speaks so fast that you can barely understand her. Go back and get a better version. This one is just bad. I'd give zero stars if I could.
