Classic Monday: Emma by Jane Austen

396 pages
Beautiful, clever, rich - and single - Emma Woodhouse is perfectly content with her life and sees no need for either love or marriage. Nothing, however, delights her more than interfering in the romantic lives of others. But when she ignores the warnings of her good friend Mr Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for her protegee Harriet Smith, her carefully laid plans soon unravel and have consequences that she never expected. With its imperfect but charming heroine and its witty and subtle exploration of relationships, Emma is often seen as Jane Austen's most flawless work.

This is a humorous and fun victorian novel. Emma is a meddler in relationships and is usually successful at matchmaking but she finds out she may have bit off more than she can handle in her latest attempt. This is a great classic novel which has an amusing look at relationships and matchmaking.
