Blackbirds 2022 - Emma



Over dit product

Niveau: B2

With its imperfect but charming heroine and its witty exploration of relationships, Emma is often seen as Jane Austen’s most flawless work. Beautiful, clever, rich and single Emma Woodhouse is content with her life and sees no need for love or marriage. However, she enjoys interfering in the romantic lives of others. But when she ignores the warnings of Mr. Knightley and tries to arrange a match for Harriet Smith, her plans unravel and have consequences that she never expected.


The plot was amusing and engaging and I genuinely found it a real page-turner. Despite the fact that Austen narrates their drama with a slight tone of sarcasm I still felt like I connected with the characters and actually cared what happened to them. I even liked Miss Bates, the annoying aunt of Jane Fairfax who had sunk from prosperity into unfortunate circumstances. The romance aspect to it was one of the reasons that I loved it so much; I really wanted the characters to figure out who was engaged to who because as the reader I already knew. It was exciting and fun and made Emma overall light-hearted and a joy to read from beginning to end. Bron: Emma by Jane Austen – review | Children's books | The Guardian
