My first book review-persuasion

I am not sure if I have the right to review the book of literary legend like Austen’s work but still I am trying to tell what I felt after reading the book persuasion.It is really hard for a book to please me but this is an exception.

I became an ardent fan of Jane Austen a few years back when I first read pride and prejudice .I never liked love stories until I read that book ,but I can never refrain myself from liking Austen’s work because her work is surely a masterpiece.

Persuasion is the story of a sensible girl called Anne Elliot who is of least importance in her house ,she is not loved and rarely noticed by her dad Mr Walter Elliot or sister Elizabeth.Anne’s decisions are always influenced by others especially by Lady Russell ,she is persuaded by others to take wrong decision in her nineteen years by rejecting Mr Wentworth which she corrects in her twenty eight year.

It is a beautiful love story of Anne and captain Wentworth.Their insecurities ego pride and above all love,and Mr Elliot Anne’s cousin a cruel person who looks good in outward appearance and a good friend Mrs Smith are beautiful characters that captures the readers heart. As I read about twenty pages I clearly knew how the story is gonna end so there was no element of suspense but the sequence of scenes conversation and style of writing gripped me on to reading the book.I can relate myself to Anne at the time she decides’ is it right is it wrong,will my deeds hurt others,am I doing the right thing ,thinking speaking to myself questioning and again rethinking’ it is the same thing  which I do.I think there is no better writer than Austen who understand and depicts human feelings.

The fact is true that we never converse in such long paragraphs but may be people in her time spoke in long paragraphs.

But one of the the most remarkable thing is she never kills her main characters like other authors do.It really creates an impact but only weak writers I believe kill their characters to create the impact ,whereas strong writers capture the heart of the reader without killing their characters.The strong writers like Austen captures the heart of her reader by her beauty of writing and does creates an everlasting impact on me.Recently I have read lot of books which was pathetic I am not gonna name it,but after reading persuasion I have a big broad smile on my face.

It is surely one of the best books I ever read.

Is harry potter your all time favorite??

“Y do you still read Harry Potter?”This is the question asked to me by all my friends and well wishers .They ask me”why dont you try to grow up why are you still reading children books?”.Perhaps I dont have an answer, I love harry potter may be because it was my first book,or I fell a prey to unfolding magical charm of Rowling’s writings.Or indeed may be I didnt wish to grow up.I stick around harry potter reading it rereading it  like some sort of bible  completely drawn towards it.I read harry potter for the first time in my fourth grade and still keep on reading it.

A girl of my age must actually be drawn into romances but I dont know why I dont give a damn to it .I read them just because it is a book and I if I love the plot but nothing creates an impact like harry potter did.I can recollect a few years back a teacher of my college was criticizing harry potter I felt like hitting her hard on the face but manners I hold myself back (especially to escape the punishment aftermath).I read books,It is better to say I gobble books down November I read more than 50 books.I am banned to read books in my house .My parents will disinherit me if I read anymore books.They have stopped buying me books .I actually dont like ebooks but now they are my only refuge .I sneak out at night to read books.I am not sure is it because of harry potter being my first book I am not easily pleased with books.I read Chetan Bhagats books just to laugh hard.I have read more books than anyone around me still never found one better than harry potter.

I am at times insane until my sixth grade  believed I too would get a letter from Hogwarts.I make sure I read the whole series at least once in a month.Is it because of Harry a poor innocent boy with a scar who is ready to sacrifice his life for his friends,the wonderful Weasley family,Hedwig ,Hagrid or I wish to have a principal Dumbledore with his long beard and quick wit,the quiddich ,the snitch,the gryffindor common room,the dark forests,the phoenix,dobby the house elf  or butter beer and three broomstick or is it Snape’s selfless love towards Harry or power hungry Voldemort or the magic itself which unfolds in every page bewitched me.

I wish Hogwarts castle was true Harry was real the hallows and hocruxes were real .I wish to walk in those corridors ,practice those spells learn transfiguration and charm run around wear cloaks be a witch but almost everything is impossible .but as long as harry potter books makes kids to read it is magic in itself.Magic that introduces kids to read makes them to dream to imagine .What do you think?
