Persuasion I've been trying to read the books coming up for discussion at the three local book groups, one of them had this listed for the July meeting which I didn't go to, mainly because I couldn't finish this book. I've gotten thru about 100 or so pages and it's just boring as can be, it's just like a Harlequin novel, except in a more flowery stilted style.

Am I missing something here? Is there some payoff if I keep reading? While it somehow get magically better? Or is this just not one of her better books?

I do like the movies of her books and other books from that period, brought to life by actors and with period costumes and sets, they're amazing to watch (and perhaps the condensation to two hours or so helps as well). Just boring as hell to read.
