Emma, in my opinion, is one of the best books ever written. Though the writing style of the 1800's is difficult to read, the themes and thoughts of the novel are timeless. Emma deals with a 21 year-old girl, who loves to set her friends up with suitable men. This comes with much miscommunication and confusion, as well as hurt feelings and misunderstanding. In the end, like most Austen novels, everyone gets what they deserve. Emma is a great novel because it shows the ironic, and hilarious sense of finding love.

This has always been my second favorite Jane Austen book (after Pride and Prejudice). The story is about a young woman who makes it her calling to match her friends. After much error and stupidity, most everyone ends up happy. The book is brilliant, and I highly recommend it.

Jane Austen’s faultless story of meddling Emma Woodhouse has gotten a new annotated version. The annotation runs from very scholarly as regards her writing style to notes on what various movie adaptations have done to bring the story to film. There’s something for everyone in this hefty volume.
