    This review is for Emma only. I previously read The Professor last year, and also gave it a four star rating. I know that, if it were finished, this would probably receive a five star rating from me, but because it isn't finished I've given it a four. I know I'd love Emma if it was a finished novel. Charlotte only managed to write two chapters before sadly dying, but from those two chapters alone it seems like a dramatic and fun plot. The first chapter describes the arrival of a wealthy girl name This review is for Emma only. I previously read The Professor last year, and also gave it a four star rating. I know that, if it were finished, this would probably receive a five star rating from me, but because it isn't finished I've given it a four. I know I'd love Emma if it was a finished novel. Charlotte only managed to write two chapters before sadly dying, but from those two chapters alone it seems like a dramatic and fun plot. The first chapter describes the arrival of a wealthy girl named Matilda Fitzgibbon at a private school - because of her wealth, she is treated exceptionally. In the second chapter, it is revealed that she is assuming a fake identity. It ends before any of our questions are answered. When reading this, you know it's a Charlotte Brontë novel. As usual, she directly addresses the readers, asking them to picture this or imagine that. There's also the young child who is separated from their parents for whatever reason. Additionally, there's the mysterious atmosphere that shrouds the narrative. These are all things I love about Charlotte's writing, so I can't help but feel like I would have loved this if it were finished. I don't know where the plot would have gone from this, but I can tell it would have been magnificent. I definitely think I'll get round to reading Emma Brown, which is Clare Boylan's take on how the story would have gone. It wasn't really on my radar until I read this, but I'm intrigued by how this story could have potentially ended, and maybe Boylan can shed some convincing light on the matter. I'm really glad that I read this, but I so wish it was finished!

    The Professor review -> see reading activity. Emma -> promising! The despair that we may never know Matilda’s truth nor who Emma is.

    I've already read the The Professor a while back, I skipped straight to Emma, which actually two chapters of an unfinished novel that the author started before her death. Matilda Fitzgibbon arrives at an expensive private school and, because of her status as a heiress, she is flattered by her teachers and isolated by her fellow students. Once the headmistress Wilcox discovers that Mathilda's father has disappeared and the fees have not been payed, Mr. Ellin is called in to investigate. When backg I've already read the The Professor a while back, I skipped straight to Emma, which actually two chapters of an unfinished novel that the author started before her death. Matilda Fitzgibbon arrives at an expensive private school and, because of her status as a heiress, she is flattered by her teachers and isolated by her fellow students. Once the headmistress Wilcox discovers that Mathilda's father has disappeared and the fees have not been payed, Mr. Ellin is called in to investigate. When background checks are made, it is discovered that the Fitzgibbon does not exist and never has. 'Matilda Fitzgibbon' is a fake-heiress, so what is to be done?! It's a great start and it's a shame the author couldn't finish it. Two authors have tried to finish it so maybe I'll give one of them a go (Emma, 1980 / Emma Brown, 2003).

    I was surprised how much I enjoyed this first novel by Charlotte Bronte... You can see some elements of 'Jane Eyre' in the characters of Frances Henri and Yorke Hunsden - I did not find the character of William Crimsworth quite so engaging. I was surprised too by the political and feminist statements inherent particularly in the dialogue of Frances Henri. I was surprised how much I enjoyed this first novel by Charlotte Bronte...
