On Persuasion...

I have read and not really understood. Oh, an understatement!

I may have found it really very classical for my taste and all the characters in it are very (un)modern. When I read it though, I feel the pain seeing Wentworth trying to grope if determination is the key or the admiration to Anne rules out.

I love the book though, it makes me understand love in a very different phase. But all the other blah-blahs are well, incomprehensible by my dysfunctional brain at the moment. I guess I am just too caught up with Twilight that I could not understand more of this fine book by Jane Austen. I would love Jane Austen's other books I hope.

Not until I am done with the Twilight Saga that I must get hold of this new book we will be reading, Emma. For joining the Jane Austen Book Club, click here. To visit the site of the host, J of Wits and Nuts, please click this link.

Happy Jane Austen Reading anyway. Enjoy!

" I (We) must endeavor to subdue my (our) mind to my (our) fortune. I (we) must learn to brook being happier than I (we) deserve."
-from Persuasion, by Jane Austen-

I also had a hard time dealing with the first few chapters. Later on, I get used to the "Austen way". If I'm caught up with Twilight series, probably I'll have the share the sentiments. I was reading other books and essays in between Persuasion. Now, Emma is meeting us soon. =)

it takes time to get used to it indeed, but classics have always been my favorites since college, so i enjoyed every bit of persuasion. :)

It's good that you enjoyed your reading. It's been a while since I've read a really good book. I hope to read the Twilight series really soon. Been hearing so much about it.
