Emma by Jane Austen.
Barnes & Nobles Classics series
In an effort to read all the free Barnes & Nobles Classics series books I got for my Nook ages ago, I joined a group on Goodreads devoted to reading the classics. This is one of their picks for April. Yes, I know, it is still March, but I like to get things out of my way, and so I did.
This is my first time reading Jane Austen. It was OK. Not good, not bad, just OK. It was just a little too high brow, too upper class, too slow, but not enough to totally kill it for me. I was engaged just enough to finish it.
There were times I wanted to scream: Come out with it already. I understand this is part of the “stiff upper lip” upper class British culture, but still. Speak straight and to the point. Stop beating around the bush.
I guess I don’t have much to say about the book. Other than, don’t play the role of a matchmaker.
