Book Bucket List: Persuasion by Jane Austen

There are books in your life that you come across and you know you have to read them. They can be old, they can be new but before your time runs out you have to find time to read them. Welcome to my Book Bucket List everyone!


Synopsis: Set in Somersetshire and Bath, the novel revolves around the lives and love affair of Sir Walter Elliot, his daughters Elizabeth, Anne, and Mary, and various in-laws, friends, suitors, and other characters, In Anne Elliot, the author created perhaps her sweetest, most appealing heroine.

At the center of the novel is Anne's thwarted romance with Captain Frederick Wentworth, a navy man Anne met and fell in love with when she was 19. At the time, Wentworth was deemed an unsuitable match and Anne was forced to break off the relationship. Eight years later, however, they meet again. By this time Captain Wentworth has made his fortune in the navy and is an attractive "catch." However, Anne is now uncertain about his feelings for her. But after various twists and turns of fortune, the novel ends on a happy note.

I'm ashamed to say that the only book I've read of Jane Austen's is Pride and Prejudice (one of my favorite books). Basically, all of Austen's work is on my bucket list but this is the one that has been recommended to me fairly recently. This source has declared that this is better than Pride and Prejudice although I'm not sure if I can believe it but I'll have to read it to find out.

  1. Persuasion is my favorite Jane Austen, I hope you like it!

    If I may add a secondary suggestion, if you can get your hands on the bicentennial edition of Sense and Sensibility illustrated by Niroot Puttapipat do so! His illustrations with their gentle wash of colors are a wonderful accompaniment. (Sorry, illustration geek. He's also done illustrations for fairytales and a limited edition of the Rubaiyat that I'd love to get my claws on. https://himmapaan.wordpress.com/ )

    1. I'm sure I will!

      Thanks for the suggestion. I love illustrations and I'm always open to suggestions when it comes to editions. I need the help! Since there are so many of them out there it's good to narrow it down. Thank you!

  4. My Dear friends online, My name is dnellay  And i live in the USA, ohio, I have to give this miraculous testimony, which is so unbelievable until now. I had a problem with my Ex husband 2 years ago, which led to our break up. I was not myself again, I felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worse. I cried all day, until a close friend of mine told me about a spell caster who helped her in the same problem too. His name is Doctor okeke. I chatted with the spell caster and I told him my problem and I did what he asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before I knew what was happening, less than two days my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me. I was so happy to have him back to me. The most interesting part of the story is that I am pregnant. Thanks to Doctor Okeke for saving my marriage and for also saving others' own too.

He did his work and cast the spell and to my greatest surprise, my husband came back the same day begging and crying just as DR IYOHA said.

  9. I'm patcha Out of respect for you and your spells I must make this testimony known to all, I've been to other spell casters without seeing any result. I just wished I came to you earlier, I got the best from you. My ex husband was gone for a year and I went everywhere and other spell casters for help but no result until my friend introduced me to Dr Iyoha After the Love Spell was done, I finally got a call from him. His spells worked wonders and my husband is back full of love. It's a miracle! He suddenly came back with flowers saying that i should forgive him, i was truly flabbergasted and shocked when my husband kneel down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept him back.. I'm really short of words and joyful, you are a God sent to me and my entire family.. And now I am a joyful woman once again. Thank you so much Dr Iyoha To everyone who is looking for a real spell caster should contact Dr Iyoha On driyohasolutiontemple@yahoo.com OR you can also reach him directly on what-sapp Via: +1 857 228 8347 or call / Text him : +1 407 337 9869

  10. I'm Tonia Anderson by name, I am from the States, Suffolk county to be precise. I am here today to testify of the good works LORD ZAKUZA has done in my life, I never knew great men still exist until I found him. I have been suffering from heart break for the past 3 years, my partner who I invested on cheated on me with my best friend on my matrimonial bed, I was yet to recover from this terrible shock and needed help to make him stop cheating. A friend of mine directed me to this spell caster called Lord Zakuza. I doubted him at first but as things went further, I had to give him my trust and did exactly as he told me to do. Ever since then, I have been happy all my life and my love life with my partner has been so wonderful. You can also need his help and here's his contact information.
