‘Jane Austen’s Emma is her masterpiece, mixing the sparkle of her early books with a deep sensibility’ Robert McCrum, Observer

Emma is young, rich and independent. She has decided not to get married and instead spends her time organising her acquaintances’ love affairs. Her plans for the matrimonial success of her new friend Harriet, however, lead her into complications that ultimately test her own detachment from the world of romance.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love Emma. This was a reread for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it the second time around. I’d recommend it to anyone.

The writing style, tone, characters, setting, and premise were all as intriguing as I remembered. I did forget about the ramble, but I appreciated the details that were told with a bit of genius with humor and sass that really helped to develop the theme and dilemmas the characters faced in the story.


“I may have lost my heart, but not my self-control.”
– Jane Austin

“There are people, who the more you do for them, the less they will do for themselves.”
― Jane Austen
