    Excellent in Every Way

    Some people don't much like the main character in "Emma". I disagree, because Emma Woodhouse, although she initially has an inflated view of her own intelligence and position in the world, really learns something during the course of the novel. Handled with humor and understanding, the story brings self-knowledge and a measure of humility to Emma. She is one of Austen's most well-rounded characters.
    Other characters in Emma are among Austen's very best. And they are presented with enthusiasm and distinction by Juliet Stevenson.
    Although there are less expensive versions than this one, Stevenson is truly worth the extra. If you have credits, then it's a bargain at just one. Jenny Agutter is also a very good reader. Just make sure you go for an unabridged recording! Jane Austen's main appeal is in her wonderful use of language -- don't miss any of it!

    Even Emma would approve this marriage

    To me the most important review for any Jane Austen novel is the reader. Most likely you are familiar with the author. Emma is however, one of Austen's lesser known novels so I'll simply say, if you enjoyed "Sense and Sensibility" or "Pride and Prejudice", you will enjoy Emma.

    I was surprised to see how many audible versions of Emma are available. How to choose? Happily, I spent a bit more and went with this version. Even Emma would approve this marriage of Jane Austen's writing and Juliet Stevenson's narration.

    If you love the beauty of the English language used to it's best advantage (as Jane would say) you don't get better than Jane Austen (Shakespeare is a given) but any reader can do the exquisite writing justice. Juliet Stevenson is such a reader. Her tone reminds me of the great Julie Andrews. Soothing, expressive, imparting emotion with every passage, inhabiting the various characters with subtle differences that make each one distinct. Jane Austen and Emma would both be proud of their story as told by Juliet Stevenson.

    Wonderful listen

    Juliet Stevenson, by far, does the most delightful narration for Jane Austen novels.Her voice is strong and clear and she creates memorable characters with pitch and accent so that you always know who's speaking. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment.

    My new favorite book

    Excellently narrated. Each character is given a distinctive voice. I was enraptured. Loved it! Highly recommend this version on audible.

    Why can't all literature be like this?

    The narration was great but above all else the story was simply as I expect it to be. It is so hard to find really good literature in modern times and that is why we have the classics... Authors like Jane Austen are constantly my 'fall back' plan really when I am looked to be immersed in a story with actual characters, characters that are so imperfect and yet so absolutely perfect in the roles they play.

    Most persons already know the story of Emma, there are enough movies about the book in modern time for many persons to at least have some idea of the story. The novel was rightly named Emma and is easily one of my favorite female characters and, at the time the novel was written, was decades ahead of her time. The dynamics and description of details between the very relationships between the characters in the book by Jane Austen is what sets this novel apart I believe. Truly, just plain majestically written.

    The narrator was good, she did a credible enough job to carry the book off. I will admit that she could have done more, but in all honesty the content itself more than overcompensates for the less than stellar narration.

    All in all.... Stellar book... Beautiful title...

    This made me remember how much I love Austen

    I red this book ages ago and haven't picked up another Austen since and this just makes me want to go through all other Austen novels.

    The perfect delivery of one of Austen's best

    Juliet Stevenson does an amazing job of presenting Emma: each character is distinct, and the infamous "Mrs. E." and the sweetly overwhelming Miss Bates are topnotch. I've read, seen, and listened to this work probably 6 times, and Stevenson's version does a fantastic job of highlighting the wit, insight, and satire of Austen's novel. Highly, highly, highly recommended on all fronts.

    Jane Austen Classic

    The ambitions of each character was easily determined as Jane Austen's work quickly got underway. With all the matchmaking that took place in the times, Emma's social meddling gets her into a predicament with her friend Harriet, who Emma tries to set up with a man whose ego will not allow such a match to be made. Such a social hierarchy was a staple of the times and Austen illustrates both its purpose and its ridiculousness at the start. Due to Emma's fear of ruining her friendship with Harriet, she avoids her friend's company as best as she can, until the examination of her own romantic life requires a meeting.

    From the beginning of their encounters, it is clear that Emma and Mr Knightley would make a great couple, as he is the only one who can put up with her sarcasm and dish his own out as well. But her lack of interest in a partner (or perhaps her own ego) keeps their romance from reaching the levels the reader knows it could - at least, at the beginning. Once Emma decides to quit meddling in other people's affairs, she begins to examine her own life and her desires of a relationship, something she's slipped to the side until now. Finally, she begins to wonder what she wants in a man and comes to identify her wishes in the end.

    Juliet Stevenson's performance of each character is terrific, especially when it comes to those of Miss Bates and Mrs Elton. Just as the sentence structure displays, Miss Bates rambles on to no end, rather annoyingly at times, and the narrator's performance of such a characteristic feature is flawless, as is the pronunciation and clarity of every line in the book. Well done Juliet Stevenson!

    Uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert

    Ich fand es einfach überragend. Es macht viel Spaß, Juliet Stevenson zuzuhören. Sie beherrscht die Kunst, mit ihrer Stimme nicht nur verschiedene Personen, sondern auch deren Stimmungen und Befindlichkeiten zu charakterisieren. Emma ist nicht mein Lieblingswerk von Jane Austen, aber so gelesen habe ich es mit Genuss zu Ende gehört. Der Vorteil bei einem Sprecher ist, dass man auch als mittelmäßig Englisch sprechender und im Hören nicht so geübter Mitteleuropäer praktisch alles gut verstehen kann. Meine anglophone Tochter (15 Jahre) kommt damit jedenfalls auch gut zurecht.

    Delightful

    Juliet Stevenson is a genius and makes each character come to life in their own right as well as transporting the quiet wit of the author‘s voice. A masterpiece by Jane Austen paired with a master actress.

    Patriarchat mit Spaß

    Lustig und verwickelt suchen Leute in verschiedenen Schichten ihr Glück in der Ehe. Ein Mann ist Großgrundbesitzer und lebt von Pacht und eigener Produktion. Einer hat studiert und eine gute Stellung in Aussicht. Der dritte Mann ist Pächter des ersten. Der vierte ist der schöne, junge Pfarrer. Die eine Frau hat einen vermögenden Vater und eine gesicherte Zukunft. Die zweite Frau ist Waise, Soldatentochter, aber gebildet. Stellenangebote als Gouvernante lehnt sie ab, da sie heimlich verlobt ist. Der Vater der dritten Frau ist unbekannt. Sie ist zu Beginn der Erzählung siebzehn Jahre alt und hilft in der Dorfschule. Die vierte stammt aus einer reichen Großgrundbesitzerfamilie. Zuneigung, Emmas Vorstellungen und Gerüchte im Dorf lassen dieses oder jenes Paar möglich scheinen. Doch sie heiraten gemäß der Startnummern und immer sind alle im Dorf überrascht. Ansonsten kommen einige Patchwork-Haushalte, Sinti und Roma und Bemerkungen über die Luftqualität in Stadt und Land vor. Alle gehen viel zu Fuß, Männer reiten bis nach London und zurück.
