    "An odd twist and a different take on a lowers triangle. Kept me entertained for sure."

    "Persuasion is one of the last books written by Jane Austen, it deals with two lovers who's one family doesn't accept the other due to social status reasons. It is a story about two people who love each other and are destined to be together against all odds. One of the best books about star-crossed lovers if you ask me!"

    "It hurts my heart when people call Austen novels romances. Yes, relationships--courtship and marriage--are at the core of her plots, but the books are much, much more. Austen examines the mores of her day, and the limited choices available to ladies (and gentlemen, for that matter) of a certain class. Anne regrets not having married when she had the chance. What will she do when she encounters her former suitor again? What will he do? How does the reduced circumstances of her family have an impact on these choices? Austen examines all this and more with the keen eye of one of literature's greatest social critics."

    "Maybe i'm just not a fan of this author but i hated every second of this book. It's very out dated and just boring. I'll have to not take my friends advice any longer when it comes to recommending books."

    "If you are a fan of Jane Austen, then this is a must read. This is her last full novel, and it is a great story as well. I don't want to tell you too much about the book other then to read it! This is one of those books that would make for a fantastic movie in my opinion."

    "Fanny Price is the quintessential “poor cousin.” Her family consists of many siblings, and when her mother and father find themselves unable to care for all of them, they send Fanny to live with her aunt and uncle, Sir Thomas and Mrs. Norris at Mansfield Park. Living in the grand home is an adjustment for Fanny and her cousins and aunt are not very fond of her, though she adapts to life at Mansfield Park. Over the years, Fanny and Edmund become very close, yet her aunt has other plans for both of them. Mansfield Park is among my favorite Austen novels. I just found myself enjoying the book. I liked Fanny; she was one of Jane Austen’s more realistic characters and I felt pretty sorry for her most of the time. Edmund was all right; I feel like I didn’t really get to know him, like he wasn’t as big a part of the story as some of Jane Austen’s other heroes. But he seemed pretty nice and I like that he stood up for Fanny. There were of course a ton of villains trying to thwart love’s plans. Mrs. Norris was a very annoying character and fit her role of the evil relation perfectly. But alas, there was the happy ending and all was well at Mansfield Park (for the most part, anyway). "

    "I'm not much of a classics reader, but Jane Austen pulls me in every time. Persuasion is a book that I can't help but go back to every now and then. Fanny was a character I really began to root for and the ending is one that brings me to tears every time."

    "Jane Austin's Persuasion is a lovely romance book that is a clean read. I know many schools won't allow certain books to be read by students, but I believe that this one is one of the best clean romance books out there. Although I would still prefer to read Pride and Prejudice. "
