"Here's harmony!" said she; "here's repose! Here's what may leave all painting and all music behind, and what poetry only can attempt to describe! Here's what may tranquilize every care, and lift the heart to rapture! When I look out on such a night as this, I feel as if there could be neither wicke...

A few years ago, a friend of mine told me that "Mansfield Park" was her least favourite Jane Austen novel, because she thought Fanny Price an annoying, overly prissy, well-behaved and too timid character. Now that I've finally read it, my conclusion is that I don't share her opinion. I thought that ...

*3.5 starsI enjoyed this book, but I wasn't really that invested in the story or the characters. I do enjoy that this book doesn't focus that much on a romance, and that the romance which was in here was good. But this isn't my favorite Jane Austen book.

This one had its ups and downs, in my opinion. It was almost chapter-by-chapter. I was bored during some and enjoyed others. I did enjoy the overall story... It was just slow to me at times. *Review written on October 29, 2014.*

Please note that I gave this book 2.5 stars, but rounded up to 3 stars on Goodreads.This book was over 500 pages of nothing happening besides everyone around one young woman (Fanny Price) trying to convince her that she doesn't know her own mind, that she should be grateful that the neighborhood Lot...

As a heads up, although I do intend to keep this free of spoilers that are not tagged, this is a re-read (for possibly the third time), so if you want to remain completely and totally even hint-free on what happens in this book (though, given this is Austen, there are a few things you can probably g...

I got easily bored reading this one. Fanny is one of Austen's more vulnerable characters, for the mere fact that she observes more and invariably feels more.

It just seemed to me that it was time to read some Jane Austen. The one of her works I know the least is Mansfield Park. And so, I picked it up. Austen, is a bit like Dickens, in that she never uses three words to describe something if twenty words would suffice perfectly well. So, the book is a bit...
