Sherry reads Jane Austen’s sparkling comedy of manners with wit and vivacity, and brings the characters to life. Mr. Woodhouse worries and frets, Miss Bates chatters on, and Emma blithely manipulates and misunderstands her friends and family until she finally learns her lesson!

A great book and very nicely read!

Fun, witty book as are all Austen's wonderful novels! Here, it is well and sensibly read without affectation and with a good understanding of the text. I very much appreciate the kind efforts of the sole reader; it improves continuity for listeners. The story itself is surprisingly timeless! Even in modern times, most of us know some insufferable Eltons and aggravating Churchills.

Entertaining for my drive but would have been interminable to actually read. Wish I could skim over much of the rambling formality.

Long but good

I am not reviewing the story but rather the reader of the book. The reader has a very strong North American accent and I don't feel she did the characters voices as well as some. I suggest "Emma (version 3)" for those that are put off by strong American accents. Although that reader is also North American she gives the characters a lovely English accent which I find essential when listening to an ENGLISH classic.
