This is a Classic in paperbacks. I liked it alots. It is a fascinating description of one countryside community eventhough it does not happen very much in the story. I had read it in Finnish earlier but still liked to reread it in English.I will soon mail it to Italy as part of OBCZ -challenge.

Thank you for sending me this book!^__^
There is a group of people on the Italian forum, called something like Little Fans of the 19th century woman; I think I'll have to offer this book as bookring, or they're going to kill me! :P

Ce l'ho fatta.. con grande fatica ma ci sono arrivata in fondo...

grande fatica perché la storia non è molto avvincente, almeno all'inizio, e quindi la lettura è andata a rilento... l'inglese è antiquato e macchinoso, piuttosto difficile da seguire.
Però verso la fine, forse anche grazie a una mia disposizione più benevola e all'abitudine al linguaggio, le quotazioni della storia sono risalite fino alla sufficienza!
Al più presto ripartirà...

Me too had read this book translated and later re-read it in the original version. I think all Austen books need re-reading because at the first reading you are most concentrated in facts and only when you know them already you can concentrate on details... little details are what I like best in Austen's books: often some words that seem to have been put there casually tell a long tale!

I've read the book recently (birthday gift) so I will hand it to the next person in a few days. In the meanwhile I think I will re-read some passages...

This is the first time I read Emma in English, I loved Jane Austen's way of writing, her old style language, this time I could also appreciate her plays on words. As I already knew the plot, like leggiona I noticed the details and the description of supporting characters. The one I loved more is Miss Bates, with her goodness and neverending talks. She is Emma's alter ego, the image of what she could have become if she didn't marry and was poor. But fortunately Emma is wealthy, and Mr Knightly is simply perfct for her ;)
The book is travelling towards etnagigante.

Emma decided to come and visit my bookshelf

Journal Entry 11 by etnagigante from Catania, Sicilia Italy on Thursday, July 30, 2009
A lot of chats, misunderstandings for the main character. Our heroine believes she is able to comprehend human minds and feelings and finds out her limits. Anyway, among lovely picnics, social evenings and jelousy everything goes to the right places. All the ladies get engaged or married and love is the real winner.
This is the first thought. A careful reading shows us a lot of links, words-games and gives us a different Emma, maybe more human and enjoyable
