Year 4, Book 69

69. Persuasion by Jane Austen
I read this book for the first time probably about 10 years ago. I was studying abroad in London and found a bunch of classics including all of Jane Austens books on sale for 99p at a bookstore in Covent Garden and bought a bunch of them. I read it again recently for one of my book clubs. I didn’t remember much about it as it seemed almost wholly new to me upon reading it a second time. I think part of the problem is that to some degree all of Austen’s books are the same plot and have too many of the characters named the same thing. This book is typical Austen with a plot revolving around marriage and the issue of suitable partners based on class. I give it a 5 out of 10.
