Emma Jane Austen Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

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.

    I was expecting to really like it, but i found myself extremely bored whenever I started reading. It is a very long and slow read and has taken me a long time to finish. If you want a educational book to expand your vocabulary this is good but it is a little boring.

    I was a bit apprehensive about reading this book as it’s not really my usual cup of tea, but after reading it I can safely say that it lives up to the hype.
  • Lovely fun

    My first Jane Austin book and it was a lovely fun read. Who knew that they were up to the same coupling shenanigans with gossip and matchmaking 200 years ago? No Match.com or Twitter antics, but the same motives using conversations over tea and with horse and carriage. I now can’t wait to watch the newly released movie and then go back and watch “Clueless” which was loosely based on Emma.

    I love this book. Emma is human in a way no other Austen protagonist is. I read this in fourth or fifth grade for the first time, and could really relate. It forced me to consider my own actions( was it really harmless fun?) And before I bore you, it wasn’t just that. It’s the original romcom! Not going to lie, I loved watching everything spiral, in a petty sort of way.
  • Great

    As an 8th grader taking Freshman English I was given this book as an assignment and found it hard to read. But overall it was very enticing and fun.
