Product Description

Product Description

Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition, seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her. (...) The real evils, indeed, of Emma's situation were the power of having rather too much her own way, and a disposition to think a little too well of herself; these were the disadvantages which threatened alloy to her many enjoyments.The danger, however, was at present so unperceived, that they did not by any means rank as misfortunes with her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always Enjoyable 21 Jun 2013
By M. Dowden HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE

Sometimes you just need to put your feet up and relax with an engaging book, that will draw you in, not overtax you, and is enjoyable. For me 'Emma' has always been one of those books, and one of which I have never tired of. Emma Woodhouse lives on an estate with her father, her mother is dead, and her eldest sister is already married and has children. For Emma, spoilt since a child and always seeming to get her way, has more than enough time on her hands, she doesn't have to worry about marrying or money.

Deciding that she is a matchmaker is obviously one of Emma's worse ideas, as you find out in reading this book of comical misadventures. With Emma in some ways acting like a bull in a china shop, and messing up things, as well as not seeing the patently obvious is a character that people have become to love, despite Jane Austen thinking she would be someone that only the author could like.

Two years ago a small American website asked its contributors to choose their favourite Austen novel, and this one won. There isn't really any wonder why as this is just a charm to read. Taking in life in a small Surrey village and some of the occupants this gives the place life, and is something we can all relate to. If you are at work for instance you see what happens, with people gossiping, trying to decide who fancies who, and who is going out with who. And I think we all know someone who tries to matchmake.

All in all a charming and engaging book to read, that most definitely has stood the test of time. The characters are all different, with some very funny ones, such as Miss Bates, and Mr Woodhouse. This is definitely a book you can lose yourself in time and time again.

Words are not needed to give a review for something so wonderful as a story written by Jane Austen! The title and the name of the author says it all!

5.0 out of 5 stars book worth revisiting 28 Mar 2014
By hextol

I did this for A-level many years ago and enjoyed it then but despite thinking that I had studied it to within an inch of its life(I went on to do an English degree) found so much more to enjoy this time round. I had forgotten, or even not fully realised at the time of first reading, how very funny it is, Made me laugh out loud several times which is relatively uncommon for me, It is interesting what the accumulation of life experiences can add to the understanding and appreciation of a text where meaning and allusion may have been not fully appreciated before because of not having 'been round the block' enough

5.0 out of 5 stars Emma is perfect 1 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
As the book says 'Emma is perfect'! Before reading this time, 'Emma' was my least favourite Jane Austen novel. It is climbed above 'Northanger Abbey' for certain. Really good to read it on my kindle when travelling.
