 Warning: If you are a fan of Jane Austen and her “amazing” work, then don’t read this. This will be a very negative review. And I am going to be pretty mean. And have been confirmed that I am the only who will never like Jane Austen!

Don’t know what to rate THIS stars!!
(Maybe I will be nice and give it 1 star)


Ugggggggggggghhhh!!!!!!!! So you might ask yourself why did I even read a book by Jane Austen after I had a pretty bad experience with Pride and Prejudice, but I am a good human and I wanted to give Jane Austen a chance, as a good reader.

But PLEEASSEEE!! Jane Austen you and me are DONE.
OVER with a capital O!

Emma sounded pretty good…much better than Pride and Prejudice…but after 100 pages and blah blah of nonsense conversation between rich people I was crying myself to death and was actually running around like a crazy maniac screaming “Please! Let this be over!!.” Well I finally decided to do a smart thing and that was to just stop reading the book and never ever read it again( it took me almost three weeks to read this!)


All I can say is that after making that decision I felt a weight off my shoulders.

I really don’t understand what people LOVE about Jane Austen…I find it difficult to comprehend. I mean I don’t even know what’s so interesting about rich people feeling bad for their sorry ass and deciding who to marry and who not to marry…


And really Emma is just a bitch. A mean, selfish, bitccchhh!!!


If people like a main heroine who is: selfish, stupid, judges people by their levels of society and looks, clueless, and plain old spoiled and mean…well I really don’t know what to say,Other than…Good luck with your life.

Emma was just a book that in my opinion made you want to throw the book across the room and yell “WHAT IN THE HELL??” From the reviews I read everybody liked Emma because she was mean and selfish… REALLY People? REALLY?? Well unfourtunately I didn’t find it as amusing or awesome or excellent as everybody else did. I did not find Emma “awesome” or loved her. In fact I fucking hated her. I just couldn’t believe some of the things she said! And after reading a page about judging people by their looks I gave up and found myself just saying “WOW.”

I think this is the worst classic I have ever read… and I love classics such as: Peter Pan, Little Women, Jane Eyre, Anne of Green Gables and so on. But this book and I don’t mean to disrespect Jane Austen’s fan or her, put the the name “classics” in shame :/.


As of right now I really should have listened to my guts and that awesome thing called a conscience…because then I wouldn’t have had to suffer through this.

Maybe I should try to finish it or re-read it but…what am I writing?!?!?!


Sorry Jane Austen. I think the movie version of your books are WAY better than your actual books

See it on my goodreads.


One thought on “Emma by Jane Austen: review

  1. I am on page 338 of 571. The lights are starting to dim and sharp knives at my wrist are beginning to sound pretty good…and I’m not a masochist. I will finish this book if it is the last thing I do. I think. God help me.

    Anyways, saw your review on good reads and came over to personally congratulate you on your good taste. I’ve bookmarked your blog.
