Really disliked this book. The main character did not feel like a Jane Austen character at all.. a very submissive, quiet, conservative girl, contented with whatever sympathy she got, and at the end the love that she wanted was so whisy-washily decided that just made be angry 😅

On that event they removed to Mansfield; and the Parsonage there, which, under each of its two former owners, Fanny had never been able to approach but with some painful sensation of restraint in her eyes, as everything else within the view and patronage of Mansfield Park had long been.

Book Haul Pic 2! 💕📚💕

I added another Penguin Clothbound hardcover to my collection today! This time it's Madame Bovary, which I've been wanting to get for awhile now! I love the dark purple and orange cover! 😍 And I've been resisting this Mansfield Park Chiltern edition for ages now but I finally caved and got it today! The picture doesn't do it justice - it's exquisite! It's so pretty it actually makes my heart ache! ❤📖❤ #bookhaul

I have a feeling I'll be hunting down the rest of them sometime in the future! 😁 @SRWCF SAME! I CAN'T STOP GAZING AT THEM! 😍 @Becker I'm thinking about also ordering The Tenant of Wildfell Hall too...it was just as beautiful! I can't resist them! 💕📚 4mo

Wishing the year was over for many reasons - 1 being that I‘m looking forward to not being so busy! @Moll has a great list of reads - half of which were already on my TBR!

As in years past, I‘ll definitely be taking this list further into 2022 than January.

Thanks as always to @monalyisha for being a great matchmaker!

24-5 Oct 2021 (audiobook)
Listening to Billie Piper‘s narration of Mansfield Park has encouraged me to watch her as Fanny Price. Fanny is not, however, a favourite. Why is she so sickly? She does not seem to be able to walk for more than 10 minutes! As a heroine, I much prefer Lizzie Bennett‘s strength and athleticism. I also deplore Fanny‘s passivity and her inability to express her needs or attempt to change her situation.

mjtwo On this reading, I actually wondered whether there is an insinuation of abuse by her uncle. Their confrontation after Fanny rejects Henry Crawford was quite violent and gave an impression of earlier violence in her attic room. Similarly his attitude towards his pretty niece on his return from Antigua seemed a little off kilter. (edited) 7mo

About thirty years ago Miss Maria Ward, of Huntingdon, with only seven thousand pounds, had the good luck to captivate Sir Thomas Bertram, of Mansfield Park, in the county of of Northampton, and to be thereby raised to the rank of a baronet‘s lady, with all the comforts and consequences of an handsome house and large income.

Next Saturday will be a double feature: 1999 at 2 pm CST, and 2007 at 4:30 pm.

Also, a new party was added for 1999 next Sunday at 8 pm CST.

Zoom invites have been sent to those who are signed up for tomorrow, but there is still time to join us.

Completed my Jane Austen collection today. 😊 I love how each book is a different edition, and carries its own memories. Someday I'd like a boxed set, but I feel very attached to these 6 for now.

Current record: 4/6 (Still have to read Emma and Mansfield Park 🌻)

Leftcoastzen It‘s great that they all have a history/ memories with you .sets are nice too . 13mo

I did keep up with the #Pemberlittens chapter-a-day but am horribly behind in posting Litsy reviews...

Even the worst Jane Austen is better than 95% of books out there... And yes, I think like most people, this is my least favourite of Austen's work. It drags in places, it doesn't have the same humour as her other works and Fanny is a little flat as a heroine. But the prose is beautiful and there are places where classic Jane shines through.

sprainedbrain ‘even the worst Jane Austen is better than...‘ YES, my friend! 🥰🙌🏼 13mo

Almost finished reading this monstrosity of a book! Although it‘s not my favorite Austen (shocker), I don‘t think Fanny is as loathesome as some people say. I think Fanny has an admirable sense of self-control considering how abused she has been. While this is a more modern interpretation, I believe this book has a lot to say about anxiety and psychological abuse. #pemberlittens

Brandon Taylor wrote the excellent Real Life and also always has an excellent tweet or two about Jane Austen. I would like to read this version of Mansfield Park?

#pemberlittens

KVanRead I thought the same thing during our group read!! This pairing would be so interesting! (edited) 14mo
batsy @KVanRead It really would! It might not have been a happily-ever-after but it would have led to more interesting convos between the two than what Fanny had to endure from Edmund 😬 14mo
