Descrição da editora
An Apple Books Classic edition.
Emma Woodhouse may just be Jane Austen’s most controversial character. Some see her as a spoiled narcissist who’s deluded about reality, while others view her as a well-intentioned and bitingly sarcastic young woman who matures before our eyes.
This well-loved novel-which is often adapted for the screen-is set in the early 19th century, among England’s landed gentry. After seeing her governess happily married, Emma decides she is a natural matchmaker and devises a plan to find her new friend Harriet a mate. What follows has all the makings of a contemporary soap opera. As usual, Austen portrays her contemporaries with a brilliant and subtle snark. Emma is a wonderfully entertaining read.

Such an enjoyable novel
I’ve already read Pride and Prejudice and didn’t like it, so I’ve thought that I wouldn’t like this one either. But I was wrong.
It is much fun to read even though it hasn’t much of a story and just focus on Emma’s daily life, a character that was so dislikable in the beginning but through the book manage to be likable enough. The other characters were all nice (even the Eltons) and guessing who would marry who was amusing. 8/10
if I could give it a thousand stars, I would.
