Description

Exclusively from Audible

When the self-effacing 10-year-old Fanny Price is sent to live with her wealthy relations at Mansfield Park she seems shy and withdrawn beside her witty and vivacious cousins. Growing up in the Bertram household, she is always treated as an inferior, only finding an ally in her cousin Edmund. But Fanny's steadfast and purposeful character eventually makes her an indispensable part of the household. During the absence of Fanny's uncle, the others become entangled in a maze of flirtation and intrigue upon the arrival of Mary Crawford and her brother Henry. It is only Fanny whose deep but secret love for Edmund remains true despite his fascination with her brilliant but frivolous cousin Mary.

The most serious of Austen's works due to its discussion of religion and religious duty, Mansfield Park also offers a subtle examination of social position and moral integrity, making it one of Austen's most profound works.

Jane Austen was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels which focused on the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Her plots often explore women's dependence on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"Frances Barber offers a sterling performance, bringing life and sparkle to each character....Barber convincingly shifts from lord of the manor to sniveling servitude at the change of a sentence. And her narrative passages transparently tie the whole family together into one beautiful package." (AudioFile)

intelligent, ear-soothing read!

The way Frances Barber voices Mrs Noris is one of my favourite parts! That disdain, that chuckle, that inhalation before she rants on again: brilliant!

Mansfield Park

Mansfield Park has always been my least favourite book by Jane Austen so I left this one for last for listening to. I dreaded it a little and thought it would be long and boring. But it wasn't, and I enjoyed it a lot.

I appreciated this book so much more than I thought I would, and having the audiobook and listening to every little detail made it such a rich experience. This narrator was good; I particularly liked her voices for the men, although I didn't love Fanny's high-pitched voice. I chose this one because the length was shorter.

Fanny is still Fanny, in my opinion a pushover, and Edmund is still Edmund, in my opinion too high-and-mighty, but it is overall funny, and clever, and a good commentary on society of that day.

Charming. Beautifully read. Comparatively boring.

Fanny too perfect, Edmund frustrating, and ending too summarizing to be satisfying. Wanted more dialogue.

Faithful, excellent

Frances Barber delivers a witty and wonderful reading of this strangest and driest of Austen’s novels. I tried several other versions this by far is the best. Fanny retains her awkward timidity without becoming fretful or shrill, the brashness of the Crawfords shines through.

Love this story and love this narrator. She did a wonderful job of distinguishing the individual characters and creating a voice that reflected the personalities.

Entertaining

Slow start but I’m glad I persevered. The plot has a few good twists and the last chapter tied up any loose ends satisfactorily. The audio performance was well done.

Excellent

A thoroughly enjoyable version of Mansfield Park, definitely a recommend to anyone who likes stories about selfish people getting their comeuppance.
Narrator does do voices for each of the characters but they're not too obtrusive, and her pacing and energy is lovely!
