Overview

• The book is an edited and illustrated version of the original one and includes 18 or more unique illustrations which are relevant to its content.
• Emma is the novel by Jane Austen which combines irony, wit, realism, vivid characterization, moral seriousness, and faultless control of tone and narrative method. Emma Woodhouse, clever and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition, thinks a little too highly of herself, and entertains herself by meddling in the affairs of others. She is blind to her own feelings and dangerously insensitive to the feeling of others. The results are not always to her liking. Though, outwardly the story line of Emma appears to be dealing with the subject of young ladies finding suitable husbands, a close reading of the novel would show that it is much more than that.

Slow at first but in the middle it gets good. Emma is such a funny character. And mr knightley is charming.

The text of this free book is decent-definitely better than a lot of other free nook books! A few missing words and random symbols for letters, but I could usually make it out. I'd read it before though. The book itself is excellent. The copy is alright

This book has a ton of romance but this edition is not good just on one page there are a ton of mistakes for instance it says sxteen instead of sixteen and another word I can't even tell what it is but I love Jane Austen

Another masterpiece by Harvard University Press!! If you love Jane Austen's works, you're going to LOVE this as well! The story is wonderful all in itself, but the addition of the notations & illustrations along the margins gives the reader more detail & understanding of the times when this was written. I have thoroughly enjoyed this book, as I knew I would - I also own the previous two annotated editions done by HPU in this format, Pride & Prejudice and Persuasion. Can't wait for the rest of them to done so that I can add them to my collection!!

The hard cover copy is the best way to read the book print is small but that is why the pocket edition is the best because it doesn't take much room

In this timeless piece by Jane Austen, Emma of Highbury, is the self-indulged daughter of Mr. Woodhouse. Her governess has just married and at 21, she is left to figure life out on her own. She falls into the trap of matchmaking and it becomes a Comedy of Errors, so to speak. She vows to never marry because she doesn’t want to leave her father unattended. However, others in her town begin to make unlikely mate selections and those around are caught off guard. When young Harriet, who is under her tutelage, professes her love for Emma’s mentor, Mr. Knightley, Emma’s heart almost gives out. She is surprised by her own emotions. Read this this classic work and see how things turn out. It will entertain for hours, days and even weeks!

The poor copies of this novel were those produced before 2010.  The rest appear OK.
