Emma Woodhouse is one of Austen's most captivating and vivid characters.
Beautiful, spoilt, vain and irrepressibly witty, Emma organises the lives of the inhabitants of her sleepy little village, but her attempts at matchmaking lead to misunderstandings and potential heartbreak.
Only her friend and neighbour Mr Knightley dares to point out the mistakes she is making and encourages her to change her ways.
Considered by many to be the best English novel, "Emma" is at once a charming love story, a detective story, and a comic and lively portrait of English life two hundred years ago. "Emma" is now a major BBC television series starring Romola Garai, Jonny Lee Miller and Michael Gambon.
Jenny Agutter reads Jane Austen's classic novel, complete and unabridged. 'Agutter has given the perfect voice to this light-hearted classic, delicately differentiating each character's personality.
A glorious way to experience the essential Austen' - "Audiofile".
