An excellent reading for an excellent book

I wonder why Persuasion is not as popular and acclaimed as it deserves. To me, this is Jane Austen's more modern novel. Always playing on the brink of unbalance, the more Anne Elliot's voice is gaining confidence, the more other characters' self-assurance is falling to pieces. Greta Scacchi's excellent reading brings Anne Elliot's voice and all other characters alive. She definitely pours emotion to the dialogue.
