Summary

Seen through the eyes of Emma Woodhouse, Jane Austen paints a charming, often ironic, picture of courtship and love. The novel is set in Highbury, a sizeable village in Surrey, where social life is dominated by the intelligent and wealthy Emma, who has too little to occupy herself and turns to matchmaking on behalf of her friends and neighbours to relieve boredom. Her schemes meet with varying degrees of success, until she finally learns to concentrate on her own life and leave others to live theirs without her interference.

Critic reviews

"As in all of Jane Austen's works, the simple theme of courtship belies the complexity of her vision of human nature and of our need for power. Technical brilliance? Yes. Moral brilliance? Most definitely." (Chris Kellett, 500 Great Books by Women: A Reader's Guide)

OK for a period story.

Good narration. it's short and of course well written but the story is not that gripping
