Always Carry a Book!

I am a fantasy fan first and foremost! I will, however, read anything interesting as long as its not crime fiction. I never go anywhere without a book/ebook!

Persuasion - Jane Austen The second half of Persuasion was a great improvement on the first, however, this book was still not to the same standard i remember Pride and Prejudice and Emma being.
Other than Anne and Mary, the characters were boring and lacked individuality. The storyline was also nothing special and the humour wasn't as rich as it was in Austen's other books.
The cleverly written social commentary on the class system and sexism was very interesting and i appreciated the boldness of her presenting such challenging views for that time period. Austen's forward thinking ideas are something i've always enjoyed in her books.
