Love Jane Austen, love a good retelling of one of her books. This one was good--not great but good. There are times I wanted to smack the characters in this modernized version of Emma--namely Emma herself. Her slightly spoiled, personality along with her other character "quirks" are charming in the original, but as a 23-year old modern English marketing whiz and career woman, they make her immature and somewhat annoying at times. Still it was a light, fun read on the Kindle that was much needed in a not-so-great week. It might just influence me to give the author's modernized Persuasion a try.
