From Library Journal:

At 21, Emma Woodhouse is a young woman with every possible advantage: good looks, intelligence, wealth, rank, the respect of her neighbors, and the love of family and friends. Indeed, in her father's eyes, Emma can do no wrong. But Emma is far from perfect, and when her matchmaking efforts go awry, she must learn the hard way just how little she understands the ways of the human heart. Jane Austen's delightful social comedy is given a sensitive interpretation by actress Jenny Agutter, who offers a well-paced, nuanced reading. Moreover, Agutter excels in her characterizations, especially in giving voice to voluble Miss Bates, self-important Mrs. Elton, and blunt Mr. Knightley. Such a fine reading of such a wonderful classic is recommended without reservation to all libraries.Sister M. Anna Falbo, Villa Maria Coll. Lib., Buffalo, N.Y.(c) Copyright 2010.
