Emma (version 3)

Gelesen von Elizabeth Klett

(4,775 Sterne; 2153 Bewertungen)

Jane Austen famously described Emma Woodhouse, the title character of her 1815 novel, as "a heroine whom no-one but myself will much like." Yet generations of readers have loved Emma, as much for her blunders as for her wit and vivacity. Emma, "handsome, clever, and rich," has nothing else to do but try to pair off her friends, and she consistently mis-reads the relationships and situations around her as much as she mis-reads her own heart. The novel features a wonderful cast of characters, including Emma's hypochondriac father, the odiously prideful Mrs. Elton, the mysterious and reserved Jane Fairfax, and Miss Bates, who never stops talking. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett). (14 hr 53 min)

Delightful!

(5 Sterne)

Emma just might be my new favorite work of Austen’s. I love the characters, the story line is excellent, and the book is full of the sparkling wit that characterizes Jane Austen. Not to mention Elizabeth Klett, who gave life to each character! Her narrating is delightful, I’m very grateful for her recording of Emma. Definitely recommend!

(5 Sterne)

I'm in love with Elizabeth Klett's reading. The women's voices were especially well done. Everything was so vivid through Ms Klett's reading of it. I didn't think I would enjoy an audiobook and for a first, this was a wonderful experience. And what can I say about Emma? Austen might have thought nobody but her would like Emma, but Ms Woodhouse is too charming not to be liked. I do think I would have liked a little more Mr. Knightley, but this was a wonderful story ♡

amazing writing

(5 Sterne)

The indirect dialogue style is fascinating and it's so cool how the author is able to characterize each person so distinctly. Mr. Woodhouse and Ms. Bates made me laugh so hard. 😊

A perfect book perfectly read

(5 Sterne)

This has always been my favourite Jane Austen novel. That’s partly because I’m familiar with many of the locations (I grew up near Box Hill); partly because of the vivacity, wit and wisdom of the narrative and the brilliance and clarity of the prose style; and partly because of the depth and subtlety of the characterisation. All these characters live and stay in the imagination ; the story takes us on a wonderful journey of self discovery; and every chapter is at once captivating, engaging and amusing. The central character is perfect in being so humanly imperfect, so attractive and sympathetic even when she is in error (which she usually is). And the reading is similarly perfect. Elizabeth Klett captures the fluency, vibrancy and bright melody of Austen’s prose and the sheer variety of voices, tones and accents in play here. Thanks to her, a novel that I’ve read more times than I care to remember, and parts of which I know by heart, has been given new life for me. A perfect book given a perfect reading.

I loved how amazing the reader was. I tend to be kind of picky when it comes to good readers. In my opinion the reader plays into the enjoyment of the audiobook a lot. Elizabeth Klett did an amazing job at giving the different characters different voices. I would highly recommend this to any Jane Austen fan. The story itself was amazing as well! Definitely check it out.

Elizabeth Klett is a marvellous reader

(5 Sterne)

I come back to Prof Klett's versions of the Austen novels time and again. One day I prefer Persuasion, the next Pride and Prejudice. Sometimes the wonderful Mr Tilney and the tongue-in-cheek humour of Northanger jostle forward. But it is indisputable that Ms Austen left us a truly outstanding body of work. Thank you to both creator and narrator!

One of My Favorites

(5 Sterne)

Wonderful reading of one of my favorite Austen books. It is one of Austen's longest books. Although Emma as a main character is somewhat spoiled and not very perceptive, her vivacity and good intentions all combined to create a lot of humor and fun. Full of satire and liveliness, this book is a joy to listen to multiple times.

(5 Sterne)

Beautifully narrated! Absolute perfection and quite funny that Jane Austen didn’t think others would like Emma but I think she’s too charming to not fall in love with. This has always been one of my favorite books and it was a pleasure to listen to this time around!
