I don't know why I keep putting myself through these Austen retellings. They are almost always kind of terrible and they almost always kind of make me mad. This one was no exception. The writing was no more than adequate at its best, and pretty terrible at its worst. The story held up up quite well, but that's no surpirse since the story belongs to Jane Austen. The changes (making Anne only 17 when she and Rick were separated) weren't to the story's benefit. The glimpses into Navy life (among my favorite parts of Persuasion) were laughable. Saunders could have done a little research there. Not recommended.

I didn't think it was as heart-wrenching a rendition as the other offerings out there were.  Cute, at best, but at this point, I think I will stick with Ms. Austen's original novel. :)
