The story of Villette is told in flashback by Lucy Snowe, who tells of the trials of her young self-first in England, and then in Belgium. Charlotte Bronte does not paint a romantic picture of an unsupported woman's life - her heroine has to endure straitened circumstances, insecurity and humiliation. However, despite everything that happens to her, Lucy is a warm and courageous character who makes the most of the opportunities that occur. The love and fulfilment which are readily available to her younger, prettier and richer charges are not quite outside her reach, but it is clear to the reader that for her to achieve them cannot be easy.

    " It was a good book, but sad. Not a "feel good" read. "

    " The kind of book that makes you wish you'd read it in college where you had access to a professor and a library full of literary criticism. More interesting than entertaining, I would recommend this to people who love Jane Eyre or who are interested in literary studies. A working knowledge of French would be helpful - a small but significant part of the book is in untranslated French. In the week or so since I've read the book, I've thought about it a dozen times, and each time I get something new from the thoughts - it's that kind of book - not easy, quite strange, and totally gripping.
