    1. Shirley **** davvero una bella lettura. I protagonisti vengono introdotti lentamente, a romanzo già avviato e questo tiene alta l'attenzione del lettore, lettore che viene chiamato spesso in causa direttamente dalla voce narrante.Villette *** non mi ha convinta al 100%, molto lento in alcune parti, molti i riferimenti religiosi. Lucy mi ha dato l'idea di essere una protagonista "passiva", semplice spettatrice degli eventi, sempre restia a prendere una posizione concreta. E' stata comunque una t [...]

    2. This is totally not the sort of book I would have picked up for myself, but was given it as a gift and I ended up being very pleasantly surprised. A good-for-me change of pace from my typical YA books!! Definitely liked Anne's poems best of the 3 sisters (and not just for her brevity)- was not a big fan of Charlotte's. There were several poems where I thought, wow these girls are eloquent AND sassy! "Stars," "Music on Christmas Morning," "The Doubter's Prayer" and "Lines Composed in a Wood on a [...]

    3. Some excellent poetry from all the sisters, but I still think Anne's keen insight and honest narratives are much more engaging than those of her siblings. She truly is the best of the Brontes.

    4. This is a wonderful collection - particularly if you have a Kindle. I have not read *every* novel in here yet, but most of them now that they're all in one place.The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is a very early novel, exploring Victorian notions of marriage, morality, and duty.The Professor is also an early novel, exploring issues of industry, self-determination, and marriage as partnership (not very romantic!)

    5. I have read all of Charlotte Brontes books and have read Wuthering Heights by Emily, but I had never read anything by Anne. I had the the chance to visit The child home of the Bronte siblings when I was in the UK last year and bought this book and literally devoured it. I loved the story, the characterizations, the symbolism, biblical references, etc. I highly recommend it. I gave it as a gift to a good friend and she couldn't put it down, either.

    6. Currently re-reading Jane Eyre, my fave book of all. I always know fall has arrived when I start reading Jane Eyre again

    7. Excellent collection of all the works published by the sisters. I came across the Bronte Sisters through Jane Eyer on Prime. I had long been a fan of Jane Austin, and think Charlotte Bronte came up as a suggested author. Well, what a treat that turned out to be! These women were very much pioneers in asserting themselves into a prohibited publishing world. Like Austin, they bring a fresh touch to novels and also help one to understand the plight of women in that age and society in general. By t [...]

    8. They beckoned to be re, reread. Read again. You cannot tell when one starts and the other ends as far as writer. How talented they were.

    9. Jane Eyre:- About a young girl with many misfortunes but a spirit of steel, who does not give up either hope or rectitude under the direst of circumstances, and grows up to be one of the most beloved heroines of English literature. Villette: -The Professor:- Wuthering Heights:- For many this epitomises a love story, as love really is. One may decide to be prudent, to marry well and suitably, but when your heart is given it will not follow the diktats of mind and society, however much one reigns [...]

    10. The correct title of the book, as seen even on the photo of it for this edition is The Bronte Sisters Complete Novels Illustrated. It is a collection of the works of Emily, Anne and Charlotte Bronte. The only "work" missing is Charlotte Bronte's Emma. This is because she wrote only two chapters of the work before her death. The rest was finished posthumously by another author.The Bronte Sisters Complete Novels Illustrated is a joy in that it has all of the sister's works together in one place. I [...]

    11. It's very interesting observing the personalities of the Bronte sisters via their poetry. It's reflected in their poetry that each one of them loved their home on the moors, was very spiritual, loved literature, & was a great writer. They were all so much all of these things that at times they seemed one & the same! However, you get a good glimpse of their differences as well. Emily seemed to be the natural poet - raw, close to home with her subject matter, so aware of the connection of [...]

    12. 2.5* (I rated every poem then took the average! Yes I did!)So in general, Anne writes about Nature, Emily writes about Death and Charlotte writes about all sorts! That's a massive generalization btw!Overall, I preferred Emily & Anne's style of writing to Charlotte's, but my favourites include poems written by all three of them. Some of my favourites: 'Faith and Despondency' (Emily), 'Stars' (Emily), 'A Death Scene' (Emily), 'If This Be All' (Anne) and 'Life' (Charlotte). I do much prefer the [...]

    14. Not a shade on their novels, unfortunately. Many of the selected poems in this volume are too similar to one another, there is only a small pool of themes, and they do not touch on them with talent displayed in their novels.

    15. I can see why Agnes Grey doesn't roll off one's tongue when one speaks of the Bronte's. The novel was good and well-written for the most part, but the plot and characters seem a bit prosaic in light of the other great masterpieces by the Brontes.

    16. I thoroughly enjoyed this collection and am definitely interested in reading more of the Bronte's poetry.

    17. Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre are still my favorites and I have separate editions of them, but this compilation is a welcome introduction to a remarkable family.
