Author: Jane Austen
As daughter of the richest, most important man in the small provincial village of Highbury, Emma Woodhouse is firmly convinced that it is her right--perhaps even her "duty"; to arrange the lives of others. Considered by most critics to be Austen's most technically brilliant achievement, "Emma" sparkles with ironic insights into self-deception, self-discovery, and the interplay of love and power.
It's absolutely a very wonderful read! I can't even put it down and stop reading it even though I'm not very good with with classic literature, literally. Emma really swept my heart away. So far, this is Jane Austen I love best.
Emma Woodhouse, witty, bright, and never want to loose in anything she does. She's also spoilt, always think very high of herself which sometime it blinds her to the opinions of other people. Funny though as she always managed to cause misunderstandings and she really takes some times to learn what she did wrong. Her ambition decides to devote her life in finding the right man for the people around her and think of her as a holy matchmaker. Funny thing is, the matchmaking are utterly wrong for each of the. Despite her interest in romance, Emma is clueless, doesn't really aware about her own feelings, and her relationship with gentle Mr. Knightly. However, her cause will come to contingency when she will find love in the face of a much sought after man.
Although it takes sometime for me to finish this, I think it's actually really fun and tells me one thing, don't be too hard to get ;p
