Persuasion is a powerful book that strongly impacts the mind of any reader. I read this book for a research paper I had to write this year in high school, and I fell in love with it. Apart from the fact that I experienced the emotions described in this book, Jane Austen presents the material in such a way that the reader can comprehend, and fully grasp, the struggle of Captain Wentworth and Anne Elliot. This is truly a tremendous masterpiece. I strongly recommend it.

This is one of my all time favorite books. I have read it several times in paperback and after having to sell almost all of my books for a move I was excited to see this free version. The formatting is fairly decent. There are random numbers and letters throughout and some of the line breaks are odd but it's not hard to read and really isn't annoying. Some of the paragraphs run on but that was how my other copy of the book was. I could be coming from a different perspective on the reason the formatting really doesn't bother me. I was a history major and some of the things that I had to read from this time period (and others) were not edited for ease of reading. Good copy if you are interested in reading it.

I love this book however, I was sincerely disappointed with the number of typos in the Barnes & Noble Classics series nook book verison. After reading a couple more Jane Austen book from the Barnes and Noble Classic nook books, I kept finding more typos to the point that I went and purchased a different publisher's version and archieved the B&N version.

A great satirical description of class prejudice and privilege. The virtuous overcome the contemptible and the reader is happy.

I found the book rather sweet. It teaches you to follow your heart and not the decisions of others.

The formatting for this book was half hearted at best. Made a great book difficult to get through with odd page breaks and typos.

When i got the book I was very sad. I couldn't tell what half the words were and I didn't know when the chapter ended or started. Very confusing. Dont get it. I love Jane Austen but just not THIS style.
