Emma by Jane Austen. 0.00
A novel about the comedies and perils of misconstrued romance. Before writing the novel, Ms. 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 is also: spoiled; greatly overestimates her own matchmaking abilities; blind to the dangers of meddling in other people's lives; and, often mistaken about the meanings of others' actions.
