A review by paradaiso
Emma, by Jane Austen

hopeful lighthearted slow-paced

  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


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.
