Hailed as Charlotte Brontë's finest novel by Virginia Woolf, Villette is the timeless semi-autobiographical tale of Lucy Snowe. Left with no family and no money, Lucy goes against her own timid nature and travels to the small city of Villette, France, where she becomes a school teacher in Madame Beck's school for girls. During her stay, she falls in love - twice - and discovers an independent, inner strength rarely seen in women of her time. Download and start listening now!

    " I have a real problem rating some books that I appreciate without necessarily enjoying. Villette falls into this category. Bronte makes good and innovative use of a heroine, who, in suppressing her feelings, becomes an unreliable narrator. As a character study of determination in the face of loneliness and disappointment the novel works; as a description of the vulnerability of a single working woman in a nineteenth century foreign environment, it is without doubt, very accurate. As a well-structured dramatic novel with engaging characters and interesting plot, it falls down in my eyes. "

    " I'm reading this on my Kindle along with a few other books. I like this book because of all the French language in it, but sometimes the descriptions are overly ornate and long and frankly boring. Overall it is a good read, teehee. "

    " I thought this book started out slow and then picked up about halfway through the book. I loved the second half of the book. I loved the characters and the surprises. A lovely book. Interesting ending. "

    " Readers of Jane Eyre might prefer the former to this book. Villette has some interesting characters and a lot of dialogue in French. The text sometimes feels rambling and meandering in plot. I enjoyed this book, but it made me want to read Jane Eyre again. "
