Publisher's Summary

Emma is a literary classic by Jane Austen following the genteel women of Georgian-Regency England in their most cherished sport: matchmaking. Emma is spoiled, headstrong, and self-satisfied. After a couple she has introduced gets married, she greatly overestimates her own matchmaking abilities and, blind to the dangers of meddling in other people's lives, proceeds to forge ahead in her new interest despite objections. What follows is a comedy of manners, in which Emma repeatedly counsels her friends for or against their marriage prospects, absent any notice of their true emotions or desires. This story is often cited as a personal favorite of critics and literary historians, and Emma is set apart from other Austen heroines by her seeming immunity to romantic attraction.

    "meh narration"

    the narrator reads too slowly and her characterization of mr. knightly in particular, is quite bad. I'm running of returning this Emma and trying a different narrator.

    "Good could be better"

    I love this classic piece by Jane Austen, but I'm not a fan of the narrator. Every character sounded conceited and condescending.

    "Amazing"

    Amazingly wordy yet beautifully executed writing. I just loved reading it and finished it in a few days.
