Emma by Jane Austen

I wish it wasn't so verbose. But given that it was written 200 years ago... I feel it is quite a witty and funny book, and Emma didn't out to be as intolerable as she had started off being. She did grow up in the book. I couldn't put the book down ti ...more

Firstly, it's great that this character was explored. I believe the Ramayan itself states that the biggest sacrifice was given by Urmila.
