There are, as many of you avid readers are aware of, authors who either need money or are stuck in a contract and need to produce more books on demand. There are, additionally, a limit to many people's imaginations and therefore, to put such a person in a situation as the aforementioned, would be to expect a book very reminiscient of a former, perhaps better thought out and better written book. <br/><br/>Mansfield Park, being one of Jane Austen's latter books seems to follow such a pattern, a fact that I regret to admitt being myself a long-time fan of Austen's Pride &amp; Prejudice. <br/><br/>Even with my blinders on I can still see clearly the similarities between Mansfield Park and Pride and Prejudice and it is shocking. There is the involvement of the clergy, the marriage proposals that are rejected due to the perception of the male's character and the same siblings eloping and running off. The only difference though, is that more of the characters do not have such a happy ending.

What can I say, another Jane Austen classic. To me, the characters aren't as easy to personalize as characters in her other books, but for an Austen follower, a must-read.

I really liked this book. It was no Pride &amp; Prejudice ... but none others have been either. this was still VERY well written, as is most Jane Austen novels. There was a want for a bit more substace in the ending, or a better described ending...but it was the proper ending...just in shorter version. This book is definately worth the read! I recommend it!

...would be the term that best describes our protagonists. While presenting them as a wonderful inventory of all the most laudable virtues imaginable, Austen forgot to make them interesting or relatable. When contrasted with her other heroines, Fanny is unforgivable.

This is Austen's most underrated work. It's an especially timely read.

Although Austen's books are labeled romance, they often have very little romance in them. This book has Fanny in love with her cousin and completely aware of it, but he doesn't love her back until the very last chapter.
