Format: Hardcover
Agnes Grey did not measure up to Emily's or Charlotte's work. It was just too fluffy. Not enough substance. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, however, was every bit up to the level of her sisters' work and I recommend this volume and give it four stars based on the strength of TTOWH.

I red The Tenant of Wildfell Hall a couple years ago and have some great memories doing it. (Haven't read Agnes Grey, do I am not reviewing on that portion of this purchase). It's not nearly as great as Charlotte's Jane Eyre or Emily's Wuthering Heights, but Anne still manages to make the book quite entertaining. I didn't find it slow going at all. And on a humorous note, if you haven't been married, The Tenant may make you think twice!

Format: Hardcover
these two novels were an unexpected joy. both were crackling page turners, and for the record, i read them the fastest of all the novels by the bronte sisters. maybe they're not quite so full of 'literary merit' as the others, i don't know. but they're just so much damn fun to read. despite the archaic language to the modern ear, anne somehow manages to involve you constantly in the dilemma of her heroines, in 'agnes grey' the plainest of plain janes, thwarted at every turn from the man she loves, by her rich, charming, beautiful, but vainglorious pupil. in 'tenant of wildfell hall,' a smokingly beautiful woman lies trapped in a loveless marriage, and remains powerless to undo the mistake and remarry when the right man comes along.

interesting. considering the two stories together, wildfell hall almost seems as if the adversary in 'agnes grey', a stunningly beautiful woman who makes an ill chosen match after being swept off her feet, got her part of the story retold from her point of view. clearly the bronte sisters identify with their plain introverted, thoughtful governess heroines, never with such beautiful creatures as helen graham. but perhaps anne is considering it's not just people like herself, not just the plain but inwardly worthy poor governess who deserve god's mercy and the reader's sympathy. perhaps after creating agnes's nemesis rosalie in agnes grey, she bethought herself a bit and chose not to leave her in such a hell. should one mistake in judgement damn a girl for life? perhaps anne realized beautiful foolish women who show incredible lack of judgement choosing a rotten husband, need god's mercy too. of course rosalie has none of the virtues of helen, but the flip around of situation seems to me to be an interesting connection between the two stories.
