Publisher's Summary

Anne Elliot, es la hija mediana de Sir Walter Elliot y la más sensata dentro de su familia. A los 19 años, Anne fue persuadida a rechazar al joven al que amaba, al no ser considerado como un matrimonio conveniente para ella. Ocho años más tarde, las circunstancias han cambiado. Cuando el joven aparece de nuevo en su vida, ella, ya una mujer madura, se reencontrará de nuevo con sentimientos y esperanzas pasadas. Así, toda la tensión de la novela girará en torno a la pregunta: ¿Tendrá Anne una segunda oportunidad en el amor?

Persuasión es la última y la más conmovedora novela de Jane Austen, publicada póstumamente en 1818. Cuenta una historia sobre confusiones amorosas y segundas oportunidades, haciendo un retrato crítico de la época y de la vida de la clase alta inglesa. Así, la autora logra una brillante sátira de la vanidad y las pretensiones sociales, al tiempo que relata una historia de amor matizada con el pesar de las oportunidades perdidas.

Jane Austen Fan and North American Spanish Language Learner

“Persuasion” is one of Jane Austen’s best stories. Jane Austen has a biting wit, and she breathes life into many colorful characters. Her stories are feminist, and give the modern day reader some understanding of the class and social pressures of the early 1800’s. She reworked perfected her manuscripts her whole life, so we get layers and great depth if you are willing to pay attention to her clever asides.

This story tells of a woman of noble birth who was pressured to reject the love of her life due to constraints of the era. She is easily likeable but emotionally abused by sister and father. Jane Austen skewers social constructs throughout the novel contrasting Anne’s noble family with two open and affectionate families that she had declined to marry into. It’s entertaining, but also genius.

So far, in my search for North American Spanish audiobooks of Jane Austen, I have yet to find really great voice actors. I liked the voice of this narrator better than most, she has a beautiful, engaging voice and annunciates clearly. However, I wished she had created more drama in the voices for each character.

There is a great deal of narrative in all Jane Austen novels, and so this voice actor gets away with the relative sameness for narration and voice, but after listening to Carlos Ponce’s extraordinary voice acting, why can’t I find more voice actors of this caliber for Jane Austen unabridged works? Her books deserve the best caliber.

A big complaint I have of this recording was that the chapters of the audio do not align with the actual chapters in the story. (Audible—can you fix this problem?)

For example, Audible has the book divided to be on Chapter 11, when the narrator says Capítulo 17. This causes difficulties for me as language learner trying to keep track between the second language Spanish and the original English version. For that reason, I will probably return this title. However, this is the best North American Spanish Jane Austen audio I have found so far.

Qué manera de destruir un clásico de la literatura universal

Sumamente mal leído.
Un completo desperdicio de mi crédito. Esperaría que la gente de la aplicación no se empiece a conformar con subir contenido tan mediocre.
