    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 !"
    "Narrator Not Terrible"
    Overall

    I think Flo Gibson does a good job at narrating this book (and I don't know her personally or anything, I swear). I only give it three stars because I think the story itself is not one of Austin's best.

    John-Mark Stensvaag says: "Splendid Novel, Splendid Reading"
    "Please Get This Title With Another Narrator!"
    Overall

    I agree that Walter Zimmerman is the worst narrator I've ever heard. Before joining audible, I've mistakenly checked out countless books on tape from the library narrated by him and I couldn't stand to listen to a single one of those books. It's as though Zimmerman is reading by rote and has no idea what he's saying. I very much want to listen to War and Peace, so to the kind people at audible: Please, please, please try to find a version read by a different narrator. And to other members, I strongly encourage you to avoid of books narrated by Mr. Zimmerman.
