I'm sure it's a great read eventually. I'll try it again when I have more patience.
Completely wrong, Austen! Freckles greatly enhance beauty! Also, read what you want, when you want...
Well, it's satire -- this is coming from a character whom Austen lampoons literally from page 1 ...

@Arbie So true. And thanks.

Persuasion is Austen at her most subtle, and this one can be absolutely painful to read. The way that Anne is treated (abused) by her family is awful - with family like that, who needs enemies? The payoff is worth it, in the end, but the journey is difficult.
Couldn't have said it better -- and I'm sorry this one didn't work for you, Hol. :(

That does sounds awful. I will go back to Austen soon enough, I'm just not in the mood for it right now. I think North and South set the bar too high!
