  I just finished reading Emma. I really want to discuss it! I have devoured all her novels except Persuasion. Anyone?
By the way, why this forum is so dead?

I read most of her books and love them! My favorite is Pride and Prejudice, but I also like Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park and Emma. I haven't finished Persuasion or Sense and Sensibility yet.

Emma is my most fav amongst Jane Austen books as opposed to pride and prejudice which is more popular (thanks to Mr Darcy)
and Sense and Sensibility is one another book which i dig into.

  Northanger Abbey ! Isn't that book amazing. It made me want to read Udolpho. 
    You should read Emma. It's really a masterpiece, and the characters feel so real with flaws and all, especially the heroine emma herself. And the plot twist in the end...oh! They say the book doesn't have much action compared to P&P, and may be that's true, but I wasn't for a second bored. But see how you like it. Do read it  :)

     Though I loved Emma, my fav would always be P&P. It was the first ever novel I read, and fell in love with  the genre and with reading. I have even read her letters :P
        Have you watched the movie 'Becoming Jane'?  I read that the character Darcy is inspired from Tom Lefroy ( The boy she loved in her twenties )
