Emma (version 5)


Read by Moira Fogarty

(4.7 stars; 150 reviews)

A cautionary tale about the evils of interference, matchmaking and good intentions turned awry, Emma is the study of a young woman raised without sufficient discipline or occupation. Handsome, clever and rich, Emma is the epitome of what a young woman should be in Regency England, except for the fact that her indulgent father and lack of a mother have left her spoiled and used to getting her own way. Emma's only true critic and voice of reason is Mr. Knightley, a gentleman whose opinion she values greatly. She delights in meddling in the romantic affairs of everyone around her, thinking celibacy is a privilege she alone can enjoy by virtue of her social standing. In the end, Emma is forced to acknowledge both her own lack of insight into the motives of others, and admit her need for a companion who can challenge her to become a better woman.

Well Read


(5 stars)

An enjoyable listen as the reader, Moria, changes her voice to emphasize the different characters. My favorite of her’s is Mrs. Elton. She captures the slyness and snobbery of the character very well.

Good Listen


(5 stars)

The plot was kinda slow at times. But I found the story interesting overall, and the narration was excellent. I appreciate how Moira gave each character a different voice.

Wonderfully done


(5 stars)

No one can compare to Jane Austin for writing,, Ms Fogerty does justice to the reading of this beloved story

Ms Fogarty ,sorry i couldn't find other place to leave my message to you,so may i ask a question here? i saw your book list of your future plans, The Secret Garden and others..... so exciting to hear them. thank you.. seems you really like children literature. but did you read any book of djuna barnes we couldn't find any audiobook of her in any web.maybe i am not good at search ,but we have learnt her nightwood in our american literature of 20s by this term,we do hope to find a audiobook of her.to understand this difficult work more if we could. thank you again for all of your work. hope our question didn't disturb you happy new year

Terrific reading


(5 stars)

I am almost at the end of Emma, and I simply cannot imagine a better reading than Moira Fogarty gives us here. The pitch, the timing, the intonations, the attention to detail, to ever word, all are marvelous. Yet all seems perfectly natural (she also makes me, with my own readings for LV, turn green with jealousy). I wish I could share my admiration for Ms. Fogarty’s splendid work with a similar admiration for Ms. Emma W. Yes, I know that by the end of the book, Austen would like us to believe that Emma has learned her lesson. I don’t believe it for an instant. Wait until the little Knightleys start populating the nursery. EWK, as a mother, will revert to her meddling managerial style, and -- unless their sensible ather intervenes -- she might become the worst sort of (to use a phrase that only came two centuries later) helicopter parent.

Don't miss it!


(5 stars)

I usually only listen to English voices reading the English classics, so I nearly missed a treat here. Moira Fogarty's reading is absolutely splendid: clear, well-paced throughout and free from errors. She brings the various characters to life. I noticed that she brings out so many of the nuances in Austen's writing - including several that I had missed when reading and re-reading the book. My rating is for Moira's reading. It goes without saying that the book itself merits five stars.
