I've been attempting to read Emma....for about a month now. I bought this beautiful old hardback copy at my favorite used bookstore in Phoenix before we moved. It's red and turquoise...with gold foil lettering on the binding. It's a very pretty lil book.
Being the Austin fan that I think I am...I'm surprised I can't get into it. I think Emma's a snotty nit wit. I tend to want to love the main characters I read about...and she annoys the hell outta me.
To make this a little more ridiculous...I've seen the movie staring Gwenyth Paltrow. Umm...I own the movie in fact. But I haven't seen it in so long, I can't quite recall anything.
Does it get better? Or should I just keep it on the bookshelf to admire the pretty colors?
