Duration: 4 hours 52 minutes

Summary:

She knows a match when she sees one, but she's clueless about her own heart.

Emma Woodhouse is happily single, though that's never stopped her from making matches for others. Her best friend, George Knightley, thinks it's a sure way to trouble, but what's wrong with giving romance a little nudge?

George has been fighting his feelings for Emma for years, but with families so closely intertwined, rocking the friendship boat would complicate more than just their relationship. He won't do that to her, or ask why she keeps cuddling up next to him on the couch to watch their favorite show at night.

When a matchmaking scheme gone wrong drives a wedge between them, the last thing they want is to face each other. But when Emma's sister goes into labor and they're the babysitters for the weekend, they'll have to set aside their pride and undeniable chemistry to tackle diaper duty together.

Don't miss this modern take on Jane Austen's Emma with all the characters you know and love.

    Do you ever feel sad as you finish your book, wishing that it would just continue on and on? This is exactly how I felt as this book came to a close. I felt impatient through the whole book for Mr. Knightley and Emma to finally come together, but I just hated to see their story end. This was probably the best Emma adaptation that I have ever read. Definitely one of the best Austin adaptations! It fits so perfectly with modern times, yet still kept true to the heart of the original story. Well done! I have the e-book through Amazon, and I also received an audiobook review copy of this book through audiobooks.com and really enjoyed how the narrator portrayed this book.

    Story: 5 stars I won this audiobook in a drawing, but even though it was free, I feel no obligation to the author to be anything but honest in my review. I will admit that Emma is my least favorite of Jane Austen's books (I know, shocking, right?). That said, I anticipated that I really wouldn't like this book all that much. I've read a TON of P&P variations and nobody really is able to capture the wit, the astute observation of character, etc. that Jane Austen does. So, I definitely came into this with low expecations. I found this book to be surprisingly delightful! It stayed very true to the original plot and yet kept it believably modern. The names are the same, and so there is a comfort for the reader in that. The plot is cleverly adjusted to remain authentic to the original, but perfectly gives the characters their motivation for acting the way they do. The best part of the whole thing is that we get to hear the characters' thoughts. Emma is much more well-meaning, although every bit as mistaken in her reading of other's characters, as the original. And George Knightly is a joy! We get to hear his thoughts! The mutual attraction is more evident right from the start, but both are worried about ruining an amazing friendship and then having to live with the consequences forever since they are related through marriage. Their banter is so well-written!! I know that those true to Jane Austen will cringe when I say that I like this version so much better than the original and in all honesty, I can't say that of any other adaptation I've read of which I can say the same. For me, with the exception of Emma, the originals are, and will ever remain, the masterpieces. Narration: 4.5 stars Ms. Dulude does a great job of voice acting the banter between characters. She reads with the perfect speed, good cadence and great expression. I'd happily listen to her narration again! *poor, **ok, ***good, ****very good, *****something special
