    " I read Jane Austen's entire collection during the summer of 2003 - except for Emma, for some reason. I couldn't get through the book, even though I loved the movie. I decided to try it again - and I have no idea what the problem was the first time around. Absolutely loved it, and i can see why people call it Austen's best. Complex story and characters that you can both love and hate. A sweet story that moves quickly. Really great book. "

    " 4.5 Stars Jane will always be in a league of her own! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lolita | 1/26/2014

    " Jane Austen has been a beloved author for years. I love the picturesque settings and the quaint old-fashioned customs, yet having said that it still remains timeless. Jane Austen is an observer of people and she has a keen eye in observing and bringing to life peoples good qualities and follies. Ms. Austen has a wicked sense of humour which is at its funniest in Emma, a heroine, the author admits, nobody will like but herself. Picnics and dances are certainly to be found in the pages of this book, but there is sometimes a hint of the dangerous beneath the beautiful facade, for example the gypsy scene in this book, which has the ability to unnerve its readers after pages or tranquility. It doesn't hurt that every leading man in her novels is dashing and swoon worthy. :D "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debra | 1/25/2014

    " The love story of Emma, who shall never marry, and all those she tries to arrange marriages for, since she is so sensible. Her plans go awry, and no one she arranges ends up as planned, especially herself! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ralitsa Koleva | 1/21/2014

    " I expected a lot more. This one was kind a boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracey Knorn | 12/26/2013

    " never loved emma as much as the others but still not bad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chelsea | 12/23/2013

    " While I enjoyed this book I didn't love it nearly as much as Pride and Prejudice. I also felt like in the middle the book dragged a bit and there were some superfluous events that could have been left out. Otherwise a great Jane Austen book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanya Lolonis | 12/22/2013

    " Austen's favorite heroine, one which took me a couple of reads to warm up to. Yet I can tell why Austen loved her so. Lovely gem of a book, a reverent study at the movement from self-delusion to self-awareness. Warm and true. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Victoria Rodriguez | 12/21/2013

    " Film adaptations are barely intriguing so the novel was barely sufferable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katelyn Rood | 12/13/2013

    " A great Austen - I may even like Emma better than Elizabeth Bennett. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jadebooksit | 12/7/2013

    " Anything by Jane Austen is 5stars! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret Peavey | 11/17/2013

    " 3 1/2 stars. If you wanna try reading Jane Austen then I would highly recommend Pride and Prejudice before Emma. Although it was much better than Persuasion but not close to being as good as P and P. it dragged a little for me. However I do love Austen's style, so entertaining and very fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jani | 10/23/2013

    " The time line for this book is a period when women's objective was to find a husband. I did enjoy it. Emma saw herself as a strong person that was willing to sacrifice her own happiness for her family. It was an easy to read book, no confusing plots. All in all, predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 7/29/2013

    " People will probably want to slap me for this, but the reason I'm not giving it five out of five is that some sentences take up nearly half a page with their length rendering some parts a little bit tedious to me. But otherwise it is a novel of wit and charm that is overall an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paulette | 6/19/2013

    " Emma...a character to love and hate, but the book was as good as I remember reading in high school! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashleigh | 6/8/2013

    " Emma is my favorite Austen heroine. A strong woman who loves her daddy. A sweet friend who becomes so much more. Perfect balance of conflict and romance. So much like real life, for me anyway. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Oomingmak | 3/23/2013

    " She makes me laugh out loud. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kezz | 12/15/2012

    " I'm a very gothic, dickens/stoker/bronte girl and i love a great crime or trueful story about unfortunate people but Austen, when im down is always refreshing, this is just lovely and i've got a strange love for mr churchill.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steelwhisper | 11/15/2012

    " Re-read these days and am still just loving this! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex Witkowski | 11/8/2012

    " Admittedly I lost steam towards the end--it's a very long book--but the subtle humor and remarkably endearing characters kept me in it and enjoying it. Austen's style is dense but lovely. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lgordo | 9/9/2012

    " There's something creepy about "molding" a girl into your ideal woman and then marrying her, especially when she's young enough to be your daughter. There's also something preachy about it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Milo | 8/6/2012

    " Emma Woodhouse is an excellent character and the novel is, of course, very well-observed; I only wish I'd formed a similar attachment to any of the other characters, aside from maybe Mr Woodhouse, who was a bit one-note but rather funny, and Frank Churchill. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richa Sharma | 12/25/2011

    " Thoroughly enjoyed it..One of my favorites... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hilary Stephens | 12/22/2011

    " I named my first daughter after the title of this book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Noe | 10/2/2011

    " I like all Jane Austen books and re-read them often. I'm currently reading this one again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaitlin Bevis | 6/28/2011

    " I actually really liked Emma. I thought the story was very sweet. Sure there was a good bit of classism, but if you ignore all that the story line was pretty good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cecilia | 6/15/2011

    " Emma is such a frustrating character but she grows on you after a point. "

  • 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"! "
