] actually thinking about it...maybe it would be quicker if I just mentioned the scenes I didn't like...;-) :
] When Emma and Frank talk about J. Fairfax's new piano and who might have given it to her... the whole scene there seems rushed and leaves you thinking does Emma believe all that farfetched stuff? and goes by so fast it doesn't even make sense and you wonder how could she even have understood it? .....
Especially since in the book the idea of Mr Dixon sending the pianoforte comes from Emma not Frank. But then, Emma2 never does clear up that mystery, so the whole speech could have been omitted.
