    " Very, very interesting. I don't love it instantly like Jane Eyre, but it might be because I don't understand some parts (especially the French). I might reread it. "

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this slow but psychologically rich novel. I kept thinking that if Jane Eyre was comparable to Pride and Prejudice in maturity and depth, than Villette is much more in line with Persuasion. The narrator is rather unreliable, despite being written in the first person. It has comedy, adventure, romance of a sort, and a heroine that while I didn't necessarily always agree with, I do deeply admire her integrity. "

    " I listened to this book on CD in my car over several weeks, if not months, and, dear reader, by the end I was thinking Charlotte Bronte was neck and neck w/ Charles Maturin, author of my least favorite novel Melmoth the Wanderer, for tiresomeness. I grew weary. Best parts were hearing the reader speak the untranslated French passages, although I don't speak French. "

    " I just pulled this off the shelf at my in laws. I love Jane Eyre, and I might love Villette's Lucy Snowe even more. She is such a keen observer of character. Her esteem evolving as she learns more of her acquaintances. And as she tells you what she sees, and feels, you begin to see her and feel for her. I spent the whole day thinking about the last two paragraphs of the book. I think I will still be thinking about them next week, maybe even next year. Vive! Lucie Snowe! "
