love story with twists & turns

(4 Sterne)

very good job done by the readers. but reader/listener beware, once you get to the section with lucy in the school - there is A LOT of french and it is not translated. you kind of have to just try to figure out what was said by the things that happen before and after. i roughly understand what happened around the french conversations, but i would have like knowing exactly what was said. this story seems predictable at points but there are twists and turns in every chapter, even the last. a lot is discussed about roman Catholics and protestants. and some long emotional drawn out speeches. but overall a good read, likely just the ladies will enjoy it. though there is a haunting nun subplot :-D

(5 Sterne)

Villette is a wonderful book. I love Jane Eyre first and foremost but this book is interesting and beautifully written. There are some parts that get a little boring not because of bad writing but just so much description. The ending leaves a little to be desired. Bronte lets you almost pick the ending. I do recommend this book. There is some French which you can gloss over or, in my case, I used Google translate.

I don't speak French

(4 Sterne)

Readers did wonderfully. I don't speak French so I was bored and missed a lot of the story at times. The readers kept me at this book with how well they acted it out but other than that not a favorite story

(5 Sterne)

Incredible descriptions and quotes throughout this book. The main reader is exceptional, and all the other readers are very good. The story has rounded, interesting characters that invite you to feel their plights and cheer on those who are deserving.

There can be no other Lucy Snowe. What a wonderful story and a wonderful reading. This may be Charlotte Bronte's best book.

wow, we'll now I know...

(2,5 Sterne)

...now I know that if it is a happy light hearted story I want, never listen to Charlotte.

Unhappy Ending...

(5 Sterne)

Beautifully read, excellent job. The ending was too tragic for my tastes, but now I know...!
