Glad to have revisited this book and will revisit others but don't think they will be by Jane Austen. My book was downloaded onto my Kindle from Amazon.
An earlier work by Austen but you can clearly see the brilliance that was to be achieved with at least one later novel.
Some words were truly new while at the same time, quite old; they were words used in times past. A few could be found in the dictionary, some could not, which meant that there were instances in which the meanings of these obsolete words had to be guessed.
The ending was predictable. What was apparently scandal in days gone by, was somewhat anti-climatic (Oh no! They'd been secretly engaged!!!!!). And the ramblings of Miss Bates, though somewhat annoying, even to the reader, actually provided a great deal of insight and understanding.

A delightful romp on the wild side. Emma is like a modern-day political poll.
