#BlogHop #Giveaway :: Jane Austen

Announcing the Jane Austen Giveaway Hop
Featuring Jane Austen Inspired Books

October 19th to 24th

There has been only one exception so far, but in general I am not a real fan of retellings or 'inspired' novels. So, I am going to feature my favourite Jane Austen Novel.

We have all been more or less to blame ...
every one of us, excepting Fanny'

Taken from the poverty of her parents' home, Fanny Price is brought up with her rich cousins at Mansfield Park, acutely aware of her humble rank and with only her cousin Edmund as an ally. When Fanny's uncle is absent in Antigua, Mary Crawford and her brother Henry arrive in the neighbourhood, bringing with them London glamour and a reckless taste for flirtation. As her female cousins vie for Henry's attention, and even Edmund falls for Mary's dazzling charms, only Fanny remains doubtful about the Crawfords' influence and finds herself more isolated than ever. A subtle examination of social position and moral integrity, Mansfield Park is one of Jane Austen's most profound works.

The first Jane Austen Novel I read was Mansfield Park and since then I have read all of her work. But this book remains my favourite till date.

However the winner of this giveaway will get to choose one of the following books:
Sense and Sensibility 
Pride and Prejudice

  1. I would choose "Mansfield Park". I have read the library version. I got one of those big volumes that has several of the novels in one book but it's too heavy for me to hold up. I don't have my own version. My favorite is Persuasion but I'm willing to give others a fair chance. it's unusual that you read Mansfield Park first. I don't think I've ever heard of that. I think Fanny is a wonderful character. Lots feel she's wimpy but I feel it takes courage to stand up for what she feels is right.
