Probably the most shocking of the Brontës' novels, this novel had an instant and phenomenal success and is widely considered to be one of the first sustained feminist novels. A mysterious widow, Mrs. Helen Graham, arrives at Wildfell Hall, a nearby old mansion. A source of curiosity for the small community, the reticent Helen and her young son Arthur are slowly drawn into the social circles of the village.

    " Very enjoyable! I wanted to give Gilbert a whack every once in a while, but I think Anne did an excellent job chronicling a very difficult situation. "

    " Astonishing in the way it deals with alcoholism, dissipation and marital abuse. The narrative form can be a little clunky but this is deeply underrated. "

    " A true feminist story. It's told from two characters' perspectives, and I think any woman would feel connected to "the tennant" - Helen. The ending wasn't totally satisfactory for me, simply because we get to know Helen first-hand in the middle of the book, but in the end we really don't hear anything from her perspective anymore. Overall though it's a very enjoyable, thought-provoking read, with memorable characters. "

    " Anne is the least 'dark, Gothic' author of the three Brontes, if this book is any indication. I plan to read her other novels also, because I enjoyed this one so much. And now I know why it is a favorite with Karen. ; ) "

    " I would say more like 3.5 stars. It is a very interesting exercise to read all 3 Bronte sisters back-to-back because they all write SO differently. Anne's prose is definitely the most austere and straightforward... nothing compared to Charlotte's lyricism. This book actually reminded me more of an Austen than of a Bronte. It's a very social novel with many characters, at times they were hard to keep track of. There is also an undercurrent of humor(when Gilbert whacks Mr. Lawrence with his whip!), which you don't find in other Bronte novels. The subject matter was very revolutionary for it's time, and Anne took a lot of flack for this book's portrayal of marriage, courtship, alcoholism, etc. One thing I had a problem with was the fact that none of the characters are likeable. Flawed characters are one thing, but Helen was so preachy I almost couldn't take it after awhile. But all in all its a good book, good ending, and I'm glad I read it. "

    " Loved the movie, loved the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ada | 2/5/2014

    " I do give this book 5 stars in the sense of what it meant for women and their rights. At times I find descriptions of marriage repulsive but I suppose that shows a good writer: otherwise I wouldn't be moved like that. All together I do find it the hardest book to read compared to her sisters' 'Wuthering Heights' and 'Jane Eyre'. But that is probably just me. "

    " My favorite Bronte book after WUTHERING HEIGHTS. I still wonder why all the Bronte sisters seem to have been fascinated by the same type of man: Rochester, Heathcliff: they're all the same dark, brooding, not very nice guy. You wonder what their father was like. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynda | 1/7/2014

    " About half way and so far I'm liking the bad guy, Arthur, more than the heroine, Helen. "

    " Apparently, this won't be anymore shocking as it did then. I lf only 50 Shades of Grey was published in the 19th Century. Those ladies would crap their pants. Ah wait, they don't wear pants then. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra Nixon | 6/11/2013

    " I love the language in this book, did people really talk so properly back then? Ah, if only we could use half of the proper words they used back then. This book was a bit slow at times but rewarding. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth O'Callahan | 5/13/2013

    " The formatting of this book really dulled it down a lot, but she was certainly promising. "

    " interesting story the movie is as good as the book and the time investment better with the movie "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelby | 4/18/2013

    " Interesting concept and narrative format, but I didn't find the characters or their relationships (i.e. Helen & Mr. Huntington or Mr. Markham) very believable. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Annabutler26 | 12/16/2012

    " I apologise to any fans of this book, but I was bored to tears by the end! Helen just annoyed me with her self-righteousness and I was completed baffled as to why anyone would want to marry her! Good luck to Markham I say! "

    " Engrossing. =) All time favourite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beka | 11/6/2012

    " This story is moving and very emotional. I don't suggest reading it if you're over-sympathetic as you could be crying buckets by the end. "
