If the author had stopped after the first half of the book I could have given this 4 stars The first half of the book parallel s Austen s Persuasion but from Wentworth s point of view I thought it was very well done engaging and interesting I couldn t put the book down for this part After Wentworth caught up with the end of Persuasion the author Jeffers tried turned the book into an espionage thriller I thought this portion was weakly written hard to follow and added no value to the store or characters What started out as a clever and well woven fan fic you can t deny that all these re tellings of Austen are just glorified fan fictions turned into a boring weakly told story involving two characters with the same name as two Austen characters I recommend the first half of the book but I suggest stopping once Wentworth s narrative catches up with the end of Austen s Persuasion

Persuasion is possibly my favorite Austen novel and despite the abundance of Pride and Prejudice seuels reimaginings and modern remakes of which I own far too many I was very excited to read this retelling of Persuasion insteadLike all Austen inspired works I try to judge them on their own merits in the context of their own bizarre little sub genre rather than comparing an Austen seuel to another contemporary novel romance etcCaptain Wentworth s Persuasion start after the events of the original novel and then retells in flashbacks the story of Persuasion from the hero s perspective instead of the heroine s There s really nothing wrong with that However the author tries to from time to time write in a Regency style that just doesn t work Then she ll lift a passage or conversation from the original and plop it into the middle of her own pseudo Regency style The result Well nobody really writes like Austen except for Austen These borrowed passages stick out like a pearl among pebbles and make the reader notice the flaws in the author s style all the Spoilers ahoyThe first three uarters of the book are just a simple retelling of what readers already know with a few too many PDAs tossed in to be really true to era Then the final uarter is a tacked on saccharine fairy tale cum smuggler adventure The Wentworths not only have love and his admirable fortune from the war which seemed like a happy enough ending to me but Frederick becomes a national hero And then he gets praised publicly by the Prince And then they get a better title than Anne s father which will make him respect his son in law And then they have twins And they get a perfect estate And then Frederick foils a plot by smugglers to dosomething Exclamation pointHonestly I had stopped caring at this point just wanting the book to be over The most satisfying parts of the story were in the original plot anywayEnd SpoilersThe original story was satisfying enough without having the author s over the top additions at the end This book is at its best right up until the new stuff makes an appearance There s really nothing wrong with imagining new situations for characters to face or new places for them to go but this story takes away any tension by making all the challenges thin and the rewards too great You had an argument with your dad Here have a winning lottery ticket It s just a little absurdAll that being said I did enjoy the bookBut I d far rather read the original one time than give this one a second glance

Insightful and dramatic this novel recreates the original style themes and sardonic humor of Jane Austen’s novel while turning the entire tale on its head in a most engaging fashion Readers hear Captain Wentworth’s side of this tangled story in the revelation of his thoughts and emotions Wentworth initially suffers re. This was my one and only foray into Jane Austen fan fiction Persuasion is my favourite Austen novel and probably my favourite novel full stop I decided to read this book in order to extend the joy of having recently re read it However that was not to be From my perspective it consisted of slabs of Persuasion interspersed with writing infinitely inferior to that of Austen s I accept that this will appeal to many Austen fans just not to me I won t be reading any such novels In future I ll stick to re reading Austen Nothing compares to it
