    One thought on “A Perpetual Estrangement: Jane Austen's Persuasion Reimagined”

    1. 3.75*too complicated. Freddie is too mean with Anne. Anne has had too much suffering. Anne's dad and sister are despicable!!Fortunately her mother's family is lovely, mainly her niece Jane :)A lot of Jane Austen around but even if "Persuasion" is mentioner several times there's no indication of similarities with her life.Spoiler: there's a HEA that takes far too long. Two adults can have a serious chat without one of them looks like a stalker. However, the ending is really sweet :)

    2. Persuasion is my all time favorite Jane Austen book, so I read almost every adaptation of it I find. That said, I felt this story held fairly true to the original, other than modern times. I really liked Ms Ryder's story, but felt that it was very wordy and long, and was somewhat choppy and contrived. Sometimes I pick up a book, and can't stand putting it down. It just carries me away. Unfortunately, such was not the case with this book. I made myself plug along on this, because, as I said, I lo [...]

    3. EntertainingI dont see much of Persuasion in the story except for Anne and Freddie( ?) a trip to Lyme and a spendthrift father.Anne runs a bookstore and has several close friends. Freddie comes back in her life as a writer after they have been apart for 10 years. It would have been as interesting without trying to tie it in the Persuasion adaptation genre.

    4. I don't know what I was thinking. Persuasion is my least fav of the Austen novels. I guess I was hoping that the reimagining would result in a stronger heroine. But no. I just couldn't stand either Anne or Freddie. But really, this is pretty much the story in contemporary times.
