Summary

Arrogant, self-willed, and egotistical, Emma is Jane Austen's most unusual heroine. Her interfering ways and inveterate matchmaking are at once shocking and comic. She is "handsome, clever, and rich" and has "a disposition to think too well of herself." When she decides to introduce the humble Harriet Smith to the delights of genteel society and to find her a suitable husband, she precipitates herself and her immediate circle into a web of misunderstanding and intrigue, from which no one emerges unchanged.

The abridged version loses so much

You absolutely have to listen to the unabridged version of Emma to get the real feel of what is going on. So much is clipped out of this 3 hour abridged version that if I had not already had read the book I would not have really understood what was going on. Emma appears very one-dimensional in this shortened version. Juliet Stevenson does a great job with the narration though.
