Appreciating Austen through an Engaging Emma

This one is easy to review - totally loved it!
Characterisation and period brought to life - a good story which didn't lose much (as is inevitable) in the editing to achieve the dramatisation.

Accessible and witty

One of the more widely accessible of the classics, Emma is both intellectual, witty, and plain funny. This recoding really brings it to life

another great bbc dramatisation

although emma is not my favorite austen novel, this adapation was very entertaining. i actually own this on cassettes which i purchased years ago. i enjoyed it so much i wanted it on my mp3 player to listened to at any time. if only bbc would adapt pride & prejudice into a radio dramatisation i would be in heaven.

Uncertain as to the quality of sound in dialogue

Any additional comments?

The story is fine, as Jane Austen novels are. The various dialogues though, seem to lack a certain something, in the way that they are delivered. There is an absence of “energy” or “spark” in the voice acting. Sort of like, everyone’s a little uninterested in the whole affair. It confuses me, because a part of me thinks they are all fine actors here. To each his own, I suppose. Might agree with you. A bit of a miss for me.
