Mansfield Park is certainly not my favorite Jane Austen book. That being said, it's better than most books I've read, and I recall not being able to but it down when I first read it 10 years ago. Fanny Price is not necessarily a lovable character - give me Elizabeth Bennett anytime - but in her own moral way she is heroic in standing up for what she believes in. There are plenty of characters to dislike, and Austen excels in coloring them in a less than sympathetic manner.
