review 1: This book vividly brought to life the personalities and eccentricities of the Bronte sisters.... Charlotte, Emily, and Anne... their brother Branwell... and their oddly austere father, Patrick Bronte.... detailing their remote life of near poverty in the town of Haworth, located in Northern Yorkshire, England.As a lover of "Jane Eyre" (written by Charlotte) and "Wuthering Heights" (written by Emily), this book delighted me. Charlotte was a very quiet and demure woman, but inside, she smoldered with passion and very deep intelligence and wit. Her quiet life in Haworth is juxtaposed against the notoriety of her first book, Jane Eyre, written under the pseudonym "Currer Bell," and the admiration it attained among literary circles in London. (and the lay reader throughout Engl... moreand as well. She, or "that naughty Currer Bell," caused a sensation!) Though Charlotte's life was short, she managed to outlive all of her siblings, and her impact on Literature was eternal.
review 2: I had the audiobook of this (it's the only way I can partake in literature at the moment, because I work 7 days a week) and it was a total gem. Reading the Brontë sisters in high school really helped cement my love for reading, so getting to know more about their lives and still getting to hear a really great story at the same time, was thoroughly enjoyable. I was impressed by that narrator's ability to make almost every characters' voice distinguishable from the rest. less
