Brittany Pressley and Teddy Hamilton's sparkling characterizations and propulsive delivery of narrative demand the listener's attention throughout this contemporary retelling of Jane Austen's EMMA. The setting is the Upper East Side of Manhattan, where the Woodhouses and the Knightleys reside in neighboring townhouses. Pressley and Hamilton excel at conveying Emma Woodhouse and George Knightley's banter and occasional notes of exasperation as the two slowly acknowledge their love for each other. Pressley's versatility of expression is evident in her characterizations, especially that of Emma, whose bright timbre and curious tone reflect her intense interest in the affairs of others. Hamilton brings forth the sweetness underlying George's clever, sardonic demeanor. This audiobook is packed with energy, humor, and more than a touch of poignancy.
