William Crimsworth escapes the brutal employment of his brother in a Yorkshire mill town, changes profession and takes a position as tutor in a boys' school in Brussels.

The authoress is unusually frank, for the time, in her scrutiny of the relationship between the teacher and the domineering headmistress of the adjoining girls' school, Zoraide Reuter.

Crimsworth manages to avoid the older woman's manipulation and begins a relationship with a poor pupil/teacher only to have these advances briefly frustrated by the headmistress' jealousy and dislike of the younger woman.The Professor is as good as I can write; it contains more pith, more substance, and more reality, in my judgement!Charlotte Bronte.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen Graham | 2/6/2014

    " It was a painful struggle for me to slog through this novel not because it was extremely boring but for disagreeable main character. Also I found the composition awkward in some degree. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lara | 2/6/2014

    " I think the only reason I read it was because it was written by Charlotte Bronte. I think it was her first novel but it's decent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leann | 2/4/2014

    " Not her best, but it's her first. give the girl a break. "

    " Bored, didn't care about him or her. Pity. "

Through help from an unexpected friend he finds himself in Belgium at a boarding school teaching English. There he meets his love, and both venture to make a better living for them selves. I love the story. "

    " I love Charlotte Bronte and this is a wonderful read (even if some of it I didn't understand as it was French lol). The glimpses of her Jane Eyre characters come through and as that is my favourite novel it makes me like this even more. Just a gorgeous read. Highly recommended! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Naomi | 1/12/2014

    " Def. not my favorite by CB, who is in my top 5 of favorite authors. I don't know if this came before or after Jane Eyre, but it def. had that feeling to it without rising to its' greatness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 11/28/2013

    " This book was short and oh so sweet! I loved every page! Charlotte Bronte is wonderful. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer Jaeger | 7/26/2013

    " Jane Eyre is my all-time favorite book, so I was excited to read The Professor. I just couldn't, no matter how hard I tried, make myself like the main character. He's rude, condescending, and just plain boring. I forced myself to finish reading it, but can't say I really enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steph Ebel | 6/16/2013

    " I ended getting wrapped up into the story and then felt the end left me hanging. I enjoyed her descriptions of people and experiences and her usage of the Bible and gods name Jehovah. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtru | 5/13/2013

    " This book was just ok but it was nice to brush up on my French reading comprehension skills. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenay | 1/13/2013

    " Sweet, provoking, suspenseful, full of ordinary elegance And joy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sherwood Smith | 1/6/2013

    " Charlotte's practice novel, as she channels her obsession with her married professor, and while she's at it, slangs Catholics and various ethnicities. Phew! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 GG | 10/19/2012

    " Bronte's first novel, and it showed. Heavy-handed and plodding/meandering. I wonder how anyone without a solid understanding of French would be able to get through the book without losing the plot (such as it was...) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 10/4/2012

    " I always liked this one the best out of all the novels by the Bronte sisters. Jane Eyre I never thought was as good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bakeshow | 9/15/2012

    " I got so bored I quit. Maybe I should have read this before Villette... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynne - The Book Squirrel | 7/3/2012

    " I loved this book! I read Jane Eyre first as a 9 year old and have always loved it but this was really good if not slightly better! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily Lonsdale | 8/2/2011

    " I enjoyed this book but not very much seemed to happen it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dana | 3/9/2011

    " This book was just blah. Too much untranslated French, a predictable, boring plot... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vickie | 2/4/2011

    " Just ok. Understand why it wasn't so famous. "
