TheSite.org Book Club - Discussion on September's book "Persuasion"

Discuss!

I kind of want to know what you guys think before I discuss because I'm massively biased - I love it and the message behind it and everything.

Erm, I dunno when the chat will be. Best to ask picc, I think...

    Yup :D

    I didn't like it. I tried to, because I don't want to just dislike it because it's Austen and I'm prejudiced, but I really found it predictable and tedious. I didn't like the characters enough to really care.

    That said, the message remains relevant. As a queer person, I really felt that the idea of living out your own reality at the expense of your family's wishes and expectations was a powerful one.

    I'm still battling to try and get through this one, sadly I'm not getting that far!
