Product description

Part of `Penguin's` beautiful hardback `Clothbound Classics` series, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith, these delectable and collectible editions are bound in high-quality colourful, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design. Beautiful, clever, rich - and single - Emma Woodhouse is perfectly content with her life and sees no need for either love or marriage. Nothing, however, delights her more than interfering in the romantic lives of others. But when she ignores the warnings of her good friend Mr Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for her protegee Harriet Smith, her carefully laid plans soon unravel and have consequences that she never expected. With its imperfect but charming heroine and its witty and subtle exploration of relationships, Emma is often seen as Jane Austen's most flawless work.

Customer reviews

By June Rofeta 05 Jun 2013 5

I absolutely love the hardback edition of Austen's "Emma". Perfect for your personal library! One of Austen's best work, I adored the characters and was quite caught up in the troubles Emma spun for herself. I would recommend this book for Austen fans or readers who love historical romance. Once you get over the language of that era, you will greatly enjoy the narrative.
