I'm a little farther into Emma... it's still just okay (sorry!). I'm still suspending judgement, but Emma is losing me fast. It's just not as interesting as I'd hoped. I'm just not hooked. And I'm trying to diagnose my lack of interest. It made me think of reasons that a book would make me drag my feet. It could be:
- The characters aren't worth investing my emotions
- I don't have any idea what's happening?!??!?!
- Nothing has happened.
- Nothing will happen.
- Someone else suggested it and I'm only reading it because they wanted me to.
I really do think that this Mr. Knightley will play a big role with Emma. I also think that Harriet Smith is going to have a significant role in the plot of this story. I'm just full of predictions. They make the reading more interesting.
