Revue de presse

..An enjoyable retelling of Jane Austen's Persuasion. It's been cleverly and thoughtfully done and makes for a good read. Recommended. --The Bookbag

Short-listed for the Festival of Romance Best Romantic Read 2011. --Festival of Romance

Présentation de l'éditeur

When do you let your heart rule your head?
When it comes to love, Anna Elliot is stuck in the past. No one can compare to Rick Wentworth, the man she gave up ten years ago at the insistence of her disapproving family. What if she’s missed her only chance for real happiness?
Since Anna broke his heart, Rick has moved on – or so he thinks. Out in Australia, he’s worked hard to build a successful career – and a solid wall around his feelings.
The words ‘forgive and forget’ aren’t in Rick's vocabulary. The word ‘regret’ is definitely in Anna’s. So, when they meet again on his book tour of England, it’s an opportunity for closure.
But memories intrude – the pure sensuality of what they once shared, the pain of parting … And she has to deal with another man from her past, while his celebrity status makes him the focus of unwanted attention.
With Anna’s image-obsessed family still ready to interfere and Rick poised to return to Australia, can she persuade him to risk his heart again?
This contemporary re-telling of Jane Austen’s last completed novel is the second book in Juliet Archer’s Darcy & Friends series, offering fresh insights into the hearts and minds of Austen’s irresistible heroes.

Persuade me est une réécriture moderne de Persuasion. Persuasion étant mon roman préféré, j'attendais beaucoup de cette histoire.

Tout d'abord on retrouve tous les personnages et la plupart des noms reste les mêmes que dans l'originale, ce qui permet de ne pas se perdre: Anna n'est autre que Anne, Rick - Frederick, Lisa - Elizabeth, etc. La seule personne qui m'a posé problème est Minty qui est Lady Russell. Je n'ai peut-être pas fait attention dès le début et peut-être que le fait que son rôle dans le livre soit différent, m'a perturbé.

Mis à part à ça, le fond de l'histoire reste la même. Les deux protagonistes principaux passent des années loin l'un de l'autre, les retrouvailles, les réticences, l'espoir ou la déception. On ressent tous ces sentiments. Seule la forme change. Anna est professeur à Bath et donne des conférences sur la littérature russe. Rick vit en Australie et est célèbre grâce à un livre récemment écrit et publié. Il doit alors faire le voyage jusqu'en Angleterre pour la promotion de son livre. L'époque est totalement différente: internet et autres téléphones portables font partie du décor. En ce qui concerne les lieux Kellynch et Bath sont repris mais d'autres font leur apparation.

Si je devais comparer avec l'originale, il n'y a pas de doute, je préfère la vieille époque et les belles manières. L'avantage d'une réécriture moderne est la profondeur des sentiments amoureux et une approche plus facile parce que moins conventionnelle.

La fin m'a cependant un peu déçue.

Je ne savais pas à quoi m'attendre véritablement avec ce livre avant de lire les premières pages et de me rendre compte que nous étions dans une réécriture moderne (de Persuasion de Jane Austen bien sûr). Et là, je me suis dit "Aïe, j'ai tellement aimé Persuading Annie que ça va être dur d'être au niveau"!

Pourtant, dès la première page, nous sommes face à une entrée en matière des plus intéressantes, un prologue écrit par Mr. Darcy himself! Ensuite, les évènements commencent à se mettre en place et je ne peux m'empêcher de remarquer que Juliet Archer est un peu moins fidèle dans les détails que Melissa Nathan, allant jusqu'à faire vivre cette pauvre Anne à Bath, alors qu'elle déteste cette ville! Bien que je ne comprenne toujours pas l'interet de tels changements, je découvre très rapidemment qu'il existe en réalité deux sortes de réécriture: celles fidèle aux faits, et celles fidèles à l'esprit du livre! Et là, c'est incroyable, à peine quelques pages de lus et on se croit réellement retombé dans Persuasion! Juliet Archer a un don fantastique pour vous transporter dans une ambiance identique, ce qui parait pourtant difficile dans le monde moderne!

Je sais à peine que dire de plus, à partir de ce moment-là, la lecture est juste magique! Il faudra encore faire abstractions de quelques changements un peu agassant et toujours aussi inutiles, mais pas de doute, Anne et le Capitaine sont bien sous mes yeux, à revivre leur histoire!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One Lives in Regret, The Other Never Forgets 25 septembre 2011
Par Meredith (Austenesque Reviews) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Dr. Rick Wentworth, a successful marine biologist/celebrity author, is preparing for his extensive seven-week book tour in England, with a book provocatively titled, Sex in the Sea. With a flourishing career, a modest amount of wealth and popularity, a supermodel girlfriend, and a very attractive physique, it would seem Rick has everything he has ever wanted. But he doesn't. He doesn't have Anna Elliot, who was persuaded by her family to give him up ten years ago and whose rejection still haunts him all these years later. Since Anna's rejection of him, Rick has let disappointment and resentment rule his heart, living by the motto "never forgive, never forget." Now returning to England, Rick wonders if their paths will cross, and if Anna Elliot will feel something like regret for giving up on the love they once had...

Anna Elliot, a professor of Russian Literature does know regret. In fact when she lectures about Anna Karenina and how she gave up everything for her lover, Anna Elliot feels deep regret for not doing the same ten years ago. Instead of following her lover, Anna went to university, finished her studies and became a professor of Russian Literature. Anna has learned to be content with her simple and comfortable life, yet deep in her heart she yearns to travel back in time, to the summer when she was eighteen and hopelessly in love with Rick Wentworth.

How I LOVE these novels by Juliet Archer! Her skillful and stellar retellings are some of my most favorite contemporary Austenesque novels! I love how she tells the story from both the hero and heroine's perspective, she did this in both The Importance of Being Emma and Persuade Me. I feel it adds so much to the story to know what both characters are thinking and feeling, and I vastly enjoyed my time in Rick Wentworth's head! In addition, I greatly admire how carefully and creatively Ms. Archer reinvents the characters to fit modern times. Although she alters their occupations and situations, Ms. Archer keeps her characters' personalities and behaviors true to the originals. Readers will be pleased to see that their favorite characters like Mary Musgrove, Mrs. Clay, and Sir Walter are all very accurately portrayed!

As I did with The Importance of Being Emma, I took great pleasure in the surprising twists Ms. Archer included in her story. I thought it was a great twist that Rick had a supermodel girlfriend and enjoyed how it impacted Anna's thoughts of him. Moreover, I liked the twist about Charles Musgrove and his lingering feelings for Anna, which added some extra tension and conflict to the story!

Ms. Archer continues her magnificent Darcy and Friends Series with an engaging and well-written tale that captures the essence of Jane Austen's Persuasion beautifully! I highly recommend both novels, Persuade Me and The Importance of Being Emma to anyone who enjoys contemporary Austen-Inspired literature! I greatly admire Ms. Archer's work and cannot wait for her next installment in this series! I wonder who the hero will be: Mr. Ferrars, Mr. Bertram, Mr. Tilney, or Mr. Darcy?

I have been waiting on this title to be released since I read The Importance of Being Emma, and I am not disappointed. I did have to settle for reading it on my Kindle App, but again it was well worth the effort.
I hate to give any actual story information away, and here is my take...
The book starts out with a Forward including Darcy making a nice little twist. I liked the addition of having a girlfriend, and the extra bit of drama included with this. James' and Ben being brothers was a nice little twist also. It is Persuasion all the way and well worth the read!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A fresh new take on Jan Austen's Persuasion 13 novembre 2013
Par Amazon Customer Amy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I honestly liked this version of Persuasion. It's a little bit more steamy than Jane Austen's version of course, which it's supposed to be. The author did a relatively good job at conveying the story into a whole new way. You fall in love with the characters. I will say for true Jane Austen fans out there, you may not like it because it remakes it into something that is so not Jane Austen, but it takes her beloved characters and turns them into people you might know now. Not someone over a hundred years ago. It gives you insight into the human heart and mind. This story allows you a peek into how making decisions when one was young and regretting those decisions later can be reconciled and lead them onto a path that you knew they were supposed to be on in the first place.

This work is known as "choc lit" basically, it's a guilty pleasure for the closeted fans who just love romance but don't really want to admit it. The men in these stories are always so handsome and some scenes get steamy.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Be Persuaded to read this! 27 septembre 2011
Par Leah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Persuade Me, if you can't already tell by the title, is a modern-day version of Jane Austen's Persuasion (or so I'm told, since I haven't read Persuasion). I can't compare the two books, but they feature characters with the same names and a similar plot... So I'm going to go out on a limb here and say: They're fairly similar. Juliet's is obviously more modern and `now' though. Although saying that, it was still relatively old-fashioned and posh. The Elliot family were rich, living in big houses in the country and Sir Walter was a Baronet, so it retained everything that was probably in Jane's book. It was a very civilised book!

Despite not having a clue about Jane Austen, and Persuasion in particular, I thoroughly enjoyed Persuade Me. It was a very quick read and one I found difficult to put down. It was definitely more of a character-driven novel than a plot-driven novel, since there were numerous small plots rather than one massive plot that tied the book together. But that wasn't necessarily a problem. I'd have perhaps liked a bit more of what went on when Anna and Rick were teenagers. The whole book revolves around the fact that when they were younger they were in love, but because of Sir Walter they broke up and Rick went to Australia whilst Anna became a Russian professor and it would have been good to flashback to the time when they broke up to give us the full story as to why exactly Anna allowed her father to do that as that's never really touched upon during the novel.

I found the characters to be very fascinating and I daresay most of them will bear a resemblance to Jane Austen's characters should I go back and read Persuasion. I'm sure they have the same characteristics and mannerisms - quite honestly, at times, it felt like Sir Walter had walked out of the 1800s. I found Anna to be a very fascinating character, I thought I would find her weak for allowing her father to overpower her when she was younger, but I didn't. Instead, I felt sympathy for her that her dad had such a dominating effect over her life. I liked her as an adult and I found both her and Rick to be very fascinating characters and I enjoyed their interactions again as they met again after a decade apart. The whole will-they-won't-they aspect was done very well indeed.

I really enjoyed reading Persuade Me. The novel isn't just about Anna and Rick and I found the other characters - particularly the Mosgrove family, I found I really liked them, the same goes for Jenny and Tom, who Anna rents a room from. There were plenty of lovely characters to balance out the somewhat devious ones - Anna's family were just terrible people, and there wasn't one person in Anna's family I liked. Juliet Archer has written a very enjoyable novel and I'll definitely be going back to take a look at her first Jane Austen adaptation, The Importance of Being Emma. Jane Austen fans will really love Persuade Me, and I'll be interested if any one can tell me how similar this novel is to Persuasion, just out of interest. I hugely recommend Persuade Me, I found myself sucked into the story and couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen to Anna and Rick - and everyone else, for that matter!

It is a fairly good retelling of the original. This modernization incorporates the perspective from both the male (Rick/Frederick Wentworth) and female (Anne/Annie Elliott) which was not present in the original. A quick read. It left me curious to know whether the vacuousness of daddy Elliott really exists in current British society or just made up in order to preserve the elements from Austen's novel. Too bad the reacquainted couple didn't tell all the empty headed peacocks around them to buzz off and leave them be so they could have their second chance at love.
