We all have heard of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice novel, which overshadows another excellent piece of writing, Emma. The plot revolves around a young woman, Emma, with the need to pair those she knows and loves into couples. However, these acts she may find to have disastrous consequences to her and others, and Emma discovers a thing or two about her own love life, one being that she has no clue about it. So, with excellent irony, and a wit about her dialogue and diction, Emma is the book about the matchmaker who knows so much about love, and yet so little. While the plot may seem slow, a persevering reader, including male readers, may find they’ve enjoyed much more about the novel than they realized.
