    The East Room: Mansfield Park

    Vivid, fast-paced, easier to read in comparison to Austen's other novels. Mansfield Park seems to be a more apparent mash up of many of Austen's conflicting themes about women, men, sexuality, family, duty, independence, liberty and virtue. If you're expecting socially aware text of the slave trade and the exploitation of the working classes. You wont find much. But Mansfield Park is brilliant in its ability to expose the hypocrisy of charity, the condescension of helping others up without treating them as your equal or the futility of assistance without consulting or thinking of a persons actual needs and feelings. In Fanny's physical weakness and belated self-sufficiency, it also illustrates the danger of creating dependency rather than empowerment. At the same time, this is a fantastic illustration of classism, as Austen reveals her partiality for middle-class principles while maintaining a particular regard for the upper-classes. Illuminating and though-provoking, Mansfield Park speaks for sincerity, ethics and wisdom in a world where appearances are everything.

    Not as satisfying as her other works

    I’m not an enamoured of this novel as the author’s other works. The main characters couldn’t engage my interest. Fanny and Edmund were not as memorable as Darcy and Elizabeth or Anne and Frederick.

    Ended nicely

    Took me awhile to finish but all's worth as the story ended nicely. Good read on conduct, godly values and principles.
