Review - Persuasion by Jane Austen
About the Author:
Jane Austen (16 December 1775 - 18 July 1817) was an English novelist whose works include Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, and Persuasion. Her biting social commentary and masterful use of both free indirect speech and irony eventually made Austen one of the most influential and honored novelists in English Literature.

My Take on the Book:
There were times when this book was quite lighthearted; and was quite observational in society behaviour.
I didn't enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed 'Pride and Prejudice' and 'Sense and Sensibility', but it was still a good read nonetheless. And as always, it took me a little while to get used to the way the sentences were structured - but that's classic books for you!
