Emma is the first Jane Austen work that I've read and it would be an understatement to say that I found it marvellous! It's hard not to fall in love with the characters which are crafted so beautifully- right from Emma the protagonist to Mrs. Elton! I particularly loved Mr. Knightley. The best thing about the story is the old world classic charm and the way a person's character is guaged according to his letter writing skills! It makes one wonder how beautiful life must have been in the ear when people actually had the depth and the insight to analyse other individuals unlike the modern fast paced life where sms language is the order of the day!
Reading Emma is an experience in itself and such a beautiful one!
