Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Mansfield Park

Mansfield Park - Jane Austen Mansfield Park -  Jane Austen

A very good story, as expected from Jane Austen. But I have to say, it's not one of my favorites.

 

I had a hard time finding any of the characters sympathetic - Fanny and Edmund came across as so virtuous as to be prudish, while the rest were just foolish - except for Mrs. Norris, of course, who was just plain stupid and nasty. I think had Susan been more in the story I'd have ended up liking her best. But still, I enjoyed the reading of the story and it will probably be one I revisit every few years or so.
