I love Jane Austen. I really do. Heck, I co-own an entire site dedicated to indie published Austenesque books. So love might be slightly understating it.
There is one book of hers, however, that I just cannot love – Mansfield Park. I admit that I have problems with Sense and Sensibility too. It’s not my favorite, but I do not HATE it like I HATE Mansfield Park.
Truthfully, the biggest problem with Mansfield Park is its complete and utter lack of a hero. Nancy talked about this on Indie Jane, basically a post about why Edmund Bertram (the “hero” of MP) sucks so bad. After our recent Indie Jane group read of MP I went on a small rant on Instagram about WHY I HATE EDMUND BETRAM.
And I thought you all should see it. Aren’t you just lucky?
