Not my favourite Austen...

A delightful, sweet novel.. but with a little want of the good humoured style of Jane Austen.

    Fanny Price, a poor relation is invited to spend her childhood and later life at her richer relatives abode Mansfield Park. There she is treated like a better piece of furniture. Admirer of her cousins, constant companion of her exhausting aunts and receiver of all kinds of charity, especially by her second oldest cousin Edmund.Fanny is an awkward bundle, who neither belongs to her original family and doesn't really fit in with her new. Her Cousins are vain and full of themselves, her eldest cousin a gambler and do-no-gooder. When the young Miss and Mr. Crawford arrive at the village, the whole social system is shaken up. While her oldest female cousin Miss Bertram (who is already engaged), n a dangerous play with the charismatic Mr. Crawford, her favourite Cousin Edmund is quite smitten with Miss Crawford. After the typical to-and-fro and a big scandal everybody gets what he or she derserves, yet Fanny's character is insufferable. She is SO GOOD, it makes me furious. She never complains openly, suffers in silence and is ALWAYS super friendly. I enjoyed Austen's style of writing, as I usually do, but most of the characters are downright despicable, making it one of her most satirical works. Still, it cannot reach the same level of admiration as "Sense and Sensibility" can, still, I heartily recommend reading it.

    In jungen Jahren zieht Fanny Price, die aus eher ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammt, zu ihren Verwandten, den Bertrams, nach Mansfield Park. Ihr Cousin Edmund ist dort zunächst der einzige, der ihr Wertschätzung und Liebe entgegenbringt. Der Großteil der Geschichte handelt von der Freundschaft zwischen den Bertrams und den Geschwistern Mary und Henry Crawford. Der Schreibstil und die Erzählweise des Romans und die Charaktere haben mir gut gefallen. Zwar ist es leicht, sich in Fanny hinein zu versetzen, aber nicht immer einfach, die anderen Charaktere einzuschätzen, insbesondere die Geschwister Crawford. Leider hat der Roman besonders am Anfang, aber auch immer wieder zwischendrin seine Längen. Deshlb gibt es nur 4 von 5 Punkten.
