I was up until 4 a.m. this morning finishing Jane Austen's, Emma. I loved it! This was the first book I've read by this author and I wasn't disappointed.
Emma sets out to match making and fails miserably. Although her heart is in the right place, she sees what she wants to see and is able to fit it all neatly into her schemes. The characters in her circle are delightful, snobbish, annoying, eccentric and endearing. Not unlike the people we find in our own circles today! In all her scheming and rationalizations, she learns some things about herself and finally realizes she is in love with the man who tells her like it is.
This book was truly a good read and I'm now officially a Jane Austen fan!
