Austen’s book

Recently I’ve been reading Jane Austen’s “Mansfield Park”. In Austen’s story most of the characters look stupid more or less, speak just about marriage and money, the comfort of life, even the clever characters’ lines seem to be very hackneyed. But I think, in our real modern life, people just talk about the similar things ... how to attract the interest of charming man or girl, how to get well-paid job, how to save money, shopping, nice house, the decoration of the rooms etc... though we have more knowledge about this wide world than the people of “Mansfield Park” story. Maybe we human being is all stupid as Austen has described :(
