I love this book and the heartwarming sadness that goes with it. To all the people worried about the french, I got one with translations in the back. I love how this book is typical for 19th century writing but also can easily change your opinion on characters. I love how even though I couldn’t relate to Lucy Snowe, I could understand what she was going through. In the last few chapters I really cried...that means a lot coming from me.

This title was completely unknown to me which was the reason I chose to read it and I found it a bit tedious. Typical of 19th century writing the prose is flowery and a little boring. Also, one needs at least basic French to understand the dialogue. Pass on this book unless you're doing a special study of The Brontes.

I loved this book but was annoyed at the amount of French in it. I had to keep switching between the book and the translator, copying and pasting. It would be great if iBooks had a translate feature within the app like it does for define. Still, I would definitely recommend if you are a fan of the Bronte sisters or Jane Austen. It is a very long book, so make sure you have plenty of time on the horizon to read it.

This is without a doubt my favorite book. The characters and the plot are both interesting. It's very romantic and a bit sad.

Great story, bit long winded at times, really let down by a terrible ending. If I had known it was so short and abrupt, I may not have bothered to start it!.

This book is worth reading, but you need to be patient with it. C.B is too wordy in places and the excessive French is hard work at times. However, the characters are well formed and the plot interesting. I was sad at the end for its lack of detail.

About Charlotte Brontë Wiki

Charlotte Brontë (, commonly ; 21 April 1816 – 31 March 1855) was an English novelist and poet, the eldest of the three Brontë sisters who survived into adulthood and whose novels became classics of English literature. She enlisted in school at Roe Head in January 1831, aged 14 years. She left the year after to teach her sisters, Emily and Anne, at home, returning in 1835 as a governess. In 1839, she undertook the role of governess for the Sidgwick family, but left after a few months to return to Haworth, where the sisters opened a school, but failed to attract pupils. Instead, they turned to writing and they each first published in 1846 under the pseudonyms of Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. Although her first novel, The Professor, was rejected by publishers, her second novel, Jane Eyre, was published in 1847. The sisters admitted to their Bell pseudonyms in 1848, and by the following year were celebrated in London literary circles. Charlotte Brontë was the last to die of all her si...
