Publisher's Summary

One of Jane Austen's most popular novels. Arrogant, self-willed, and egotistical, Emma is her most unusual heroine.

Wonderful listen

Juliet Stevenson, by far, does the most delightful narration for Jane Austen novels.Her voice is strong and clear and she creates memorable characters with pitch and accent so that you always know who's speaking. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment.

Excellent in Every Way

Some people don't much like the main character in "Emma". I disagree, because Emma Woodhouse, although she initially has an inflated view of her own intelligence and position in the world, really learns something during the course of the novel. Handled with humor and understanding, the story brings self-knowledge and a measure of humility to Emma. She is one of Austen's most well-rounded characters.
Other characters in Emma are among Austen's very best. And they are presented with enthusiasm and distinction by Juliet Stevenson.
Although there are less expensive versions than this one, Stevenson is truly worth the extra. If you have credits, then it's a bargain at just one. Jenny Agutter is also a very good reader. Just make sure you go for an unabridged recording! Jane Austen's main appeal is in her wonderful use of language -- don't miss any of it!

We do love Emma, Miss Austen!

Jane Austen decided to write a heroine that no one but herself would like. Maybe then but now Emma lives on as the most delightfully spirited, frequently needing a good shake but still most loveable of all Austen's heroines.
The novel is all wit and sparkle. Juliet Stevenson narrates it beautifully (wait for her Mrs Elton!).
I loved this buy from Audible and recommend it to all customers!

Lively and fresh

This is a really nice version of Jane Austen's Emma. Emma can be a little harder to like than some of Austen's other heroines. However, Juliet Stevenson's reading breaths life into this in a really positive way - not playing down any of the negative characteristics of Emma, but not making you think that Emma was too much of a dolt.

Fantastic rendition

Juliet Stevenson's eloquent delivery of Jane Austen's classic Emma is by far the best. Carefully read, she gives emotion and life to this timeless classic.

Enjoyable novel

I am a fan of Jane Austen and I enjoyed this novel. It was entertaining and kept my interest up but it is not her greatest work. Pride & Prejudice remains my favourite. I am glad I listened to it and the narration was well done.
