Emma - Jane Austen

I have mixed feelings about whether I enjoyed this book or not.  There are times when modern adaptations are helpful and times when they are not.  I found that the movie "Clueless" (seen many times as a teenager) helped me through the first volume of this book, I could completely relate to what was happening as I had a similar reference. 

Once through the first volume I found my reading slowed down, a lot.  It's not that I didn't enjoy the book, but I felt that I really didn't want to battle through the waffle just to get to the story.  This is not my favourite of Austen's work, but I think now I could read it and skim over the bits that lost my interest.

Also, whilst the story ended how I originally expected it to, whilst reading the book my expectations then changed so was pleasantly surprised with such a happy ending.
