This is a fantastic book. Filled with fun adventures, a well of insight on life, and of course, some great do's and don'ts about running. As a runner, I enjoyed this immensely! As a spiritual person, I was challenged. As a postmodern... I was in love. Thank you Hill! The first of this kind!
Persuasion is considered Jane Austen's most mature novel by many. Of her 6 major novels, this is my personal favorite. Ms. Austen's wit, talent for writing dialogue and developing complex, characters shines.
This novel is a story of an experience many of us have lived - one of great love lost and regretted. Anne Elliott gets a second chance at love she was once persuaded to forego.
Pay attention to the first 2 chapters. The development of the characters is fantastic.
