Introducing March’s Book Club Selection: Emma

emmaEmma by Jane Austen

What’s It About?

(Description from Goodreads)

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.

Why Was This Title Selected

I wanted one classic for the year, and I’m curious to see how this one compares with Pride and Prejudice.

Anything Else to Know About It?

The discussion will begin soon in the Facebook group, and you’re welcome to come and join us.

It’s available in Print, for Kindle or Nook, or via Audible. And you can get the Audible version for a reduced price if you buy the Kindle version first. You can also listen for free from Librivox.
