This engrossing novel by Jane Austen is famous for its realism and moralistic tone. It introduces us to Fanny Price a girl from an impoverished family who is sent to live with her aristocratic uncle and aunt. The discriminating attitude of the patricians with the underprivileged and their licentious behaviour has been masterfully highlighted in this magnum-opus. Captivating!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gets better upon further acquaintance! One of the 2 longest novels by Jane Austen, this one depicts the life of poor Fanny Price who, upon the generosity on her uncle and aunt, is welcome to their home of Mansfield Park as a sort of “charity project”. Here she will grow among here snobbish cousins Maria and Julia, but also through her relationship with her cousin Edmund who will forge her character and give her firm principles of which she will never relinquish, even when a certain Henry Crawford comes into the picture and tries to seduce her. Of all the 6 novels, this used to be the one I most dreaded for one simple reason: I use to hate Fanny Price. Why? Because she made me think of a certain heroine of the Bronte sisters I still struggle with, for I saw them as a lot alike in character and behavior. But I must admit that Mansfield Park was better the second time around. I actually enjoyed Fanny and her grounded and highly reflected behavior, especially when it comes to Henry Crawford. I also liked how the author developed the relationship of Edmund and Mary Crawford and all the struggles surrounding it on his side. So all in all, this novel grows on you as you reread it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Entertaining Perhaps not my favorite Jane Austen novel, but still enjoyable. I never really became a huge fan of Fanny's, I found her frustrating at times, but she's still a very believable character.
