Emma (version 3)
Jane Austen famously described Emma Woodhouse, the title character of her 1815 novel, as “a heroine whom no-one but myself will much like.” Yet generations of readers have loved Emma, as much for her blunders as for her wit and vivacity. Emma, “handsome, clever, and rich,” has nothing else to do but try to pair off her friends, and she consistently mis-reads the relationships and situations around her as much as she mis-reads her own heart. The novel features a wonderful cast of characters, including Emma’s hypochondriac father, the odiously prideful Mrs. Elton, the mysterious and reserved Jane Fairfax, and Miss Bates, who never stops talking. .

Although I normally enjoy Ms Austin's books, I find "Emma" a bit drawn out and have never managed to finish reading it myself. However, having it read to me improved my experience. I tried all the versions available at the time and found this one to be the best. Elizabeth must be commended on her ability to give each character plausible identity.

Rather than reviewing the book I would like to review the reader of this audio book. I highly recommend this version for download especially for Australian or British listeners. The reader is American but has a neutral pleasing accent. When listening to British books I tend to dislike a strong American accent as I heard on another version of "Emma"
