    One of Jane Austen's most complex and mature works, Mansfield Park shows the writer at the top of her form, tackling the manners and customs of early 19th-century society with wit and irony that still resonate with readers two centuries after the book's initial publication. Flo Gibson's compelling narration gives perfect voice to the trials and tribulations of Fanny Price, sent at a young age to live with her rich relations.

    Michael says: "Wonderful story !"
    "TERRIBLE NARRATOR"
    Overall

    I have never had such a hard time understanding someone. She sounds like an 80 year old chain smoker. I listened for an hour and didn't have any idea what was going on!

    In the India of the mid-1970s, Indira Gandhi's government has just come to power. It institutionalizes corruption and arbitrary force, most oppressive to the poorest and weakest people under its sway. Against this backdrop, in an unnamed city by the sea, four people struggle to survive. Dina, Maneck, and two tailors, the Untouchables Om and Ishvar, who are sewing in Dina's service, undergo a series of reversals.

    Karen P. Smith says: "Praise for the Narrator as much as the Writer"
    "Keep listening"
    Overall

    I'll begin by stating that I almost never give 5 stars. I probably would have given 4.5 if I could. The first 1/3 of the book, I kept thinking that I would not be able to finish the book. I was essentially bored and not really caring for the characters. Once I hit the halfway point, I could not stop listening! Please, at least go to the halfway point if you are bored. You will find yourself sucked into a web of political anguish with a first had perspective. These characters get the real meaning of friendship and family.
