Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The official TV tie-in edition to the new four-part BBC1 adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma.

Emma is wealthy, beautiful, accomplished and a self-proclaimed matchmaker. When Emma meets Harriet Smith, a young girl of unknown parentage, Emma is convinced she can find Harriet a suitable husband. But, in her quest to find Harriet the perfect match, Emma jeopardizes Harriet's happiness and, much to her surprise, her own happiness too.

The much-loved Austen novel has been given a fresh look by award-winning writer Sandy Welch. With well-known actors taking the title roles — Romola Garai and Jonny Lee Miller are Emma and Mr Knightley — this promises to be a very special and enduring adaptation.

Synopsis:

Emma is young, rich, and independent. She has decided to never marry and instead spends her time organizing her acquaintances love affairs. Her plans for the matrimonial success of her new friend Harriet, however, lead her into complications that ultimately test her own detachment from the world of romance.

About the Author

JANE AUSTEN was born in 1775, the seventh of eight children. She enjoyed a happy and close-family life in Steventon, where her father was a rector. Her first novel, Sense and Sensibility, was published in 1811, followed by Pride and Prejudice in 1813. Emma was Jane's fourth novel, published in 1815. Jane died at the age of 41 in 1817 having completed six much-loved novels, as well as writing poems, short stories and three unfinished novels. All six published novels have been turned into a number of TV and big screen adaptations, a testament to her enduring popularity nearly 200 years after her death.

First off, I'm glad that I read this classic work of fiction. It was well written, but where it tripped me up was it was almost entirely dialogue. I was a bit worn out by the constant talking! I have no idea what Emma or Mr. Knightly look like, no idea what their homes, village, friends, etc. sound/feel/smell/look like. There was no description! Just people talking and, sparingly, what Emma was thinking. Emma was a very unique reading experience for me.
