Long overshadowed by Jane Eyre, Villette is widely admired as one of Charlotte Bronte's finest works. This story of a young teacher at a girl's school in the city of Villette is a particular challenge for the young reader, for it requires maturity of vision, a fine narrative sense - and a command of French! Mandy Weston, a newcomer to Naxos AudioBooks, tells the story magnificently. Download and start listening now!

    " After reading Jane Eyre, I was excited to read another book by Charlotte Bronte. I did not enjoy this book as much as Jane Eyre. It was much more difficult for me to relate to Lucy Snowe, and I just didn't like her as much :) "

    " Oh my goodness, this book took me 3 full years to get into, but once I did I couldn't put it down. Charlotte Bronte truly knows how to write a long, scripted book! I loved how she wrote a lot of French, too, so I could test my knowledge of the language. :) Despite the slow build, it still was a great book. "

    " I am a sucker for 19th century female writers, and this book does not disappoint. I felt lonely reading this book. Lucy Snowe is bereft and determined to make her own way. I cheered for her as she grappled with her various feelings, hoping she would ultimately find a person in whom she could rest yet still be her independent self. It doesn't get going right away. In fact, it takes about 100 pages to crank up, but it is worth the effort. "

    " Took forever. We really liked it (google translate and me). Lots of french. I hated it at some points because of the really slow moving story, but I loved the conclusion. "
