Emma is a novel about youthful hubris and the perils of misconstrued romance....As in her other novels, Austen explores the concerns and difficulties of genteel women living in Georgian-Regency England; she also creates a lively comedy of manners among her characters. Before she began the novel, Austen wrote, "I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like." In the very first sentence she introduces the title character as "Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich." Emma, however, is also rather spoiled, headstrong, and self-satisfied; she greatly overestimates her own matchmaking abilities; she is blind to the dangers of meddling in other people's lives, and her imagination and perceptions often lead her astray.
I like the book so far, but I don’t understand everyone’s quarrel with the reader... she isn’t perfect, but I find her reading soothing and calm.
I can't with this reader. I tried. It's so flat and boring. Unfortunate for a great book.
Very hard to follow, reader sounds robotic, no emotion, lost interest after first chapter. Rather watch the movie.
Terrible reader. Didn't make it halfway. Please get a reader with expression.
I have a slight obsession with Jane Austen, so this review may be a bit biased. Take it as you will. Emma is a wonderful story and I love it. The reader is great and easily understood. Some Librivox readers are irritating and sound like robots or are boring. But this reader did really well with Emma.
Even the robot is better than the reader.
I loved this book, and it I have realized that I love audio books better than books! Really good job!
A real pageturner,simply a classic
reader sounds robotic, very hard to follow and stay interested in listening.
I'm vey sorry to have to write this review, but this is a terrible narration of this book! The reader's singsong voice is extremely distracting! I know this book inside out and it was even hard for me to listen to it ! Please consider another reader! :-/
