This is the fourth 'Jane Austen in 21st century' novel by Rosie Rushton I read. The one that I still want to read is Sense&Sensibility of 21st century. Even though I have enjoyed the previous titles read, this one became my favorite while I was reading the first couple of chapters of this novel.

Anna Eliot is a daugter of Walter Eliot, a famous TV show host who has recently been on the media because of this outbursts at wrong occasions. Walter is is difficult economical position; he has lost
Anna is the daughter of Walter Elliot, a washed up has-been TV personality. Walter has been out of work for over a year and has refused to curb his lifestyle, which has caused major financial difficulties for the Elliot’s. Family friend Marina has convinced Walter to move rent-free into an apartment near the marina where he can “house-sit” for her friends, while a nice couple pays to rent out the family estate. Marina begins telling Anna about the couple that is going to be renting out the house ...more

I really like this book, no, I love it! I've just read the original 'Persuasion' before reading this one, as it is adapted from it. You know I just wanted to know the real story before I read the adaption, and usually people say that the original is a lot better. Well in this case, it is not true. This was a lot more interesting and a lot more romantic! Anna is definitally in love, and Felix is one of the sweetest guys I've ever read in a book, and he was in love too, so it just made the perfect ...more
The story line is loosely based on Persuation by Jane Austen. There are some similarities, and of course many differences. For one, the main characters are much younger, also the setting is in the 21st century, and the most important is that the time line covered only a number of months and not years as in the original.

Overall the story line is very similar - a girl meets a boy, then breaks up with him after a pressure from her family, meets him again and gets him back.

I found the characters a b

Persuasion is novel so close to my heart that I have vowed to be the expert on it and all adaptations/retellings that come with it.

This is certainly one of the best I have seen, while it is a teen novel, even now I find it compelling and entertaining.

What I loved about this is it told the reader how Anne and Freddie got together, and how their separation went, they also made the reason that Freddie is home from the services very modern. While I enjoyed a look into the past, it did take up a lot

An up-to-date modern interpretation of one of my favourite Jane Austen novels, Persuasion.

Felix Wentworth is back from fighting in Afghanistan. Anna is still in love with him. Can they overcome the issues which initially pulled them apart and finally find happiness together?

A fantastic book. Rosie Rushton has captured the essence and spirit of Austen's classic but also added her own spin. Austen for the 21st century.

I think Echoes of love is an amazing book and it helps you to understand the books written by Jane Austen more so when you come to read them you have a better understanding of what is going on. Slightly soppy but a completely worthwhile read!
