it was amazing
bookshelves: classics
Recommended for: classics lovers

Again, I am very impressed with the style and proficiency of writing the youngest Bronte sister has. I really blazed through this book, whereas it took me a lot longer to read Villette (despite its being a much longer book, the time spent reading was disproportionate). I was intrigued by the article by Charlotte Bronte at the end of the book, where she reviews the life and works of her two younger sister, Emily and Anne. She really didn't understand Anne or her writing much at all. She had very little good to say about 'Tenant of Wildfell Hall' or 'Agnes Grey,' where these are thus far my favorite Bronte works. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys classics or historical fiction; however, it is written in quite the progressive style for its period, so a contemporary fiction lover would appreciate this just as much as a classics lover. huzzah!
