Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Emma Woodhouse is one of Austen's most captivating and vivid characters. Beautiful, spoiled, vain, and irrepressibly witty, Emma organizes the lives of the inhabitants of her sleepy little village, but her attempts at matchmaking lead to misunderstandings and potential heartbreak. Only her friend and neighbor Mr. Knightley dares to point out the mistakes she is making and encourages her to change her ways. Considered by many to be the best English novel, Emma is at once a charming love story, a detective story, and a comic and lively portrait of English life two hundred years ago. Emma is now a major BBC television series starring Romola Garai, Jonny Lee Miller, and Michael Gambon. Jenny Agutter reads Jane Austens classic novel, complete and unabridged.
