Second after Pride & Prejudice! Enjoyed it a lot - the author has a known talent of revealing the characters through interesting encounters and character own reflections. It teaches a lot about selfishness, follies, prejudices. So many times the rich and beautiful Emma was proved to be wrong in her judgements and schemes! During the number of events she learns to be more humble.
Awful, just awful. This story makes no freakin' sense! Ok, first of all, the main character Emma is soooo stupid! How could she do such a foolish thing??? Like, why would she do that??! Ahhh! Poor Mrs. Margaret & Matilda who have to deal with her & fix all her problems! And don't even get me started on Mr. Terence who's grumpy all the time! Anyway! The only good part about this book is when *spoilers* Mr. Woodstock gets hit by a tennis ball and Multo's response is "Oh my!" while Sir Thomas just drinks tea.
shark nonsense Not sure what to say all know is there was a shark on her bed now why would she do that? Pls this setting things up has to stop i blame mr woodstock
