Publisher Description

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.

Slow Burner But Worth It

Emma is truly an amazing character. Her depth, insecurities, dialogue, and innermost feelings made her relatable. Readers see how her dynamics as a character shift and develop throughout the story. She’s growing and we’re growing with her. This book, I first thought was predictable, but it took multiple turns towards the end that made it worth the read. Jane Austen never lets me down.

Awesome

Love this book I never can get enough of it, I bought all seven novels and this one is my favorite. Love Emma she is so spoiled but good nature, also love her dad such a character, in general all the characters are well illustrated as the reader can identify with them, and feel for them. Excellent writing and narration. I won't ever get tire of reading it! A must read book.
