38. "Persuasion" - Jane Austen

Bollocks! I've written for ten minutes and all I have to show for it is this lousy t-shirt. OK, not even that.

3.75 out of 5.0 Pangalactic Gargle Blaster.

I think Persuasion is my favorite Austen album. It's more mature than the other novels and there's a lot more personally at stake for Anne Elliot than Austen's other heroines.

That's exactly my point, Matteo. It shows a maturing of Austen's thinking, which I appreciated so much more than, say, "Emma."

You. Me. Together. When?

I don't get this review. Did you like the book? 3.75 isn't too bad, but the review makes it seem like you didn't like it at all. I'm confused.

Liked it more than other Austen books (except "Pride and Prejudice," but that was my cherry-poppin' Austen read).

But overall, it's not a top 100 book. Maybe top 200.

I just realized I wrote "Austen album" as if it were a CD. Track seven is awesome!

Yes, we must get together soon!
