    "Find A Different Narrator"

    This isn't a review of Emma so much as it is cautionary: Michael Page is a brilliant narrator, but really. Jane Austen should have a woman delivering the dialogue. He simply can't do the assortment of women characters, and even Emma comes of sounding whiny and more manipulative than her character actually is.
    I simply couldn't finish it and have since purchased a different version.

    "The worst reader"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different reader would have made this book better. I listened to it while driving and was lucky not to have an accident from falling asleep from such a boring reader.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Page’s performances?

    Never


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom

    "Fast-Paced Narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Jane Austen paints with words, but there is not much action. The narration added a pace to this classic that made it delightful to listen to
