Arrogant, self-willed, and egotistical, Emma is Jane Austen's most unusual heroine. Her interfering ways and inveterate matchmaking are at once shocking and comic. She is "handsome, clever, and rich" and has "a disposition to think too well of herself." When she decides to introduce the humble Harriet Smith to the delights of genteel society and to find her a suitable husband, she precipitates herself and her immediate circle into a web of misunderstanding and intrigue, from which no one emerges unchanged.

I love Jane Austen's novels and whichever one I'm reading or have just finished reading tends to be my favorite at that time. So it is with Emma. Emma Woodhouse is probably the most badly behaved of Austen's heroines, and yet she is still very lovable. And then, there are those characters you love to hate, like Augusta Elton. Listening to a reading of Emma is a lovely way to pass a slow afternoon!
