The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

(4.4 stars; 25 reviews)

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, the second and final novel by Anne Brontë, is concerned with the story of a woman who leaves her abusive, dissolute husband, and who must then support herself and her young son. Originally published in June of 1848, it challenged the prevailing morals of the time; a critic went so far as to pronounce it "utterly unfit to be put into the hands of girls." It is considered to be one of the first feminist novels. (Summary from Wikipedia)

Reviews

Very Poor Reading of a Good Romance

(3 stars)

This is a very good book for those of us who like this genre, but there are many, many chapters that are impossible to even understand (so I read those online) because of the poor English of one of the foreign readers. If the book had been read by an articulate reader(s), I would have ranked it 4 or 5.

Anne Bronte, she has been overlooked! I just wish that people who are not English speakers born would not be able to read these books. What is their purpose? There are many other ways for them to practice their English pronunciation. Listeners are looking so forward to hearing these books. Why are they allowed to ruin the experience?

(4 stars)

Loved the story but agree with the other reviews regarding the reader with the very heavy accent. She was difficult understand and I had to really concentrate on listening to her instead of relaxing and passively listening.

sometimes hard to understand

(3.5 stars)

I enjoyed this story but one of the readers was hard to understand.
