Book 63: Emma by Alexander McCall Smith

This is part of the Austen Project - six modern authors writing modern takes on Jane Austen titles. I've read a couple of them now, and while this was good, and faithful to the story while being presented in a modern way, it suffered from the same problem which the original has for me - I just don't really like Emma. She makes me cringe. Give me Elizabeth Bennett, Elinor Dashwood, Fanny Price - or even better, Anne Elliot - any day. Heck, I'll even take Catherine Morland. (Though honestly, haven't read Northanger Abbey in so many years I might be wrong about that last one...)
