Beautiful, clever, rich – and single – Emma Woodhouse is perfectly content with her life and sees no need for either love or marriage. Nothing, however, delights her more than interfering in the romantic lives of others. But when she ignores the warnings of her good friend Mr Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for her protegee Harriet Smith, her carefully laid plans soon unravel and have consequences that she never expected.
I just didn’t get the point. I kept reading and wondering, ‘why?’ I mean, first her father was just annoying — especially, because I know someone exactly like that who I constantly just want to smack. Second, Emma really just needs something constructive to do. I kept wanting to tell her to go clean something or have some kids — no nannies — to keep you busy. She was so naive and clueless. UGH!
Anyway, It took all that I had – and six months – but I finished. It’s definitely a book I won’t be picking up again. Actually, I can honestly say that, it’s colored my tastes for classics.
