Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever and rich, with comfortable home and happy disposition, seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her.

Emma is one of English fiction's most loved heroines. Her liveliness and quick wit, constant meddling and matchmaking between her acquaintances in the village of Highbury, and her own eventual falling in love are a delight.

Anna-Juliana Clare graduated from Bristol Old Vic School Theatre School 1988. Her career has ranged from West End musicals to television and radio appearances.

    " God, that was awful. Would have dropped it if it weren't for class. "

    " I like jane austen's novels a lot,first of all because i love happy endings, the second reason because they take me back in time where women spend the day in reading, talking and playing music,and the last one is about the characters of her novels, they are full of life and emotions. "

    " This book was very in depth. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Delilah | 12/29/2013

    " What an awful lot of irritating characters! Jane Austen really astounds me in that she can make such an illogical main character endearing. Emma is a meddlesome young lady living at Hartfield with her health-obsessed father when she meets Harriet Smith, a beautiful but shy orphan. She sets out trying to get Mr. Elton and Miss Smith to marry, but not everything goes as expected. Emma is a wonderfully well-developed character. She learns a lot about herself and others and by the end of the book, she's SO different from how she started. At first she was nosy, presumptuous, and unaware of herself and others;but as the story unfolds, she matures and grows. Honestly, my favorite character was Mr. Knightley. So blunt! So honest and clever! I enjoyed every moment in which he appeared. The plot is very slow-paced, especially at the beginning. What makes up for it is Austen's sense of humor and wit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti Powell95 | 12/15/2013

    " Classic great book. Timeless tale! Still one of my faves! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meg B. | 12/1/2013

    " 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 Krystal | 11/26/2013

    " I love this book so much. I think it is probably my favorite of all of Jane Austen's novels. So, so great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yasmine | 11/25/2013

    " I am a better matchmaker than Emma Woodhouse. I guessed them all! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margo | 10/30/2013

    " I mean it's Jane Austen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nusrat | 9/8/2013

    " As much pain as it had given me during my Alevel literature exam days, it will always be one of my most favorite books, ever . "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ali | 8/8/2013

    " I usually like Jane Austen. But the fact that I had to read this for school made me gag. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katey B. | 8/1/2013

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tweetybird | 1/19/2013

    " Classic. They don't make 'em like they used to! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jodi Arnold | 12/9/2012

    " one of the best literary endings "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheri | 10/23/2012

    " Found Emma a bit boring compared to other Jane Austen novels I have read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina Taylor | 9/18/2012

    " My all time favorite book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cary Simowitz | 1/30/2012

    " A bit predictable and dragging at times. Ranks above Mansfield Park but below Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice in my Jane Austen exploration. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron West | 1/14/2012

    " Every time I read this book it just gets better and better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shivani Gupta | 8/5/2011

    " The pace of the story is slow. Did not live up to my expectations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bec | 7/17/2011

    " Lovely to read an old classic!!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa J | 7/2/2011

    " This was such a great read. I owe all thanks to Austen for my odd affinity to Downton Abbey. "

  • 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"! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 5/10/2011

    " I loved this more every time I read it! "

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.
