This was a mission to get through. I've read the story before, and although it's not the most liked of her novels, I enjoyed it hugely. This, however, was absolutely horrid!
The narrator was stilted, monotone and boring. My mother genuinely thought it was a robotic software reading the story. I had to listen to it in small amounts. Shame.
the narrator did a poor job with this classic. I had to turn off after less than 5 minutes. will look for a better option!
Would you try another book from Jane Austen and/or Jane Leclercq?
I love Jane Austen and have listened to others that were very good. Jane Leclercq is ok, definitely not my favorite.
How could the performance have been better?
There are so very many mistakes here it ruined the listening experience. The amount of line re-readings alone makes this a terrible performance. It is not the narrators fault these weren't edited out, but I wish I would have purchased a more expensive version so I could have actually enjoyed it.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Emma?
Any additional comments?
The narrator uses exactly the same voice for every character. Even though I have read this book many times, it made it difficult to follow.

This is an excellent audible reading of Emma, however in some instances it wasn't edited and the same phrase is repeated several times. The narrator is easy to listen to and I enjoyed this book.
