Wonderful classic. The ending in particular gave such a warm feeling and (this may be the romantic in me) almost made me cry in joy for the characters. It is an excellent way of immersing oneself into the past without having to compromise heavily on morals since there is no overt discrimination (of course it is a product of its time and therefore there is both sexism and racism inherently present). Would highly recommend to those who want something slow paced and lighthearted.

Emma by Jane Austen is very slow paced as it follows the protagonist Emma as she experiences the trivialities of everyday life.  In spite of the slow pace, I believe this makes the book all the more interesting as it forces you to become highly familiar with the characters to craft a deep understanding of them.
As you follow Emma throughout the novel, her insight and thoughts keep this read constantly enthralling.
Overall, I really enjoyed this novel, but I do understand that it may not be enjoyable to all due to the length and slow pace.
