it was ok
bookshelves: 2010-reads, classics-redone

I have to say, I never remembered Jane Austen's Emma as being a so, well, clueless. Or petty... But I guess she was, because I sincerely doubt Wayne Josephson completely rewrote a classic!

I requested a copy of Emma and the Vampires because I'd just gotten into the whole re-imagined classics genre with Jane Slayre, and thought it would be fun to read another. But I have to admit, I didn't enjoy this one very much. I didn't like Emma very much--she stuck her nose where it didn't belong, had a completely inflated opinion of herself, and was quite petty and a tad rude, just because somebody else dared to impress her friends and neighbors. In fact, I thought she was quite the brat.

And maybe I'm just getting old and cranky, but I found that I really wasn't in the mood for brattiness. This one was just ok to me.
