Revue de presse

Winner of The Big Red Reads Fiction Award 2011. Short-listed for the Melissa Nathan Award for Comedy Romance 2009. --Publisher

A spirited retelling of Emma by Jane Austen will prove and enjoyable read to those who know the original story and those who don't. Definitely recommended. Buy - Yes, Borrow - Yes. --The Bookbag

... Juliet Archer (well she has the right initials anyway) has reinvented my absolute favourite Austen novel for a 21st-century audience, and done it with breathtaking charm and verve. --Jane Austen Regency World Magazine

Présentation de l'éditeur

Mark Knightley – handsome, clever, rich – is used to women falling at his feet. Except Emma Woodhouse, who’s like part of the family – and the furniture. When their relationship changes dramatically, is it an ending or a new beginning?

Emma’s grown into a stunningly attractive young woman, full of ideas for modernising her family business. Then Mark gets involved and the sparks begin to fly. It’s just like the old days, except that now he’s seeing her through totally new eyes.

While Mark struggles to keep his feelings in check, Emma remains immune to the Knightley charm. She’s never forgotten that embarrassing moment when he discovered her teenage crush on him. He’s still pouring scorn on all her projects, especially her beautifully orchestrated campaign to find Mr Right for the ditzy PA. And finally, when the mysterious Flynn Churchill – the man of her dreams – turns up, how could she have eyes for anyone else?

With its clueless heroine and entertaining plot, this modern re-telling of Jane Austen's Emma stays true to the original, while giving fresh insights into the mind of its thoroughly updated and irresistible hero.

Winner of The Big Red Reads Fiction Award 2011 & short-listed for the Melissa Nathan Award for Comedy Romance 2009.

HASH(0x98af2360) étoiles sur 5 Ruined the characters 29 mai 2012
Par COO-Character Development Lab. - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Well, at least the author renamed Mr. Knightley, "Mark". Because there is next to nothing in this character to suggest St. George, the patron saint of England. Too bad the author kept his last name Knightley because some of the horribly hurtful, stab-in-the-heart things he says to Emma destroy any notion that this is a chivalrous man. Throw in all the lust, sex and trash talking ("When's the last time you were shagged?" Harriet asks Emma over lunch) and you have a book of polar opposite mores from the original. Thus, this book could be used to write an essay to compare/contrast it with the original and then extrapolate to demonstrate how following modern sexual mores destroy our hearts.

I bought the Kindle edition - a waste of $0.99. I won't be reading any other "Darcy and Friends" books.

I've decided to refresh my mind with The Annotated Emma.

HASH(0x98a2bb10) étoiles sur 5 UGH! Emma & Knightly are unlikeable & Everyone's having sex 15 avril 2012
Par BookshireCrone - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
updating this story shouldn't mean you have to make all the characters fixated on sex. Knightly is too old for Emma. He's also too boring,& can't seem to think outside his pants. Emma has no positive qualities at all & is also fixated on fullfilling her lustfull thoughts. UGH! the frame of the story is fine, but no where do you ever get the idea that Emma is actually the smart, kind person she is said to be. This character went to Harvard ? No way. She also never actually DOES anything at work & she is definately not nice or kind...she wears suggestive clothing and talks is she better than Harriet ? Mr. Knightly noticing Emma as all grown up is disgusting: her pert butt full of promise...Blech what trash. If you're a lonely single woman & you want a story to "do the nasty" to, then help yourself to this useless fare. Less is more interesting when it comes to romantic descriptions and real qualities like kindsness, gentleness ,and good character are still just as attractive as they were in the Old Austen books...which is why they endure. Let the main characters be attractive, by all means,just keep it real and simple, without the porn.

HASH(0x98f58480) étoiles sur 5 An Originative and Decadent Reinvention of a Jane Austen's "Emma" 29 mars 2010
Par Meredith (Austenesque Reviews) - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Mark Knightley, after working in Mumbai, India for eight years, returns to Highbury to discover that his sister-in-law, Emma Woodhouse, has grown up. While he was gone, the awkward teenager who had a crush on him matured into an intelligent, confident, and gorgeous twenty-three old preparing to make her debut as the new Marketing Director of Highbury Foods, a small mail-order food distributing company. Mark is assigned the position of being Emma's mentor (a very fitting role for him, isn't it?) by Mr. Woodhouse, Managing Director of Highbury Foods. Now Mark faces not only the difficult challenge of mentoring the obstinate and willful Emma, but of masking his growing feelings for her and keeping his unbrotherly thoughts at bay.

Emma, on the other hand, while elated that one of closest and dearest friends has returned, cannot help but feel exasperated that Mark still treats her like a kid sister. Trying to establish herself as an educated and competent businesswoman, Emma loathes the interference of "Know-it-all Knightley" especially when it concerns her matchmaking endeavors. In addition, she still feels the mortification of her childhood crush on him and his repulsed reaction to it. However, Emma no longer has her eyes set on Mark Knightley, she is determined that her dream man is the long-awaited-for "son of Highbury," Flynn Churchill, a television chef from Australia.

In this contemporary adaptation of "Emma," Juliet Archer aptly and admirably brings the beloved classic to the 21st Century with the inclusion of many of our old friends such as: Mr. Woodhouse, with is anxieties for his fragile health; Miss (Mary) Bates, who is still an effusive conversationalist; Jane Fairfax, who is an intern at Highbury Foods; and Harriet Smith, who is ditzier than ever and has a bizarre wardrobe to match. There are some new twists that will be surprising for Jane Austen fans, such as the existence of another woman in Mark Knightley's life. Furthermore, I would recommend this book for Mature Audiences only as there is the occasional use of profanity and a few intimate scenes.

It was with great anticipation and excitement that I embarked upon reading "The Importance of Being Emma," and it exceeded my expectations! One aspect I loved was how the author switched between Emma and Mark as the narrator (don't worry, she did this in a clear and concise manner). It was an enlightening experience to understand and see things from both characters' point-of-view, and I loved being privy to their personal thoughts and inner musings Moreover, I loved Ms. Archer's portrayal of Emma and Mr. Knightley; her Emma was feisty, maddening, yet lovable, and her Mr. Knightley was very sexy and oh so irresistible!

While this novel excellently depicted the emotional and angst-filled relationship between Emma and Mark, I did feel that some of the other characters' story-lines were sometimes a little overlooked and underdeveloped. I would have liked for the Flynn Churchill/Jane Fairfax story to be given more page time.

In her fresh and sparkling debut novel, Juliet Archer emerges as a talented and clever author that clearly loves and cherishes Jane Austen and her works! I am in raptures that Ms. Archer has ambitiously set a goal to pen more modern versions of Jane Austen's novels in her "Jane Austen in the 21st Century Series!" I will be ecstatic if she includes "Sanditon" by Jane Austen and Another Lady in her series! What a treasure that would be for us voracious Austenites! Her next novel is entitled "Persuade Me," can you guess which Jane Austen novel it will be reinventing?

HASH(0x99ed0648) étoiles sur 5 Guilty Pleasure of The Best Kind 21 mai 2012
Par Amazon Customer Amy - Publié sur

The Importance of Being Emma is a guilty pleasure. It's a nice re-telling of Jane Austen's novel, Emma. It follows the life of Emma Woodhouse, but in modern times with a bit of racy bits that are absolutely divine. Mr. Knightly is depicted in a way that makes a girl blush. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has every fantasized about how Mr. Knightly and Emma Woodhouse got together if they were in the modern world. I LOVE this book :)

I am a hard core Jane Austen fan, but mainly I read P&P rewrites. I noticed this one on a review and decided to give it a try, and I am so glad that I did. It was well worth it. Emma is one of my JA favorite books, and this one is now a favorite twist. Once again I tried to pace myself reading, and tried to wait until I had a little bit more time, but the story just pulls you in. It's an amazing modern twist on Emma that you would hate to miss out on.
