Also, "Emma" is not just the simple story it seems like on the surface. There are many levels besides the one of the main character gaining self knowledge. There's class structure, the woman in society in that period of history, and a psychological dimension. I didn't just read the book and put it aside. I would gain different insights during the next several weeks, say while I was shopping or driving in the car. I think the mark of a great book is that it stays with you and causes you to keep evaluating.
