Emma

By Jane Austen

Presented by The Online Stage

Emma was the last completed novel by Jane Austen. It tells the story of a spirited and opinionated young woman who lives with her widowed father and who has an unfortunate penchant for interfering in the love life of those around her. As others in her small circle gradually find partners, the question which is at the center of all Jane Austen novels remains to be answered: how will Emma find a husband for herself?

Dear old story spoiled

While I have no gripe with the narrative, of course, I found the narration to be irritating and so bought a different version narrated by Juliette Stevenson whose mellifluous tones match Austen’s classic.

‘Emma’ by Jane Austen, narrated by Libby Stephenson, assisted by diverse actors.

Horrible wrecking of an otherwise brilliant story!! Narrator rushing along as if she couldn’t wait to finish. I do NOT recommend this version of ‘Emma’. However, Audible has another version, beautifully narrated by Anna Bentinck. Recommend this highly. My opinion is also that any Austen novel should be narrated/acted in English, not American.
