] To Anyone Out There: When you read Emma for the first time, did you suspect the truth about Frank and Jane? Or were you "doomed to blindness" like Emma. I'm interested to know. I can't remember at all my own degree of cleverness but someone probably spoiled it for me by telling me the plot anyway.
I had an idea that they knew each other better than they let others understand but I didn't really think there would be anything like that.
I think that's one of the best things with JA: you just never guess and never suspect anything before you know, and then it seems so obvious that you feel stupid and have to read the book again, knowing what's going to happen. But that is also a problen with adapting her books, because you can easily spoil the fun by telling too much.
