I have read all of Charlotte Brontes books and have read Wuthering Heights by Emily, but I had never read anything by Anne. I had the the chance to visit The child home of the Bronte siblings when I was in the UK last year and bought this book and literally devoured it. I loved the story, the characterizations, the symbolism, biblical references, etc. I highly recommend it. I gave it as a gift to a good friend and she couldn't put it down, either.

Overwhelming excellence in literature. Bronte Sisters are the top of the line authors, literist, novelist, etc ... Each are distinct in their own writing talents, yet each paints a picture with their words like no other. This is great literature at its best!

The correct title of the book, as seen even on the photo of it for this edition is The Bronte Sisters Complete Novels Illustrated. It is a collection of the works of Emily, Anne and Charlotte Bronte. The only "work" missing is Charlotte Bronte's Emma. This is because she wrote only two chapters of the work before her death. The rest was finished posthumously by another author.

The Bronte Sisters Complete Novels Illustrated is a joy in that it has all of the sister's works together in one place. I

This is a wonderful collection - particularly if you have a Kindle. I have not read *every* novel in here yet, but most of them now that they're all in one place.

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is a very early novel, exploring Victorian notions of marriage, morality, and duty.

The Professor is also an early novel, exploring issues of industry, self-determination, and marriage as partnership (not very romantic!)

“She had her own opinions on every subject, and kept steadily to them--very tiresome opinions they often were; as she was always thinking of what was right and what was wrong, and had a strange reverence for matters connected with religion, and an unaccountable liking to good people.” 2 likes
“The human heart is like india-rubber; a little swells it, but a great deal will not burst it. If "little more than nothing will disturb it, little less than all things will suffice" to break it. As in the outer members of our frame, there is a vital power inherent in itself that strengthens it against external violence. Every blow that shakes it will serve to harden it against a future stroke; as constant labour thickens the skin of the hand, and strengthens its muscles instead of wasting them away: so that a day of arduous toil, that might excoriate a lady's palm, would make no sensible impression on that of a hardy ploughman.” 2 likes
