Would you listen to Mansfield Park again? Why?
It's likely I would listen to this again. I enjoyed it more this time, both reading on my Fire and listening at the same time, than I have previously.
What other book might you compare Mansfield Park to and why?
Mansfield Park is a typical Austin satire on manners and morals of British society and can be compared pretty much to any of her others. Those who like Austin might find themselves liking Thackeray's *Vanity Fair*, too. I consider him a superior author to Austin.
What does Wanda McCaddon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Her voice has character, but character that matches the story and doesn't distract from it. Her characterizations are (generally) well done, and sometimes very well done.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
My last reading of Mansfield Park didn't impress me much, so I was surprised to find that this time I did want to keep going until it was done. I got much more out of it, perhaps because of my own level of maturity increasing, as well as Wanda McCaddon's narration.

Narrator was great for the price and this is by far one of my top Jane Austen books, I suggest it.

Would you consider the audio edition of Mansfield Park to be better than the print version?
I find Jane Austen difficult to read so it brilliant to listen to
Who was your favorite character and why?
Fanny Price a sweet girl with a strong sense of values
Which character – as performed by Wanda McCaddon – was your favourite?
Is does most of them very well but she does a very good Lady Bertrem
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
The 1983 version of Mansfield park is done really well through to story what I like, Fanny Price is a much to strong persona in the later film
Any additional comments?
Just a good and easy listen
This is an enjoyable reading of Mansfield Park. Wanda McCaddon is not tempted (as in other adaptations of this novel) to make Fanny into Elizabeth Bennett.
