] ] ________
] ] I readMansfield Revisited by Joan Aiken, Though not as good as the origanal(small wonder) I enjoyed it =) It's about Fanny's sister Susan, after Fanny's married.
] Iīve also read Joan Aikenīs Mansfield revisited and I liked it as well. I think itīs the best one of the sequels Iīve read so far and that because of I think two reasons. 1. She doesnīt try to copy Jane Austenīs way of writing. 2. The main figure is not Fanny from Mansfield Park, but (just like Haley says) her sister Susan which you donīt know so much about from JA`s book. I think that is the biggest mistake with a lot of the other sequels.
]They are about people you already "know" and love so you just run mad over all the mistakes.
Exactly! Stop ruining a good thing!
I just remembered how Mary Crawford resurfaced in Mansfield Revisited I didn't care very much for that aspect of the story(although I cried at her sad end :,( )...your thoughts?
