“I really loved Villette - more so than Jane Eyre I think.” Maggie

“This may be my favourite book by the Brontë sisters . . . I really enjoyed the book, and am surprised to see that it isn’t nearly as popular as Jane Eyre, because Charlotte far surpasses her skills as an author and storyteller in this novel” Jules’ Book Reviews

“Lucy is an introverted, isolated, sarcastic heroine; she is extremely practical but not good at showing emotion. In fact, I think she’d rather just pretend she doesn’t have them. In addition, she mocks her “friends” mercilessly. All told, I found her completely relatable, even though she’s not the classical example of a perfect heroine. The back of the book promises two relationships: one with a doctor who frequents the pensione and the other with an irascible, emotional teacher.” A Girl Walks Into A Bookstore blog

“With neither friends nor family, Lucy Snowe sets sail from England to find employment in a girls' boarding school in the town of Villette. There she struggles to retain her self-possession in face of unruly pupils, an initially suspicious headmaster and her complex feelings, first for the school's English doctor and then for a dictatorial professor.” The Guardian

VILLETTE is the story of Lucy Snowe, Charlotte Brontë’s unique and vivid heroine. Read one of the greatest novels of all time in a beautifully presented edition specially designed for kindle. This is a book by the author of Jane Eyre which will stay with you forever.
