Publisher's Summary

Award-winning Jane Austen narrator Alison Larkin is back with this hugely entertaining recording of Mansfield Park, followed by fascinating bonus material!
Eleven-year-old Fanny Price is "adopted" by wealthy relatives and leaves her life of poverty in Portsmouth for a much better life at Mansfield Park. Dependent, vulnerable, and often ignored, her only true friend in her new family is her cousin Edmund. When the reckless, flirtatious Crawfords arrive at Mansfield Park, Fanny must stand up for her principles in order to protect her heart.
Mansfield Park is followed by opinions on the novel by Austen's family and friends, never before heard on audio.
Like most writers, Jane Austen was very interested in what her family and friends thought of her books. She wrote down their opinions of Mansfield Park, recording both the bad and the good. These opinions dating from 1814 and 1815 will give solace to any writer whose work has been criticized, and will amuse and delight Austen fans worldwide.
"Alison Larkin's narration will captivate listeners from the first sentence. Her delicate voice and perfect English accent sweep the listener back in time, right into the lives of the characters.... Austen's nineteenth-century writing style flows off Larkin's tongue, making the dense passages easy to understand." - AudioFile Magazine

WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL!

I just listened to this as part of The Complete Novels by Jane Austen read by Alison Larkin which was recently released as it is the only Jane Austen I had not heard Ms Larkin narrate and OH this is SUCH a wonderful recording! At the end there are letters too from people Jane Austen knew - friends and family - and they are fascinating. A delightful, wholly accessible listen from an A List narrator with additional material at the end of it. Who could ask for anything more?

Loved It

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. I loved fanny's story. The entire tale from beginning to end was well developed and the narrator kept the story moving right along. Each character had a distinctive voice and many times I felt like jumping in a wringing that aunt's neck. but that is neither here nor there. As Fanny grows she learns that being independent helps her to become the woman of principle that she became. I loved the story.

The reading!!!


The voice used for Fanny is insipid,flat, weak and I I would have given up only for how much I love the novel.
