Issued to tie-in with the release of the movie in which Jeremy played Mr Knightley, this abridged audio version of Jane Austen’s novel was released on cassette but has recently been available to download from audible.com and audible.co.uk.
Beautiful, spoilt and irrepressibly witty, Emma Woodhouse enjoys a position of power and privilege in the small country town of Highbury, where she exercises her considerable intelligence match-making between her friends and acquaintances. The arrival of sweet, silly Harriet Smith gives her the perfect opportunity to embark upon further schemes, greatly trying the patience of her old friend Mr Knightley and very nearly bringing disaster to her unwitting victims.
