Persuasion
Persuasion | Jane Austen
"Soal perasaan lama yang dapat bersemi kembali, masih menjadi pertanyaan, tapi masa silam pasti masih terkenang oleh keduanya." Anne Elliot haru srela melepaskan kekasihnya, Frederick Wentworth, karena keluarga besar Anne menganggapnya tak sederajat dengan nama besar bangsawan Elliot. Anne pun tetap menyendiri, tak mengindahkan pinangan dari pria lain. Delapan tahun berlalu sejak perpisahan menyakitkan itu, Frederick kembali hadir di hadapannya. Pria itu bersikap seolah mereka tak saling mengenal. Sebaliknya, Anne berusaha menutupi kegugupannya tiap kali harus memandang pria yang masih terus dicintainya itu. Berbagai kesempatan yang sellau mempertemukan mereka semakin menyiksa batin Anne. Sebuah pertanyaan pun menghantui Anne, masihkah Frederick mencintainya ataukah yang tersisa hanya luka lama di hatinya? Classic Romance-kisah cinta yang tak lekang oleh masa, karya indah para penulis legendaris yang disajikan untuk memberi makna baru dalam romantika kehidupan [Mizan, Noura Books, Novel, Terjemahan, Klasik, Romansa, Cinta, Indonesia]

Persuasion (Revised) | Jane Austen
post image

Persuasion finished, slight detour to a Bridgerton romance before tackling HLG/Phillis Wheatley.

As if 2022 couldn‘t get off to a worse start, my best friend lost her husband to non-Covid illness on New Years Day, and the night of his wake, we came home & our dog has been lethargic & hasn‘t eaten since — almost 6 days. Looks like she might have Addison‘s Disease. 😩 😭 🐕 ❤️‍🩹 #bookspin

AmyG I‘m sorry for your loss. A friend/client of my husbands had a heart attack and died 12/26. I agreethis year sucks so far. Hope the dog is ok. 2w

All hail the queen of shade and pettiness - Jane Austen! This book is Austen at her petty best and I‘m here for every bit of it. Great story about love - familial and romantic. Highly recommend if you‘re looking for a classic that‘s full of hope and joy, if you derive pleasure from the irreverent observations of a shady lady (Austen & Anne Elliot)!

Favorite book for #August and the second oldest book I read in 2021. The oldest was Mansfield Park!

For the newest book I read in 2021, it‘s a tie, and as it happens they were published in August.

I have now read every completed work of Jane Austen‘s and you can definitely add me to her fan club. Persuasion is different from her other novels bc it‘s less humorous and the heroine is past her “prime” as she has chosen familial duty over non beneficial matches. I like Anne for that reason. And another beautiful and eloquent love declaration in the end that just makes you want to lay down in the rain in the countryside. know what I mean?

Persuasion is yet another job well done by Ms. Austen. I sadly couldn‘t finish reading it with the #Pemberlittens and @sprainedbrain so I missed the watch parties but I‘m catching up on my own. 😁

All in all, I would definitely read it again. Honestly, I‘d reread all of Austen‘s works again with the #Pemberlittens if I could. What can I say? The author has that charm on me.💁🏽‍♀️✨

Rating: 5/5

Check comments for the full review! ⬇️

I.be.Stef 1- Unlike her other books, this one is short and beautifully written. Anne Elliot is a mature character compared to previous ones. She almost reminds me of Jane Bennet. 3mo
I.be.Stef 2- What story would it be if there wasn‘t an imposter suitor looking to gain something?Mr. Elliot fits the bill but I‘d say he‘s less vicious comparatively. Oh other than the fact that he stole Mrs. Clay when Anne denied his proposal 😂 3mo
I.be.Stef 3- Finally Captain Wentworth! IMO the character is okay. The story needed a bit more space for his development. But I couldn‘t stop seeing Darcy as I read the book. The characters are very similar.
But just as Darcy realized his mistake, Wentworth did too! Idk but when a character (especially a man 🙄) changes his ways after realizing his mistake makes me fall head over heels! (Provided he doesn‘t do it ever again :/ ) 😂😍

My photo doesn't really do this cover justice. I've started a new hardcover classics collection because I found these books by the Chiltern company. I don't normally even like hardcovers. These have metallic edges and attached ribbon bookmarks. The pages are a sturdy glossy material as well. I am in love.

27-8 Oct 2021 (audiobook)
Finishing the Austen marathon with the one I had not previously read. A captivating story, but lacking the humour of Emma or Pride and Prejudice.
Anne is considerably older than most Austen heroines, having previously chosen familial duty over an unfavourable match. The story takes place a decade later - she has lost her youthful bloom and the man in question gained a fortune. An interesting contrast to her other novels.

Ok, #PemberLittens, the ‘Septembers‘ have it, and we are moving watch parties up to THIS MONTH. Since it‘s already September, I need to move fast on scheduling… if you‘re interested in watch parties for any of the above Persuasion adaptations, please fill out this form so that I can find times and dates that will work for you.

I‘m going to have to start scheduling tomorrow night, so please fill out ASAP. 😘

Hey, #PemberLittens!

Our normal schedule has been 2 months per book, followed by a month of retellings and watch parties, but I think most have finished Persuasion, and I know that many of us like to dedicate October to spooky/seasonal reading, so let‘s take a poll!

If you‘re someone who likes to do the retellings and/or watch parties, please comment: shall we do Persuasion-related in September or October?

Above are my options—what are yours?❤️

In re-reading Persuasion, I am able to appreciate it more. I like that the heroine is more matured; and admire her for how she endured her life. Love, love this quiet, melancholic story about second chances. And no wonder that letter is one of the best love letter in the history of fiction. ❤️

I think this is only my second time reading Persuasion. I will always be sad we didn‘t get more Austen but this feels like a perfect cap to her work. It‘s a bit darker, less frothy, and sharper. I definitely appreciate it more after this #pemberlittens read and I think might be the Austen I pick up next when I need a fix.

Thanks to @sprainedbrain for hosting this and ALL the #pemberlittens reads. It‘s been so lovely reading along with everyone.

Persuasion is one of my favourite Austen novels, and rereading it again with the lovely #pemberlittens has just cemented its place in my personal canon. Everytime it just gets a little bit sadder, so the ending where Anne Elliot does indeed triumph over family and circumstances and has a taste of genuine happiness always feels like a gift. The older I get the more understanding I am about how the people around you can make life so restrictive.

Even with a family that I found appalling, Anne Elliott was a woman to be admired. This is one of my favorite quotes that describes her “ ... with manners as consciously right as they were invariably gentle”. I find this so admirable. She was deserving of happiness and to be valued by someone who appreciated her.
So glad to have this long time TBR removed from the shelves! It was most enjoyable to read with the #pemberlittens! ❤️ @sprainedbrain

I love this book even more after a slow reread. I adore Anne and find her oddly relatable. Wentworth is the ultimate Austen hero, and this story makes me smile, laugh, cry… Smart, witty, and oh so romantic.

Jane Austen was so, so good by this last completed book… I can only imagine what masterpieces she would have written if she hadn‘t died so young.

Ch 24: After a long 8 1/2 years pining for each other, Anne & Frederick waste no more time & are married. Not that she really cares, but Anne‘s family & Lady R are ok with it. Mr. Elliot slithers off & the slimy Mrs. Clay follows him. Mrs. Smith is restored to wealth. Mary is still a selfish twit, Elizabeth is still a snobby whiner, & Sir Walter is still a narcissistic jerk, but all of that is ok because Anne has her Captain. ❤️

"Anne was tenderness itself, and she had the full worth of it in Captain Wentworth‘s affection. His profession was all that could ever make her friends wish that tenderness less, the dread of a future war all that could dim her sunshine. She gloried in being a sailor‘s wife, but she must pay the tax of quick alarm for belonging to that profession which is, if possible, more distinguished in its domestic virtues than in its national importance." ⬇️

The end of a lovely journey. I really loved this book (which I had never read before.) Reading the books in order a chapter a day really added to the experience. Thanks so much @sprainedbrain #PemberLittens

sprainedbrain I‘m so glad you loved it! Thank you for being a #PemberLitten! It has been great. ❤️ 5mo

Rereading this with the #PemberLittens was a real treat! Some details I had forgotten, and it was so cool to discover them again amongst this fun group. P&P is still my fave Austen, but this one is a very close second.

Thank you Jenni, for hosting this awesome group…you are a true rock star! 😉

sprainedbrain Thank YOU Cynthia! You‘ve been such a wonderful #pemberlitten and I‘ve had so much fun! ❤️ 5mo

On rereading this one, I realize how much I love. This and P & P are my favorites. It is short but to the point. The characters are loving, funny, devious, and annoying. Everything that makes a great book! #pemberlittens

I finished listening to Persuasion, and with it the entirety of this audiobook. Persuasion and Pride & Prejudice remain my favorites, I read Mansfield Park for the first time, and I also came to appreciate some of the others more than when I first read them. Reading along with all the #PemberLittens has been a fantastic way to experience these stories.

#audiobook

sprainedbrain I‘m going to do audiobook the next time I read them. Thank you for being a part of this group! It‘s been so wonderful! 5mo
Daisey @sprainedbrain Listening to just a chapter at a time can be tough, but I really enjoyed them on audio. Thanks so much for all you have done in organizing; it really has been fantastic! 5mo

This is definitely my favourite Austen. I love that Anne is so reflective and never misses a hint, and also that she doesn't blame anyone for what happened all those years ago, even though she knows now that she was given bad advice. She's such a mature character. I also love the lack of melodrama in this book.
Oh, and Wentworth's letter 😍

eeclayton It's strange we've finished all the novels. It's been such a great experience to read them with you #pemberlittens ! Thanks @sprainedbrain for hosting! ❤️ 5mo

I love Persuasion,it's on of my favourite Austen's if not my favourite.Anne is such a rational character she could be a reader of her own story,has great capacity to understand the situations.Wentworth (♥️sigh)such a strong personality,never doubts himself,he is proud,but doesn't hesitate to leave pride behind and put himself in a vulnerable position even if he is not sure of being accepted.Sir Walter is one of the funniest Austen characters⬇️⬇️

nanuska_153 The only character I don't like is Lady Russell, a wannabe Mrs Weston, but closer to what Emma could end up being as an older person. I don't understand why Anne, who is clearly more capable of reading situations than Lady Russell puts so much interest on her opinion,I guess because she doesn't have anybody else and we all need a parental figure.Gonna miss Austen #Pemberlittens Thanks for organising this @sprainedbrain 5mo
Liatrek Totally agree about Lady Russell could be a future version of Emma. 5mo

@sprainedbrain thanks for hosting this #ChapterADay book. It was so fun to see all the Memes and comments. I may have even moved this book up a notch on my Jane Austen list. It was one sweet read, to be sure.

I can‘t believe it‘s over! Persuasion is my second favorite Austen novel and it was a joy to read.

I feel a solid connection to Anne. They say this was Austen‘s most autobiographical novel and since Austen‘s birthday is the day after mine, maybe there‘s something to that. Any other Sagittarius pemberlittens?

A bittersweet check off my #bookspinbingo board

TheAromaofBooks I loved my reread of this one so much!!! 5mo

Sad for his sister and Ben
She would grieve longer

DebinHawaii Anne agrees, any
woman who truly loves would
not soon forget it! 💔

Harville says men have
stronger bodies, so more feels! 🦾❤️
Ann doesn‘t think so

Pen drop! Fred eavesdrops! 🖋👂🏻
Anne says women love longest
when hope is gone. (Swoon!)😍😋

Fred rushes to go
Turns back and sneaks a letter ✉️
OMG! Read it!📜

“You pierce my soul, I‘m
half agony, half hope… (WOW!) 🥰
I loved none but you…
⬇️
(edited) 5mo
DebinHawaii Even when I was 🤬

If you feel the same

Give me a look…word ✔️
and I‘ll even come to your
awful fam‘s party! 🥳

Anne all atwitter
Chuck, Mary & Hen appear
Can‘t deal, must go now! 🏃🏻‍♀️

Chuck escorts her out

Past slights overlooked

Year eight, would you have had me? ⁉️
Would I! (You dumb arse!) 🍑

Fred owns his dumb-assery 🍑
Gotta respect that! 🎖

Ch 23: You guys, I can‘t even bring the snark for this chapter… if I loved it less I could talk about it more.😉

Anne & Harville discuss which sex loves longest & truest while Wentworth writes a letter. He‘s listening to every word & is so affected he writes instead THE BEST LETTER EVER to Anne.

Anne reads it, nearly dies in ecstasy, they walk together, & everything is as it was.

Wentworth ❤️ Anne & I love them both so much.

Lcsmcat When I need a pick me up, I read this chapter. ❤️ 5mo
sprainedbrain @Lcsmcat me too! One of my copies actually falls open to the letter, I read it so much. 🥰 5mo
inthegreensandblues Such a letter was not to be soon recovered from! 😍 5mo

Liatrek This is the chapter I just want to hug ❤️❤️❤️ I replayed it over and over listening in my car this morning. 5mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I will second every comment on here! Honestly, who needs stuck up Darcy when they could have Wentworth, who always saw Anne‘s true worth (even when her own family was blind to it, and she couldn‘t see it herself!). Yep, still my favorite!! 5mo
Liatrek @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Yes!!!! Wentworth❤️❤️ 5mo
Palimpsest I love this chapter 🥰 5mo
suvata The worst thing about this chapter is that you know the book is coming to an end. I could read this chapter over and over again and it would still put a smile on my face every time. 5mo
Teresereading I kept going today and finished it. So good, I think her style is so mature here, and her insight so good. Much as I love P&P, I think this could be the better crafted novel, less is more and she Bri gs the characters into sharper focus. #Pemberlittens has been such a great group this year, there must be more reads we can share? I started with The Italian (edited) 5mo
Librarybelle It is the best letter ever! 5mo
Teresereading At the end I discovered my Penguin has the cancelled Chapter 23 which was interesting, the final is better. Also a memoir of Austen by her nephew. Bonus 5mo

4thhouseontheleft LOVE this chapter so much! Best letter ever. 5mo
sprainedbrain @DanaManiac I will add you to my tag list! So sorry we missed you before. We will have to decide where to go from here as a group… Persuasion was the last full-length novel so the group has read all the mains now. I will tag you when I post a survey about it! ❤️ 5mo
sprainedbrain @Teresereading We will surely continue with something! I will come up with a survey for everyone to give input and will tag all when I do! I‘m going to have to find this cancelled chapter you speak of! 5mo
4thhouseontheleft @Teresereading there is an alternate chapter 23? I‘ll have to track that down to compare! 5mo
DanaManiac @sprainedbrain okay thank you!! ☺️ 5mo
