    "Jane Austen knows how to write and spin a tale. You can get lost in the characters as well as the story in any of her books, and "Sense and Sensibility" is no exception!"

    #4Mansfield Park

    Mansfield Park
    Mansfield Park Taken from the poverty of her parents' home in Portsmouth, Fanny Price is brought up with her rich cousins at Mansfield Park, acutely aware of her humble rank and with her cousin Edmund as her sole ally. During her uncle's absence in Antigua, the Crawford's arrive in the neighbourhood bringing with them the glamour of London life and a reckless taste for flirtation. Mansfield Park is considered Jane Austen's first mature work and, with its quiet heroine and subtle examination of social position and moral integrity, one of her most profound.

    "A little bit on the longer side but non the less it is a very interesting read. The characters are created very well throughout the story and dialogue. Jane Austen has put out some superb book and this one by far is on top of the list in my opinion. I do not want to give out any spoilers but give it a shot if you come across it for the right price."

    "I know a number of Jane Austen's novels. I don't consider "The History of England" to be one of her best pieces of work. There are others such as Sense and Sensibility that could be considered better."
