4.0 out of 5 stars Austen's Darker Side March 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Most readers might pick up this book expecting a light witty Austen tale, like her more famous novels Pride and Prejudice or Emma. This is more serious than some of her other novels. Now do not get me wrong, Austen is a personal favorite of mine. However, I did not enjoy this book as much as her other ones.
The story opens with young impoverished Fanny Price being adopted by her aunt and uncle. She is befriended by her cousin Edmund. This is almost a spin on Cinderella. The Craawfords arrive and after flirting with Julia and Maria Bertram, Fanny's cousins, Henry Crawford develops an attatchment to Fanny. Edmund also develops an attatchment to Mary Crawford while Fanny is in love with Edmund. Henry proposes to Fanny, but finding his character lacking, she refuses. Fanny's uncle cannot undersand her reasons for declining and sends her home to her poor birth family. Fanny's instincts prove true when Henry has an affair with married Maria. Fanny is invited back to Mansfield and Edmund admits that his intrests have shifted to Fanny and Fanny returns his affections.
All ends well. Yet one cannot help bu to compare Austen's lighter stories with this tle of morals. Where in other novels the characters learn from their flaws, Fanny seems to be flawless. For example, in Pride and Prejudice, Lizzy Bennet learns from her Pride and accepts peope for who they are. In Emma, Emma learns to mind her own business and learns from Pride. Marianne learns from her own fiery passion in Sense and Sensibility. In Persuasion, Anne learns not to care what others think(not to be so easily persuaded) and to follow her own heart. In Northanger Abbey, (my personal favorite) Catherine learns that life is not what it seems to be in novels. However, Fanny seems to be faultless and finds easily the faults in others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Pride and Prejudice, but Good! April 20, 2013
By Lee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like this novel by Austen and didn't find the chief character, Fanny, insipid at all as some reviewers claim. In rejecting the suitor her uncle prefers for her, Henry Crawford, she is anything but a wimp, unlike Maria Bertram who goes ahead with a disastrous marriage to Rushworth! The aunts are comical, but the novel is not nearly as good a satire as Pride and Prejudice, my favorite Austin. And the book ends as we hoped it would, with Fanny getting the suitor she really deserves!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mansfield Park April 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very moving story about a young girl's plight during the 18th century. Children were treated as non-entities, and very little care was given to their feelings. At that time in history, everything was about personal standing in society, and that was determined by a person's wealth. Fanny Price, at the age of 10, is taken from her immediate family because she has none of either, and is placed in a situation with wealthy relations where she is treated practically as a servant. According to these relatives, this is necessary to insure Fanny's standing in society for when she becomes of an age to be "brought out". Her wealthy relatives think it their duty to help her even though they have no real love for her. It's more of an obligation than anything more. She is treated well enough, but never really accepted into their lifestyle by her girl cousins. However, one of the boy cousin's, Edmund, having a kind heart, does everything he can to include her in activities that will make her lot in life happier. She forms an attachment to him, and finds her life tolerable even though she misses her family and one particular brother immensely. The story is very interesting, and well written. It kept me reading with anticipation to the end. Another great Austin book.

I thought this a bit dragged on for a while, and didn't capture me as some of her other books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely June 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mansfield Park is not the best of Austen books, maybe even the most boring, but still worth reading because of the characters and the story and most of all because of the ending. I love Austen's ending, always good. There is nothing wrong with good endings. Fanny is a poor relation to the family who takes as a favor to her mother. Fanny lives in a cold attic and is treated almost as a servant, she serves everyone in the household. And yes, there is Edmund, the second son who is her friend, but to me he was not really her friend. True, he spends time with her, treats her fairly and loves her, but in some moments he betrays her allowing certain treatment from his sisters and an aunt. Fanny is strong, smart and she knows who she is. She dreams, she loves, she writes and she believes that one must follow one's heart and in the end this is what she gets, the love she dreamt about. The story is more complex than that, but it is for the new reader to find out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Austen scores O.K. June 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Perhaps it is because I do not come from Great Britain but constant reminders that nearly everyone in the book comes from people of means and snub anyone who doesn't, not matter how worthy they are, gets old. Still, well written and the characters are well formed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A political allegory April 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Yes... It has elements of a love story, and it provides uncanny illustrations of human emotion, personality, and pretenses. In this way, some might find the story to be much slower than in Jane Austen 's other novels. But... if you read it (or re-read it as the case may) with an eye for political allegory..
Sir Thomas representing government, Edmund representing the Church, and each other character representing various personality types, then the heavy theme of nature vs. nurture will provide fodder for even deeper contemplation. This is one of my favorite Jane Austen novels.
