Her side stories are my favorite, and this volume was nothing but side stories.

I'm surprised at the ratings. I enjoyed these stories even more than the regular series. The first nearly made me cry and the newspaper story was clever. I found all the short stories well crafted.

3.5 Stars

A lovely mix of short stories that take place in the Emmaverse:

1. Young Mrs. Stowner and her husband dream about visiting the Great Exhibition.
2. Eleanor ventures to Brighton and has the possibility of a new romance in the horizon.
3. Vignettes around London connected by the London Times newspaper.
4. Emma's fellow maid, Tasha, spends a day off with her family.

My favorite was definitely the Eleanor story which made me happy. I also really liked the sweet, but bittersweet Mrs. Stowner stor

If you are looking for another story about the love between Emma and William then you may be disappointed by this volume of the Emma series. This installment fleshes out the stories of some of the minor characters from earlier in the Emma books, and Emma hardly appears at all.

The quality of the art in these books is still superb, and if you like looking at detailed drawings of life in Victorian England then you should still like it.

My favorite storyline in this book was that of a young Mrs. Stow
This volume is several short stories in the Emma-universe. The first story, about Ms. Stowner and her husband as a young couple, was a delight to read. It was great to see her as a young woman and to see what her life (like the lives of others in the Victorian age) was like, as well as to see how much she and Douglas loved each other.

The second story was about Eleanor after the events of Emma Volume 7. I can't say that I cared much, as I found her character not very likable, but it was still go

Mori Kaoru's Emma, Vol.08-10 act as a fun and heartwarming set of short-story denouement to the main series plot. Acting as an ex post-facto story arc, many of the minor characters we come to know from the main series are given treated to one of the following: a much deserved and fleshed out ending (as in the case of Eleanor *swoon*), an exposition that leads up to where we met them in the main series (as in Aurelia), a side-story that follows immediately after we we left off with them but doesn ...more

Kaoru Mori, Emma, vol. 8 (CMX, 2009)

Emma finished with the end of vol. 7, and yet three more volumes were published. Vol. 8 revisits some old friends with slice-of-life stories that give us insights into their characters outside the main storyline. Of especial note is the first two-parter, which gives us a young Kelly Stowner and her husband Doug in an O. Henry-style plot to save up the two shilling they'll need to visit the first World's Fair (while Mori never explicitly mentions it, it's proba

This volume of Emma is a group of shorter stories revolving around some of the side characters in the series.
Eleanor hasn't ben my favorite character up to this point (which for me is actually only the fourth volume right now - I decided it was okay to read this one out of order since it isn't following the main storyline). All the same, her story was probably my favorite in the book, and I think I like her a little better now.
There is also a story that shows Mrs. Stowner and her husband visit

I remember I finished Emma when I was in my second year, but I think it was just volume 7. I am so glad I found this on a sale in a mall nearby campus before I headed back to my hometown. My friends patiently waited and helped me look for other volumes of Emma :D

And I fall in love again with Kaoru Mori's artwork. Sometimes I feel Emma is just like other soaps out there, but damn it I don't care, Emma's story is so heartbreaking T^T

This volume is mainly about other characters' lives, I am not com
Apparently these next couple of volumes will tell the story of secondary characters in the Emma series. This volume starts out with the background story of Kelly, the former employer of Emma, and her new husband Doug. They go to the Great Exhibition at the Crystal Palace and are blown away. Eleanor and her sisters are in Brighton so she can get over William, and meets a friend of his instead, who she ends up liking. We catch a glimpse into the life of Tasha, Emma's friend at the Meredith house, ...more

I think it's a very romantic dramatic comedy that people should read cause once you start reading it you can't stop until you finish the whole book, It's amazing.

Short stories from the world of Emma. I particularly like the story telling us about Douglas and Kelly Stowner early married life.

Volume 7 was the last of the main story. Apparently the last three volumes are just side stories, which makes me a little sad.
I really liked the short stories even though I can't figure out who Bear is
Doug and Kellys' story is so cute and sweet! I loved it!

Not sure why I'm continuing with the series, now that it's only about supplementary characters and Emma and William's story is pretty much over. I'm getting of tired of having to keep turning the pages peeking out of one eye, wondering when the inevitable nude scene will appear. It's so silly, it's not even related to anything romantic, it's usually just some women bathing or hanging around in their rooms with no clothes on.
This is a collection of short stories about the characters from the Emma series. I didn't enjoy this volume as much as the previous 7, which all make up one big story. It was fun to see some of the background stories about the characters... but I just didn't like it quite as much. In don't generally like short stories, though, so this isn't very surprising.

This book was full of what Mori called "side stories." To me they felt like prequels and sequels to the main Emma & William story. While some were interesting, it overall was not what I wanted. I wanted to read about Emma and William. I never tired of them or their story. The rest was just "eh." And I'm worried that the Emma part will be over.

This is a collection of short stories about some of the other characters in the Emma series, set in Victorian England. Some take place before Emma's story in volume 1-7, and some coincide.

As with the rest of the series, the drawings are fabulous and the historical detail is excellent.
A nice book but I expected the whole series to be mostly about Emma (since it's named after her) so I was a little disappointed when that was not the case. This book was about other characters in the series: young Kelly and Doug, Violet and her lover plus Tasha and her family.

Well to be honest, i was kind of disappointed with this volume. The transition between Emma and William's storyline was a little bit messy. It kept me wondering when they will pop-up. But think this is my second favorite volume all in all.

kecewa, karena buku berjudul Emma ini malah tidak menghadirkan si Emma -_-. Untunglah ada kisah Crystal Palace.

Dan tampaknya masih akan bersambung lagi. semoga di nomor berikutnya ada kisah Emma *berdoa* :D

The more I read this series the more I love it. These last few "side story" volumes are even more wonderful, as far as the glimpse they give into Victorian England and its people's daily life and surroundings.
the first in a series of volumes of shorts set in the emmaverse. i liked this a little less than the main story - eleanor's story in particular failed to convince. but it was still delicious.

Mielestäni hieman tarpeeton jatko-osa Emma-sarjalle, en ollut missään vaiheessa erityisen kiinnostunut näistä sivuhenkilöistä, joiden juonenkäänteet haluttiin viedä loppuun omassa kirjassaan.

This volume starts the side stories in the Emma universe, little more than glimpses into their lives. Lovely details about Victorian life. Very short but quite satisfying.

I absolutely loved the Victorian era and reading about it plus romance is always a good thing. I was really excited to read this series and it didn't disappoint!
Jake Forbes
Cute, but the "Emmaverse" is a little too precious when you strip away the central melodrama. I do love Mori's attention to detail, though.
