Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Seth | 2/20/2014

    " Possibly Austen's best work. I love how Emma represents the development of a human being; going from a proud know-it-all to a humbled, mature woman who realizes she knows less of the world than she thought. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tessa | 2/16/2014

    " This one is close to a 5, I really liked it. And another thing is that the ending isn't as well known so you're not sure what's going to happen. It's not like Pride Prejudice where you know Elizabeth will end up with Mr. Darcy. Emma is an interesting girl who doesn't always make the smartest decisions but she tries to do things that will eventually help others. All in all it's a good and fun read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beaky | 2/11/2014

    " Re-read it for the second time, but this time via audio book table. Couldn't remember half the detail, and I always enjoy Austin. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eveline Evans | 2/10/2014

    " While the story itself was first rate, it was hard to get through. The style of writing was tedious and the paragraphs long. Not easy reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanya Lolonis | 2/10/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Itzam | 1/27/2014

    " Superficial... but interesting to read so... read it jejeje "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tami | 1/25/2014

    " LOVED IT!!!! Just waiting for my Mr. Knightley to come along..... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kami | 1/18/2014

    " I give up. Maybe I'm just not in a Jane Austen mood but I finally gave up on liking Emma or caring at all for her self absorption. This is not as clever as Pride and Prejudice nor are any of the love stories or characters all that interesting. I wish I liked it more (I did love Clueless!) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judie Mccourt | 1/16/2014

    " last read this for a level English - enjoyed it and appreciated the subtleties "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stormie Walston | 1/14/2014

    " A bit slow and trivial. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arika Harvey | 12/23/2013

    " A good read, but difficult to follow if you get caught up in the language. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tess Sullivan | 12/14/2013

    " My personal favorite of the Austin novels, a relatable character whose funny, attractive and sadly mistaken in matters of the human heart. Her ambitions to match others unfortunately makes her blind to her own desires. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Candace Hinkle | 12/13/2013

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Faith Ah | 12/10/2013

    " Although not my favorite Austen book, Emma is my favorite Austen character. She is meddlesome, spoiled, and witty. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane Lawson | 12/9/2013

    " I won't be running out to read another Jane Austen book any time soon. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liz | 12/8/2013

    " I couldn't get into it but I did finish it. emma is a girl who wants to set her friends up for marriage but insist she will never marry. she is incorrect in both dealings. "

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

    " 'If I loved you less, I might have been able to talk about it more.' Rest my case. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lis | 9/7/2013

    " I felt like I was reading a gossip magazine most of the time, but it was worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Selby | 7/29/2013

    " This was a dud. The most interesting pairing was Harriet and Robert Martin. But it is largely neglected. Instead, we get a lot of superfluous dialogue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pamela | 3/26/2013

    " very good read. Love the humor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristine | 11/29/2012

    " Emma got on my nerves a bit, but apparently she's supposed to. I liked the happy ending for everyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 6/20/2012

    " quick re-read for a book group. I continue to agree with Jane Austen who said she had created a "heroine whom no-one but myself will much like." Emma needed a swift kick. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesley | 1/15/2012

    " Good story worth a read if you like love stories with a little bit of a twist "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martha | 1/10/2012

    " Probably the Jane Austen book that I like the least but only because I didn't like the main character :p "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessie | 7/29/2011

    " Emma annoys me a bit so this isn't my favorite Austen book but I still really enjoyed it. I read it during university and then forgot I had read it so I read it again. hee hee. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nat Mansfield | 6/6/2011

    " I love Jane Austen but I just couldn't get to like the character Emma. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 5/30/2011

    " The book is very detailed and still very comical. However, at times I couldn't pay attention because of too much detail. I really LOVED the movie and thought I would love the book but I still love the movie more. "

  • 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"! "
