Persuasion by Jane Austen Book Summary

Persuasion was published in 1817, six months after Jane Austen’s death, and is the last novel she completed in full.

The novel tells the story of Anne Elliot, now in her late 20s, the daughter of a vain and improvident baronet, Sir Walter Elliot. The family is in debt, and in order to save money they rent their noble property to a retired Admiral and his wife. This brings Anne into unexpected and initially unwelcome contact with the brother of the Admiral’s wife, Captain Frederick Wentworth. Eight years previously, Wentworth had proposed to Anne, only to be rejected by her after she was persuaded by an older friend that he was an unsuitable match. He reacted angrily to this rejection, and she has had no contact with him since.

At the time Anne rejected him, he was a poor naval officer, without his own command. In the years since, however, during the course of the Napoleonic Wars, he has become rich, as many successful captains did during that period. Anne dreads encountering him again, and when she does, he shows no sign of his earlier affection, instead paying his attentions to Anne’s younger sisters-in-law, and Anne must keep her emotions under strict control. Time and circumstance eventually lead to happier results.

Persuasion was well-regarded on publication and has slowly increased in popularity since. It has been turned into several television series and movies.

There’s a movie too. The movie I’d give 4 stars. They tried and it was pretty good.

Love the book, but ads while I’m reading???. I recommend not downloading this version. Every other page is an ad. When I’m reading I don’t like distractions but I guess for whoever published this version it’s more about money than it is about the reader having an enjoyable experience reading a classic. Jane Austen would PIIIIIISSED.

Great book, terrible ebook. DO NOT download this ebook. They’ve interspersed these weird advertisements that cut out most of the text. Do read Persuasion, but do not read this version.

Random ads. Persuasion is a great book, but do not read this version!! There are random ads every few pages that distract from reading. It’s very annoying.

Too many ads. This book would have 50 less pages without ads. There’s one interrupting text about every 3 paragraphs. I just want to read the book!

Not her best. Not as good a plot as her other novels.

First book I’ve come across with ads. This was free on iBooks and went to reread before watching the new Netflix movie. This book has an ad every 5 pages or so and it’s very distracting. Full page of “click here for XYZ.” Deleting.

Ad inserts. The ad inserted into every other page are infuriating. What were the publishers thinking????

Ads. Riddled with full page ads. Bizarre and disruptive.

Awful version. This version has an advertisement between literally every page. Get the other free version - this one is unreadable.

Lovely. Thorough enjoyment of the intelligent gossip, bold professions, simple guarded thoughts eventually shared.

Best Jane Austen so far. I have not read them all, but this is my favourite so far. I love the internal dialogue of Anne and she is so likeable.

Advertising within. I love this story but this particular copy has advertisements throughout and it was very distracting. I couldn’t finish this copy.

This edition. Too many advertisements- every few pages. Very annoying.

Ads. Directs you to a website every few pages which is quite disruptive. I would recommend going with a different version of the book if you’re looking for a more immersive read.

too many ads. too many ads in between pages
