Book review: Emma – Jane Austen

EMy latest book review is up over at the 1001 Books blog.  It’s a perennial favourite by Jane Austen – Emma.

I was finally brave and tackled an Austen.  I first read them as a teenager and loved them.  I think I’ve watched every BBC adaptation of her work since that time too.

I can also say that my vague memory of the 1996 film adaptation isn’t one of dread.  Ms Paltrow isn’t a massive favourite with me, but that was more than offset by getting to see Jeremy Northam as Mr Knightley.

Whether you are an Austen fan or not, feel free to pop over to the other blog and leave a comment either for or against.
