Emma is a literary classic by Jane Austen following the genteel women of Georgian-Regency England in their most cherished sport: matchmaking. Emma is spoiled, headstrong, and self-satisfied. After a couple she has introduced gets married, she greatly overestimates her own matchmaking abilities and, blind to the dangers of meddling in other people's lives, proceeds to forge ahead in her new interest despite objections. What follows is a comedy of manners, in which Emma repeatedly counsels her friends for or against their marriage prospects, absent any notice of their true emotions or desires. This story is often cited as a personal favorite of critics and literary historians, and Emma is set apart from other Austen heroines by her seeming immunity to romantic attraction.

I can't finish it! A little boring and long winded. I read somewhere that "Austen's goals in writing is to teach us to view the rude and ridiculous with amusement rather than disdain." And I agree.

Took a little time to get use to the different voices for the different characters that the narrator used, would have preferred it without, but overall the experience was enjoyable.
