Now that I've finished The Innocent Man, it's time for me to pick a new book. And I have! Today, I started to read Emma by Jane Austen. I'm really excited about it! I've read Pride and Prejudice (which I loved), so it will be interesting to see how I like Emma. I really love the way that Austen writes, and the language is beautiful to me... as opposed to being confusing. Plus, I'm also a diehard romantic, and a story about a matchmaker sounds perfect. Our teacher lent it to me, and suggested that after reading it, I should watch Clueless because the movie is based off of Emma. Well, I've seen Clueless, so I'm going to make a couple of predictions about what happens:
- Emma is a lovely, but naive matchmaker who doesn't always see what is best for the people she matches.
- Emma's mother died when she was a child- this is taken straight out of Clueless.
- Emma ends up with someone she doesn't think is all that great- at first. She slowly grows to like him over the course of the book.
Any other predictions?
