Customer Reviews

Favorite Austen novel!Wow I think Mansfield Park is my favorite of Jane Austen's six novels! I emotionally connected with this story more intensely than with the others. And though a lot of people dislike Fanny Price, I loved her and could empathize with her the most deeply out of all the Austen heroines, partly because I can relate to Fanny the most. :)I liked Edmund a lot too, as he's a wonderful person, but he made me angry sometimes because of how unaware he is.Hmmm one of Jane Austen's acquaintances also alluded to this, but Mansfield Park seems to be technically less sophisticated (in language) than for instance Pride and Prejudice; but emotionally, Mansfield Park grabbed me more. I loved Pride and Prejudice too, but I could personally relate more to the lonely, virtually friendless Fanny Price, than with the confident, witty Elizabeth Bennet.5A meat and potatoes readPhew! This is a bit heavy. Suffocating, and tense, MANSFIELD PARK is experienced theough the eyes of Fanny Price, the poor relation who goes to live there at age 10. She grows up there with her sleepy aunt, strict uncle, and four cousins. By the time the Crawford brother and sister come to visit the neighbourhood, we can almost predict the course of the young people's lives...this is the least popular and most controversial of Austen's novels. Fanny is either hated or loved, and Mary Crawford inspires the same feelings. I love Fanny, though she irritates me. Nobody is going to tell her who to marry. She has a secret love, who is in love with somebody else.In the novel, we're taken on a tour of Sotherton Court, a fine old country house. It's the setting for some important scenes.The minor characters jump off the page. Fanny's other aunt, Mrs. Norris, is a nasty woman. But her dialogues are highly entertaining.5Fanny Price, a quiet heroineFanny Price is such an interesting character because she feels things just as deeply as others, but she hides her feelings from everyone, especially if she thinks they might not meet with approval. She starts out afraid of everything, taken from the only home she's ever known, poor, dirty & noisy as it was, and placed in an imposing mansion with wealthy relatives she has never met. She finds only one member of the household that is a sincere and comfortable friend, but she works hard to learn, to fit in, and to endure her nasty Aunt Norris' cruelty. She has remarkable self control and steadfastness. When she's pressured to marry someone she doesn't want to marry, she turns out to have a great deal more courage than anyone in the family could have thought possible. It's a pretty long book (I like that because I can read it over and over and not even get close to memorizing it), and I rank is as #3 on my Jane Austen list [P&P and Persuasion are 1 & 2].Movie notes: The most accurate film version is the 1986 BBC production, so if you want to get an idea of the story, that's a good one to watch, even though it's not as polished as newer versions. Depending on how you feel about reading a long book, it might even be helpful to watch the movie first. The later movie versions of it are not good adaptations; the casting in the 1999 one is excellent but they add some things to do with slavery/sex that are just crude and gross. The newer BBC version with Billie Piper is awful; she does not fit the character at all and the way her character is written reflects many traits that are completely opposite to Austen's Fanny Price.5Thoroughly shockingFrom the emotionally abusive treatment of Fanny in her youth, through to the absolutely appalling harassment of her by Mr. Crawford, sanctioned and approved of by the family, and ending with the shocking conduct of the sisters, this is not a tale of unalloyed bucolic happiness. At times it meanders on in interminable wordage and one wonders if Ms. Austen were not seeking merely to pad out the book.Having said that, it was delightfully shocking. :P I don't mean the treatment of Fanny - the harassment actually left me feeling physically sick - but the sisters' conduct was really quite terrible and made me gasp out loud. It was so terrible! So awful! So delightful. :DAnd then everything is tied up in a neat bow at the end. Fabulous.Not my favourite Austen, but definitely worth the read.4Did not receive a penguin clothbound classic editionThis is a rating based on the copy of the book itself. NOT the actual story itself, which is absolutely amazing and a great classic. That being said;I ordered a used copy of the Mansfield Park Penguin Clothboud Classics, and what I received was a copy published by Modern Library. I don t plan to return it because I live overseas and it takes forever for items to make it to our FPO address.But it is unfortunate that the book I ordered did not arrive from the publisher advertised. It doesn t match the rest of my Jane Austen books from Penguin, which is a bit upsetting. I recommend ordering from thrift books or better world books. Hawking Books missed the mark on this one, and I don t believe I will be placing an order through them again.2Jane Austin Rocks but This edition doesn't!!I've heard it said that Jane Austin's novels are only about a bunch of prissy aristocratic debutantes gossiping about men. Myself as more of a rough and tough cowboy hippie than an aristocrat think that Jane is one of the best writers ever and if you follow the above-referred to conversations you will realize that nearly every sentence is developing a character. These characters are classic = the type one will run into in life so you get an invaluable real education about people.However, this particular edition is OVERSIZED = it's NOT a normal paperback but is 8x11" so it doesn't fit on bedstands, desks in daypacks & etc. It is printed in the US on clear white paper but the print is tiny. I returned it :-(2Well done Dramatization of a great bookAudio books are expensive. I've bought inexpensive audio books before and been terribly disappointed in the quality of the performance. But The Classic Collection is very well done. Frances Barber does a terrific job of bringing Jane Austen's characters to life and giving each their own voice. I am truly amazed at such a quality performance at such a low price.I've read all of Jane Austen books, countless times. But a great audio book can bring out nuances in the books that even through many readings can be missed. France Barber's reading of Mansfield Park is just such a great audio book.I got some gift cards for my birthday and I am going to use them to buy some more of The Classic Collection audiobooks.5What a Bore!This well known and well respected classic was one of the most disappointing books I ever read. l It went on and on with no resolution until the very last chapter which was a synopsis of everyone's circumstances which had been set up by the barrel-full in page after page, chapter after chapter. Why did I stay with it, I thought surely there'd be some sort of plot/character resolution - not! Just a review.1A negation of my previous reviewI have reached a different understanding of Jane Austen's work after many readings over the past sixty-five years. With regard to this particular work, I have parted company with it forever. I must admit that I cannot like Fanny Price nor any other character in this book. Why? The author has great talent, even genius. The characters are skillfully drawn, the plot moves forward apace and we readers do get caught up in the suspense of the drama. But at the end I am left with a bad taste in my mouth, metaphorically speaking. Fanny is a narrow-minded moralist whose fondest dream is to marry her first cousin and that is incest no matter what society one inhabits. The cousin is a man of some talents who is afraid to examine his closely held beliefs. The Crawford sister and brother, representing London sophistication, are horrendous and flawed. There are no redeeming major characters in this book. It is a great portrait of the fundamental mediocrity of societal enclosures. It is terrifying as no "horror" story could ever be.4I doubt I'll ever love any of Jane Austen's novels as much as I ...I doubt I'll ever love any of Jane Austen's novels as much as I love Pride and Prejudice, but I'm nevertheless bemused by why any reader would give this entertaining journey into the past less than a four-star ranking. Perhaps it's because it's viewed as historical fiction. But Jane Austen didn't write historical fiction. She wrote about the times she lived in and has provided us with invaluable insight into the way the English upper crust thought, behaved, and spoke in the Regency era. Entering one of her novels is like entering a time capsule in which nothing has been changed to facilitate our modern point of view. Perhaps Jane Austen is not for those who aren't adventurous time travelers who want a taste of the real thing. As L.P. Hartley so aptly put it, "The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there."4
