Emma (version 3)


Read by Elizabeth Klett

(4.8 stars; 236 reviews)

Jane Austen famously described Emma Woodhouse, the title character of her 1815 novel, as "a heroine whom no-one but myself will much like." Yet generations of readers have loved Emma, as much for her blunders as for her wit and vivacity. Emma, "handsome, clever, and rich," has nothing else to do but try to pair off her friends, and she consistently mis-reads the relationships and situations around her as much as she mis-reads her own heart. The novel features a wonderful cast of characters, including Emma's hypochondriac father, the odiously prideful Mrs. Elton, the mysterious and reserved Jane Fairfax, and Miss Bates, who never stops talking. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett). (14 hr 53 min)

Reviews

A delightful book!

(4.5 stars)

A very pleasant and enjoyable book, expertly read by Elizabeth Klett. Austen brings wonderful expression and humor and Elizabeth does it great justice. I would highly recommend downloading this book and it being your companion until the last syllable.

Amazing book, flawlessly narrated

(5 stars)

Emma was my first Jane austen novel and I loved it, thanks to Elizabeth. I never tire of listening to Ms. Klett as she grasps and relays the tone, virtue and nature of the characters of this book and others.

Austen's Best

(5 stars)

To Ms. Klett : I have fallen in love with Austen due to your wonderful versions. I have listened to all the Austen books you read (Emma being my favorite ) and I am grateful there are people like you that make Librivox a worthwhile tool. You make Austenite beauty, truth, and wit clearly shine through in your amazing reading. I would only ask that you would do more Austen books ! I want to read Mansfield Park but I don't see it your library; could you read that too?

Austen + Texas...?

(3.5 stars)

One of Austen's most charming works, I have always appreciated "Emma", for its unfaltering ability to spread joy. There were a fair few peculiarities of pronunciation which, compounded, were a wee bit distracting, perhaps because the reader was American, I'm not sure. But it was still a pleasant experience, enhanced by some fun character voices that rarely went amiss. Worth a listen.

Very good reading; minor issues

(5 stars)

Elizabeth Klett's reading was very good. I would listen to her read again, and would recommend this version as a go-to for Emma. Her pronunciation was accurate, and her voices were helpful rather than distracting. One minor issue of this version was the inability to load a chapter (Vol. 3 ch. 3), which I had to listen to on another version.

great team ng of an enjoyable book!

(5 stars)

I have never really enjoyed reading Jane Austen's books, but listening to this one was delightful. Out of all the Austen books, I like this one the most but the added emotion and characters' voices made this book come to life. Elizabeth Klett did a fabulous job and made me want to find more of her readings. Bravo!! Great job! I have decided the only way to get through a Jane Austen book is to listen to it.

Fantastic

(5 stars)

Wonderful. i wasn't a fan of the book but Elizabeth Klut's voice keeps me comimg though, i've listened to her read 'Little Women' and my favourite of all 'Pride and Prejudice' and she it is heavenly to the ear ?

Classic!

(5 stars)

I have read this book over and over again, and have always loved it. This was my first time listening to it, and Elizabeth Klett did a wonderful job! There were very few places where the audio was hard to understand, and Klett did a good job of changing tone for each character. :-)
