This is actually the only Austen novel I haven’t read! (I haven’t read her shorter stuff yet, either.) I’ve watched both the Billie Piper and Frances O’Connor movies and liked both, though, despite some issues. I liked Fanny in the movies and am sad that she’s apparently so hated. (And sideeyeing the fact that Austen’s least popular heroine is the one with the most terrible background.) Fanny’s rejection of Henry Crawford and his “why don’t you devote your life to redeeming me” filled me with delight in both versions. (Fix yourself dude!) I tried to find a youtube clip of that, but it’s all shipper vids because fandom. In general it seems to be a bit darker than most of Austen’s work, and definitely a departure for her other novels, but I can’t really make any deep analysis or comments since I haven’t read the book, or watched either movie in a few years.
