      In this book, Emma Woodhouse learns first hand the pitfalls of meddling in her friends’ life, as well as the need to not jump to conclusions. While I enjoy this book, I did prefer

      several of Jane Austen’s other books to it, because I found that several of the characters were just plain annoying.

      I kept waiting for Mrs.

      Elton to get some sort of come-uppance, which never really happened, unless you consider that Emma, as the mistress of two large houses, was much better off than her, who had a small house.

      Several of the characters were quite good, though.

      Fairfax’ aunt, Miss Bates, was hilarious in her running commentary, and Mr.

      Woodhouse is quite consistently a worrier.

      Emma is commendably dutiful while still fun, and overall the characters are well written.

      The plot

      is the usual, with less of the urgency to get married that I feel in Austen’s other books, and more of a sense of the consequences of meedling in other people’s lives, as well as the need to be non-judgemental.
