Sam (aramsamsam) I started this today and Emma is the first Austen protagonist I don't like. It is pretty clear from the beginning that she manipulates people to enjoy herself. This is going to be an interesting read.

Pat Morris-jones | 1372 comments I love Emma as she's so honest. However I do understand what you mean. It's very up to date, considering when it was set. I think that's why it's a classic as every generation can think of people or societies they know, or have known, with these characters in them. Plus how well it is written, of course.

Sam (aramsamsam) Of course ;)

I want to add that I enjoy the book a lot, it's just that I do not sympathize with Emma like I did with other Austen heroines.
