I deeply loved this book... How could I not?? Jane Austen is a master mind when it comes to weaving a plot and incorporating believable characters... This was a great book and I give it full marks for everything... I just wish I had read it all in a shorter period of time... But all in all I LOVED it... I recommend it to all Jane Austen fans..
(this is not really a plot summary, but I liked it... so I thought I would put it here instead.)
Before she began the novel, Austen wrote, "I am going to take a heroine whom no-one but myself will much like." In the very first sentence she introduces the title character as "Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich." Emma, however, is also rather spoiled; she greatly overestimates her own matchmaking abilities; and she is blind to the dangers of meddling in other people's lives and is often mistaken about the meanings of others' actions.
