I watched the movie with Gwynith Paltro in it and Clueless. both of them left me unprepared for the book. Emma in the story is harshly unlikeable as is her father and Mr. Knightly. They are not only snobs of the first order but hey are stuffed up with there own self importance. I coulden't finish it. Esspeshally when I knew how the story was going to work out.
