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]

While Pride and Prejudice is my favorite Jane Austen novel (& favorite all-time book), Elizabeth Bennet my favorite Austen heroine & Elizabeth & Darcy my favorite couple, Captain Frederick Wentworth edges out Mr. Darcy as my #BookCrush He may not be as rich, own Pemberley or saved his beloved‘s family & realized the error of his prideful ways, but the man is loyal, hardworking & writes a hell of a love letter! “You pierce my soul…”

This is the first Jane Austen book I have ever read. I didn‘t realize it was her last. I loved Anne, but it seemed much longer than 257 pages. I had good intentions of reading more, but ran out of time this month.

‘you pierce my soul. i am half agony, half hope. i have loved none but you.‘ Once again Jane Austen's biting commentary on social situations and arrangements, on people and relationships is top-notch. Austen is excellent with female characters and also excels at writing gentlemen that, even now two centuries later, have many a girl swooning, Amazing book and a must read, highly recommended.

I admit, I'm not the biggest Jane Austen fan. I think I like the movies more than the books or maybe I've seen the movies so much that I don't really enjoy the books. Either way Persuasion was okay. I found some of the characters rather frustrating but I liked Anne.

Although I understand what Jane Austen tried to accomplish, I just found all the characters to be very bland and some downright unlikable. The book meanders for most of itself and then things really pick up in the last 5 chapters. It is one of those books that the conflict could have been resolved in 5 minutes but the characters refuse to communicate with each other like adults.

A pretty disappointing read.

I‘ve read all of Jane‘s books several times (excluding Mansfield Park which I really don‘t like.) So for #AuthorAMonth I decided to re-read the one I‘ve re-read the least. I forgot how Jane‘s humor shows in this book. A fun re-visit.

#Bookreport

📚Currently reading:

🎧Persuasion - 4 chapters a day.
📕The Goblin Emperor - A chapter a day.
📙Lord of The Necropolis - Reading before bed.
🎧Night of the Hunter - From time to time.

Progress:

Finished my first book of the year! I planned to read Persuasion between ACoK and ASoS but so far it's a huge slog but I will finish it. Looking forward to starting ASoS because I know I will like it.

Doppoetry I hear Persuasion gets better upon a re-read because the reader is familiar with the characters and their struggles at that point. I don't know much about the time period but I know enough to understand that the male love interest cares only about his feelings and doesn't really see the big picture.

I am about halfway done with Persuasion so unless he improves greatly in the latter half it's gonna be a struggle.

Book 3 of 2024.

As expected, this just wasn‘t for me. Even when I retrained my thoughts to think of this as more of a social commentary of the day a la Shakespeare, it just felt like a slog to get through and my attention kept straying. I‘m sure it‘s the narrative rather than the writing itself, because there was very little plot or conflict to be seen here. #AuthorAMonth

#AuthorAMonth Jane Austen

As Persuasion is the only book of Jane's, I haven't read, I chose it rather than revist old favourites (S&S).
This Audible collection is so good, I may yet listen to them all. Persuasion was narrated by Florence Pugh. As per usual, Austen's characters are exemplary, her plot masterful and social commentary as witty and scathing as always. Sad it was her last completed novel.

The older I get the more I like Persuasion over P&P. I guess with age I have tempered my character and went from being more of an Elizabeth to more of an Anne. They are alike in many ways, but at the same time dramatically opposite, Elizabeth is headstrong and once she believes something she won't let anyone persuade her to act in a different way, she'll do what she thinks is right, but at the end of the novel she changes her views. ⬇️⬇️

nanuska_153 Anne on the other hand lets, out of love, other people persuade her to act against what she believes is best, although she is constant on her emotions. In Persuasion Anne's character is measured against the more impulsive and stubborn character of Louisa, and although in both novels the resolution is that a more flexible cautious behaviour is always better, in P&P Elizabeth's character is romanticised. 5mo
nanuska_153 Anne and Elizabeth are both seeing as perfect, but the idea of what "you ought to be" evolves with age. 5mo

#IdiomInsight

#OnceBittenTwiceShy is said when someone has been hurt or had a bad experience in the past, so they‘re far less likely to take risks or make the same mistake again in the future. Often used in books where the hero or heroine has been scorned once by love and refuses to let their guard down again.

In Persuasion, my second favorite Austen novel, Captain Wentworth epitomizes this idiom. These are the covers of the editions I own.🩵

I think this is the most disappointing Austen read I've had to date. I couldn't connect to Anne. Her longing for Frederick became a point of irration rather than something enduring. And in the end I was hoping for a vicious plot twist where they don't end up together 😱

I reckon this is an #UnpopularOpinion

@Clwojick #Pantone2023 #Macchiato

Ruthiella That‘s how I felt the first time I read it too. But when I reread it a few years later, I was able to better accept both Anne and Frederick‘s behavior. I still need to reread Mansfield Park because I disliked it too in the first read. 9mo

“You pierce my soul.” I had the ending spoiled for me before I sat down with this book so I knew that somehow Miss Elliot and Captain Wentworth ended up together. That only made this book better. I felt like I was sitting down with old friends catching up on how they came to be together. Austen does it again. 10/10

Perhaps because his name is popping up in our #PemberLittens #chapteraday readalong of Old Friends and New Fancies (tagged below), Sir Walter Elliot of Persuasion came immediately to mind for #LoveYourself by Justin Bieber. Particularly “Cause if you like the way you look that much Oh, baby, you should go and love yourself.”🪞

And as ever, I'm struck by the complete badassery of Mrs. Croft; anyone else a huge fan? #CurrentlyListening #audiobook

4 stars: a very good book!
I stayed up way past my bedtime to finish this book! The tension between Anne & Wentworth was palatable on every page, & Austen presents such a poignant & timeless window into the human psyche. I really love how the ultimate burden was placed on the man, how Anne was praised for having listened to her mother figure at first & then showing her independence, &, of course, how love won the day despite the passage of time.
