review Captain Wentworths Persuasion

Captain Wentworths Persuasion review Ô 3 Insightful and dramatic this novel recreates the original style themes and sardonic humor of Jane Austen’s novel while turning the entire tale on its head in a most engaging fashion Readers hear Captain Wentworth’s side of this tangled story in the revelation of his thoughts and emotions Wentworth initially suffers re. It reads like a cheesy romance novel than anything but I knew that when I picked it up However I found myself laughing and rolling my eyes at the professions of love repeated on just about every page from both Captain Wentworth and Anne It was just excessive And towards the end of the book it seemed like Captain Wentworth ended up sweeping Anne up in his manly man arms and carrying her everywhere I don t mind a little corny carrying his lady love over the threshold type stuff but jeez she does have her own legsThe story itself is alright although the last 70 or so pages are a bit over the top and tedious Plus the ending was not very surprising or original since it reminded me of SPOILERS Mr Darcy Takes a Wife END OF SPOILERS Ms Jeffers writing style was fine nothing special but not bad for this type of book It really annoyed me though that she would use sentances and entire paragraphs pulled word for word from Austen s original Persuasion First of all Austen s style is pretty uniue so it stuck out like a sore thumb Second of all it didn t make sense within the context of the story since the original Persuasion even in the narration was largely from Anne s point of view so for the same words to appear in a book from Wentworth s point of view just didn t make sense Third of all it just seemed lazy and borderline plagarism for her to copy Austen s descriptions word for word like that

Persuasion is possibly my favorite Austen novel and despite the abundance of Pride and Prejudice seuels reimaginings and modern remakes of which I own far too many I was very excited to read this retelling of Persuasion insteadLike all Austen inspired works I try to judge them on their own merits in the context of their own bizarre little sub genre rather than comparing an Austen seuel to another contemporary novel romance etcCaptain Wentworth s Persuasion start after the events of the original novel and then retells in flashbacks the story of Persuasion from the hero s perspective instead of the heroine s There s really nothing wrong with that However the author tries to from time to time write in a Regency style that just doesn t work Then she ll lift a passage or conversation from the original and plop it into the middle of her own pseudo Regency style The result Well nobody really writes like Austen except for Austen These borrowed passages stick out like a pearl among pebbles and make the reader notice the flaws in the author s style all the Spoilers ahoyThe first three uarters of the book are just a simple retelling of what readers already know with a few too many PDAs tossed in to be really true to era Then the final uarter is a tacked on saccharine fairy tale cum smuggler adventure The Wentworths not only have love and his admirable fortune from the war which seemed like a happy enough ending to me but Frederick becomes a national hero And then he gets praised publicly by the Prince And then they get a better title than Anne s father which will make him respect his son in law And then they have twins And they get a perfect estate And then Frederick foils a plot by smugglers to dosomething Exclamation pointHonestly I had stopped caring at this point just wanting the book to be over The most satisfying parts of the story were in the original plot anywayEnd SpoilersThe original story was satisfying enough without having the author s over the top additions at the end This book is at its best right up until the new stuff makes an appearance There s really nothing wrong with imagining new situations for characters to face or new places for them to go but this story takes away any tension by making all the challenges thin and the rewards too great You had an argument with your dad Here have a winning lottery ticket It s just a little absurdAll that being said I did enjoy the bookBut I d far rather read the original one time than give this one a second glance
