Buy Persuasion by Jane Austen for less than $7 before the Netflix version comes out.

There’ve been a string of book-to-screen adaptations we’ve been so excited to see, but this one stands atop the lot. Call us suckers for period dramas and a romance full of yearning, but we’ve rarely found ourselves disappointed or lead astray by Jane Austen. The well-known author’s books have been turned into movies and TV shows for years, and in just a few days, another will be added to the list. Persuasion, a version of Jane Austen’s book, is coming to Netflix on July 15. But before the movie comes out, you can buy the book on Amazon for less than $7.
One of Austen’s final works, Persuasion tells the story of Anne Elliot roughly seven years after breaking off her romance with Captain Frederick Wentworth. But why did the former young couple go their separate ways? Well, as the title of the book suggests, Anne’s family talked her into giving him up. Now, years later, the two are reunited. Will old emotions come back? Or will Anne’s love take her somewhere else?

A book as interesting as an Austen novel had to be turned into a movie. Enter Netflix. Dakota Johnson, Cosmo Jarvis, Henry Golding, and Oscar-nominated actor Richard E. Grant star in Carrie Cracknell’s version of Austen’s timeless story. This time, Cracknell is putting a new spin on an Austen story. Anne, played by Johnson, breaks the fourth wall and talks to the audience about her thoughts and inner monologues. You can watch the trailer at the link below.

The movie version of Persuasion won’t be on Netflix until July 15, so longtime Jane Austen fans have time to read this classic story. The book is currently only $6.89 on Amazon, and it’s the perfect summer read before you watch the movie. Don’t wait if you love Jane Austen’s work or just want to read the book before you see the movie. Get your copy right now!
