Publisher's Summary

Long overshadowed by Jane Eyre, Villette is widely admired as one of Charlotte Bronte's finest works. This story of a young teacher at a girlâ¿¿s school in the city of Villette is a particular challenge for the young reader, for it requires maturity of vision, a fine narrative sense - and a command of French! Mandy Weston, a newcomer to Naxos AudioBooks, tells the story magnificently.

Excellent reading

This is my favourite audiobook! Of course because of Charlotte Bronte's novel, but the reading of Mandy Weston makes it so much more felt. Lucy Snow's musings, restraints are thouroughly full of sense. Other characters are given their own personality. The chemistry between the personages are sparkling. I am hearing this one over and over again.

Wonderfully read

I grew impatient at times, but there are some lovely bits to this book and it really is fantastically well read. Mandy Weston somehow manages to make Lucy Snowe a warmer, fuller character yet without betraying the spirit of the text. I'm not sure about giving the characters French accents when their words are translated, but I suppose it was an easy way to distinguish characters.
