Mansfield Park (version 2)

Gelesen von Karen Savage

(4,765 Sterne; 920 Bewertungen)

Miss Frances, the youngest Ward sister, "married, in the common phrase, to disoblige her family, and by fixing on a lieutenant of marines, without education, fortune, or connexions, did it very thoroughly. She could hardly have made a more untoward choice." Some years later, pregnant with her ninth child, Mrs. Price appeals to her family, namely to her eldest sister and her husband, Sir Thomas Bertram, for help with her over-large family. Sir Thomas provides assistance in helping his nephews into lines of work suitable to their education, and takes his eldest niece, Fanny Price, then ten years old, into his home to raise with his own children. It is Fanny's story we follow in Mansfield Park. (Summary by Karen Savage with text from Mansfield Park)

Fantastic Reader!

(5 Sterne)

Really well done. Good reading pace--never too fast or too choppy. I never once got lost keeping track of the characters, since Karen Savage gave each character his or her own voice. Thank you very much for taking the time to read aloud and record this:)

all around fantastic

(5 Sterne)

great job by Karen Savage (as always). I was a bit hesitant about starting this book after hearing reports that it is a bit slow. I loved it from the beginning but the ending I had so looked forward to was rushed and so few details given that I was really disappointed in that part.

Mansfield Park

(5 Sterne)

An interesting book made more enjoyable by the reader, Karen Savage. Ms. Savage, thank you for making the time and effort to read these books for Librivox!

Mansfield Park -- I'd like to visit

(4,5 Sterne)

This less popular work of Jane Austen features a heroine who is more shy and less courageous than any others Austen has conceived , and there is no character who brings a comic relief to the proceedings . But yet again every character receives just what is deserved in the end and even when you know how it's all going to turn out from multiple readings, the plot and character descriptions are rich enough to keep your interest. . Reader Karen Strange gives every character a voice and attitude which perfectly fits my vision -- or did she actually form my vision of each character? It doesn't matter. I would listen to Ms Strange read a grocery list. I recommend this reading and this novel to any Austen fan and to people looking for a pleasant and quietly romantic historical experience .

Excellent reading

(5 Sterne)

Karen is one of my favourite readers, and this reading does not disappoint. I think that just as Henry Crawford does, she has a happy knack for giving the characters in different voices very well. Aunt Norris, Lady Bertram, Edmund, Tom, Henry and Mary Crawford and Fanny are all perfect.

(5 Sterne)

One of the great Librevox readers. Mrs. Norris has to be the most hateful, annoying character in all of literature. I love this book but man, it is so hard to listen to all her speeches. Anyway, thanks so much for the fantastic reading of all characters.

lovely tale, but glad times have changed

(4 Sterne)

karen savage is a wonderful reader when it comes to voicing characters and giving proper emphasis to words. however there are times when her reading is rushed, quick paced, she knows the section of reading contains no serious information to the major story line and rushes through it while still keeping characters straight and such. its in those sections that i find myself rewinding several times to gather all the details in my mind. the story itself is very nice. classic 1800s upper class tale, which makes me glad times have changed & 1st cousins dont get into relationships anymore (in such approved light at least lol). if you like 1800s upper class romances then you will enjoy this book.

great reader

(4 Sterne)

Have listened to this version twice and read almost all of Austen at least once. Excellent reading. Karen Savage is a legend!! I have listened to everything on librivox that she's read. After my second listening I wasn't too charmed by the story, however. A lot more emphasis on the ideas at the time of how a proper woman should be, so it is less relatable than Pride and Prejudice or Sense and Sensibility even. But if you're an Austen fan you will still enjoy.
