Jane Austen By JaneAusten Completed

Emma Woodhouse, aged 20 at the start of the novel, is a young, beautiful, witty, and privileged woman in Regency England. She lives on the fictional estate of Hartfield in Surrey in the village of Highbury with her elderly widowed father, a hypochondriac who is excessively concerned for the health and safety of his loved ones. Emma's friend and only critic is the gentlemanly George Knightley, her neighbour from the adjacent estate of Donwell, and the brother of her elder sister Isabella's husband, John. As the novel opens, Emma has just attended the wedding of Miss Taylor, her best friend and former governess. Having introduced Miss Taylor to her future husband, Mr. Weston, Emma takes credit for their marriage, and decides that she rather likes matchmaking.

Wow! Just wow! I thought that the movie was good. Seriously, check out 'Emma' on Netflix, it's great. A bit predictable, but that's okay. It's sort of like a classy, British Hallmark movie (if you know what that is). Love Jane Austen so much. This book is beyond beautiful 💖💖💖

It's similar to what happens in this centry when a best friend gets a boyfriend/girlfriend and spends less time with you. . .or spends no time at all. . .

well, the language is petty hard to understand for a non-native speaker like me

I am surprised that people have a hard time reading this, English is my third language and I understand it easily... I tried to read other "old classics" like Romeo and Juliet and I found that much more difficult
Mr. Woodhouse reminds me of Piglet, worrying about everything so sweetly.
