Jane Austen Æ Emma by Jane Austen Book

Ooking a true love of her ownThis edition is part of the Penguin Classics Clothbound series designed by Coralie Bickford Smi 35 stars rounded up because of the narrationI've noticed a lot of people hate Emma She's spoiled by her circumstances and self absorbed in a way that only someone who hasn't really known any sort of hardships can be And I get why she isn't the heroine that anyone is really rooting for in a serious way Because if the book had ended with Emma alone with her father it wouldn't have really broken my heart But here's the thing I found as I listened to this one It wasn't really Emma that I hated it was the whole stick to your social level thinking that was soacceptedI guess I forgot that society's structure was such an ingrained part of everyone's lives during this time period that the fact that Emma dared to think her friend worthy of a certain man made her into a villainess I think we tend to focus on Robert Martin who for all intents and purposes was a nice dude and Emma discouraging Harriet to accept him because she thought he was socially above him But in reality it wasn't just that Emma who needed to be chastised for sticking her nose into Harriet's love life Although yes she should have been because stop being a nosey bitch EmmaIt was the whole if you marry a farmer we can't be seen together any thingHow was this a thing? How was this ever a thing?Ok ok Take away my disappointment in the casual way humans treated other humans who hadn't been born into the right family and weren't gentlemanly enough Or the way Emma was SO GRATEFUL that Knightly had taken the time to correct her when she didn't behave properlyAnd take away the part where Knightly blushingly confessed that he had probably been in love with her since she was 13 with their 16 year age gap that puts him at 29OHMYFUCKINGGODI get it Timesthey were a bit differentI still made The Face when I heard that one thoughAnyway Take all of that away and I honestly liked this story Emma wasn't a bad person she was just somewhat Clueless as to what the real world was like and oblivious to not only what other people needed but to what she needed as well Speaking of what she needed she needed someone to grab her father by the shoulders give him a good shake and tell him to stop acting like such a pussy Mr Woodhouse was so fucking annoying I mean he's portrayed as a lovable harmless old man butnot really She almost didn't marry because of him And everyone just bowed and scraped and let him get away with his nonsense Except Knightly's brother loved that guy Probably the only normal person in the entire fucking bookIt was good luck that they had a chicken thief in the area that scared her father into wanting a man around the house Ha I really did think that was a cute way to end the storyAnd Knightly really was a super nice guy who deserved a happy ending of his ownMy point is that while it has its problems I wasn't bored to tears with this classic story And I like that Austen wrote about people and the things that made them tick and not the weather or the scenery The issues I had with the book are the same things that make the book a classic In other words it's old And they did shit differently when this was written Not really sure what you can do about that other than be super fucking happy you weren't born back then Nadia May was a wonderful narrator and really made listening to the audiobook a very pleasant experience And

Emma by Jane AustEmma Woodhouse believes herself to be an excellent matchmaker though she herself does not plan on marrying But as she meddle “I may have lost my heart but not my self control”Personally I may have lost my self control but not my heartMy motivation to read this book stemmed from JK Rowling stating that this was one of her favourite books A few years ago I read my first Jane Austen which was Pride and Prejudice and I really enjoyed itI thought Emma couldn't be that bad it's a popular classic and its rating is good To be honest it's not bad exactly but the fact that it took me one whole month to get through it says a lot I had lots and lots of problems with this novel1 Emma Such a vain and arrogant main character I mean I know she is supposed to be an unlikeable character for literary reasons But that doesn't make it any easier2 Miss Bates Why bother wasting so much ink and paper on nonsense Numerous pages of nonsense3 They way people are Wait Let me guess That character is wait for it pleasant? The nicest person in the world? Of such sweet disposition? So generous exceptional kind satisfactory and pleasant Please save me4 The way people talk Hours could go by and Emma and her father could talk about nothing but the pig they owned and had slaughtered and what they'll make of it for dinner and how nice it was that they gave some of it to the Bates and if it was the right part of the pig they gave away or if they should have given something else but no it is all fine and pleasant and that was very generous of them and they will surely be very gracious since they gave away such fine piece of pork and won't dinner be nice and kick me on the shin pleasant5 The plotScratch 300 pages of nonsense and nervewracking pleasantness and this could have been a book I enjoyedFind of my books on Instagram
