Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie Kayler | 2/19/2014

    " My all time favorite Jane Austen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Blor028 | 2/18/2014

    " I loved this book, it is one of my favorite of Austen. Emma is annoying, mean, clueless and a bitch. I love her because she is so real and so imperfect. The story is classic Jane Austen but the characters are interesting and endearing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kerry | 2/6/2014

    " The first half (at least) of the book seemed rather unnecessary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krista Joy | 2/6/2014

    " Like all Austen stories the characters are described in all their unique personalities so clearly I feel I know them. In Emma in particular I feel like I know the neighborhood so well I just want to visit them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trudy | 2/2/2014

    " This is not my favorite Austen for two reasons. I did not feel that any of the characters were painted as clearly as they were in her other novels. I found this particularly frustrating with the character Jane Fairfax who the reader never really gets to know. Emma has known her for many years but has never particularly liked her, but I did not get a sense from the novel as to why this was so. I believe it was said that Emma was jealous of her because so many other people admired her, yet this was not really shown in the novel. I also found it hard to like Emma. Her initial condemnation of Mrs Elton appears to be very judgemental. So, Mrs Elton is not perfect but Emma herself is an interfering, snobbish busybody. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Iris Schouten | 1/29/2014

    " Only Mr Knightley made this story bearable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam Morris | 1/17/2014

    " Love this book and all of Jane Austin's books! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheri Theis | 1/3/2014

    " Thought I would check this out because I loved Pride and Prejudice, and Emma is supposedly Austen's best work. It was really, really long and not as engrossing, but I finished the book. It ended just as I figured it would. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chuckr | 12/20/2013

    " Emma's a snobbish overly eager girl who naively thinks she's independent in a world where women couldn't be independent... and of course the end is typical for that time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Venise | 12/19/2013

    " I like how situations got sorted "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenna | 12/12/2013

    " Classic Jane Austen novel. I love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katey B. | 12/9/2013

    " This book was what I expected, long, but excellent. I found myself very much invested in the lives of the many characters. It was very well written, I understand why it is considered a classic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Candace Hinkle | 12/2/2013

    " I liked this almost as much as "Pride and Prejudice". The character Emma is gloriously flawed but you like her all the more in the end. You can't say that about many characters in literature. This is a must read for anyone who loves the classics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ally | 12/1/2013

    " As many of you probably know the movie "Clueless" was based on Emma, and the similarities and parallels are easy to draw. I really enjoyed this book and for the most part, the characters as well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rochelle | 10/31/2013

    " I had read this book before. I was kind of disappointed. It was so old fashioned and quite boring. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally Nava | 9/23/2013

    " Second favorite from Jane Austen. Absolute whimsy and again wish there were more of these men. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Felicity Schulz | 1/30/2013

    " I thought it wasn't as funny, or as well written as Pride & Prejudice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynne | 1/16/2013

    " Happy Ending. Socializing seems so formal and finding a husband at the right social level seemed too important. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally Whitt | 11/9/2012

    " I loved this book! It was a little hard for me to get into it and get used to the formal English language, but after I adjusted, I thought it was wonderful. I did not want it to end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Violinknitter | 9/28/2012

    " Still not my favorite Austen, but once I was through the first section of the book, I could put up with Emma much better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bookworm1 | 8/30/2012

    " i really like this book. ITS SO ROMANTIC!!!!!!!!!! I only gave it four stars because it's hard to understand but you gotta love Jane Austen "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Glidden | 11/15/2011

    " Awesome! Love Jane Austen books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meg B. | 10/24/2011

    " I just finished the memoir of a Navy Seal so this seemed like an interesting choice to follow that up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Birdie | 8/11/2011

    " A classic and one of my favorites to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie | 5/24/2011

    " I love Jane Austen. I feel happy when I am reading her books. I read this one when I was pregnant with my Emma. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bodagirl | 5/22/2011

    " Not my favorite Austen. There were a couple of time when I literally threw the book across the room because Emma is so unbelievably ... spoiled and clueless (pun intended). I also never understood how Mr. Knightley could love such a silly girl. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin | 5/22/2011

    " Reading this after seeing "Clueless" after so many times was an interesting experience. I enjoyed this book quite a bit, and I'd say that this book represents Austen at her best - vivid characters, complicated social structures. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 5/22/2011

    " Well, we named our daughter after Emma Woodhouse. My idea. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liza | 5/18/2011

    " Less drama than other Austen books, Emma isn't as striking as Pride and Prejudice, but the character of Emma is charming and amusing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ctb | 5/17/2011

    " Too tidy an ending, but otherwise highly entertaining and well-written with some dark drama (1840s style) thrown in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 5/17/2011

    " Emma lives in a safe little society in Highbury, where the boredom and confinement and the triviality of social life there would have driven me crazy! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ameliaaddison | 5/14/2011

    " Not my favorite. Found it slower, and Emma was more annoying than charming. I was surprised because I love the movie. Still have 2 more Jane Austens to read but it's going to be hard to compare with Pride and Prejudice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ross | 5/14/2011

    " Always my favorite Jane Austen novel, possibly because I read it first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shefali | 5/14/2011

    " depends on ppl's taste....but i recommend to read it..... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jacquelyn | 5/13/2011

    " Too hard to follow. I won't try a Jane Austen again. Not my cup of tea. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanna | 5/11/2011

    " "Emma" is such a fun book to read. I love that our heroine in this book is very flawed and human. It's a fun journey to watch the evolution of character in many of the characters. Of Jane Austen books, in my opinion, "Emma" is second only to "Pride and Prejudice"! "

About the Author
Author Jane Austen

Jane Austen (1775–1817) is considered by many scholars to be the first great woman novelist. Born in Steventon, England, she later moved to Bath and began to write for her own and her family’s amusement. Her novels, set in her own English countryside, depict the daily lives of provincial middle-class families with wry observation, a delicate irony, and a good-humored wit.
