Persuasion by Jane Austen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Is not an easy task to write a review of a classic, having so much already said by others in much better possition to say something about it. This is true, particularly about this book. All I can say is that I always find pleasure reading a Jane Austen's novel, she makes such wonderful characters, so alive, you feel that you meet them in flesh and bones.
I really liked Ann, she was very determined, independent in her thoughts, not at all the easy to persuade girl she used to be when she first meet Frederick Wentworth. She is more mature than her entire family. As for Lady Russel, being wrong, she was only acting as a mother. I also liked Captain Wentworth, even when he was so blind by his pride and wounded heart.
If there was a character I couldn't stand, it was her sister Mary, she was insufferable. There where times I wanted to erase her...
I can't say more without telling the story and I don't want to do that for the sake of those who still didn't have the opportunity to read this book. I really like it, and this goes to my Five Star's shelf.
