My review:

I really enjoyed it. I don't think it's my favorite though. Pride and Prejudice is still my number 1. Emma is second. And not just because of the movie with Keira Knightly and Clueless. I feel like in those stories the couples that end up together had more interactions. Elizabeth and Darcy are so involved in many scenarios and Mr. Knightly is always going to Emma's house.

Spoiler:


Greta Scacchi did great voice work for the range of characters. There were some odd pauses, that were there not because it was a new scene. Sometimes it was the same scene but the pause was a couple of seconds. I listened on 1x because it's not modern English.

A great novel if not my favorite Austen one.

4 out of 5 poems

I didn't read what is behind the spoiler cut yet but 4 out of 5 is still good.

Some early observations:

Only one "scheme" so far.

This stood out: Sir Walter, on being applied to, without actually withholding his consent, or saying it should never be, gave it all the negative of great astonishment, great coldness, great silence, and a professed resolution of doing nothing for his daughter. He thought it a very degrading alliance; and Lady Russell - received it as a most unfortunate one.

Not a good support system in Annes family.

Her sisters are the worst. They're like Cinderella's stepsisters.

Not at all.

She's a saint for being as good as she is with them always being so judge-y and putting her down.

It's her style of writing. In P & P, the two older sisters were sensible, and the other 3 were quite different.

Poor Mary. She wasn't so bad, was she?

Better to be awkward than silly, I think.

The younger ones were goofy. I don't see that in Anne's family, but the girls in
the big house are along those lines.

Everyone sure panics over a fall.
Take action; do something.
