Does anyone out there love this book? Can you help me?
I knew going in this was not one of her most loved works. Also knowing how I adore some of her other books, I thought I could get past that. It seems I’m not immune after all.
The biting social criticism is interesting but I’m finding the characters somewhat hateful. Fanny and Edmund, the only two likeable characters, are still annoying at times. I’m not quitting, I’ll finish it. But I’m finding it difficult to get into and that’s frustrating me to no end.
Austen is an author I go back to from time to time and always find something new to enjoy but this one may be a one and done for me. I don’t see Mansfield Park falling into my re-reading pattern.
If Mansfield Park is a favorite of yours, can you tell me why?
