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.
I was looking for a book to read before bed instead of watching TV-something interesting and lighthearted that I would still be able to put down when I got tired. I started this book and thought Emma was too much of a spoiled brat, but tried it again and every page was better than the last, down to the very end! I love all the characters and can’t wait to watch the movie now! I love Jane Austen’s sense of humor throughout this book and in Pride and Prejudice too (haven’t read any of her others yet).
