Although using this trite doesn t mean that the fact is any less true, it is still at the risk of sounding clich when I say that Jane Austen s classic, Emma, is like a breath of fresh air when juxtaposed to the miasmal novels in the publishing market today especially for someone who has been on a YA binge of late.You see, the reason why I went for Emma as my first Austen read is because my mother has seen the latest movie adaptation, and she claims it to be her very favorite Mind you, she has Although using this trite doesn t mean that the fact is any less true, it is still at the risk of sounding clich when I say that Jane Austen s classic, Emma, is like a breath of fresh air when juxtaposed to the miasmal novels in the publishing market today especially for someone who has been on a YA binge of late.You see, the reason why I went for Emma as my first Austen read is because my mother has seen the latest movie adaptation, and she claims it to be her very favorite Mind you, she hasn t read any thing of Austen s but she loves the movie so very much that she kept pestering me to watch it I suppose I ll have to pester her to read the book now, won t I To which I continually said that, no, no, I will not watch the movie until I ve read the book I positively hate to watch the movie adaptation before reading the book it vir
