Agnes Grey | [Anne Brontë]

Agnes Grey

Drawing on her own experiences, Anne Brontë wrote her first novel out of an urgent need to inform her contemporaries about the desperate position of unmarried, educated women driven to take up the only "respectable" career open to them - that of a governess. Struggling with the monstrous Bloomfield children and then disdained in the superior Murray household, Agnes tells a story that is a compelling inside view of Victorian chauvinism and ruthless materialism.

    "Wonderful book, but missing pages"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I am giving this recording 1-star overall simply because it ends before the book is finished. Practically mid-sentence the recording cuts off, leaving the last 3 pages or so unread -- pages which are critical to the story! I checked the playing time carefully, and it agrees to the second with the total time for this recording as indicated on the audible site, so it is not just a fluke of my computer or a mistake in my downloading.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Except for the clipped ending, I enjoyed the book very much. It has the feel of a 'first novel,' being somewhat undeveloped. But I was much impressed by Anne Bronte's writing, and the story is engaging.

    Story
    "Jolly good read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    An old fashioned story but beautifully written and wonderfully read. Agnes is such a sensible young woman in a world of vain, unhappy creatures, you can't help but cheer at her decisions.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Agnes Grey?

    The ending, though predictable, was perfect.


    What about Emilia Fox’s performance did you like?

    Emilia's very proper English accent made the main character come alive. I'm sure Agnes would sound just like this.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Agnes Grey - A proper heroine.

    "Incomplete file."

    The end four minutes appear to be missing and the listener is left with an abrupt end.

    "Disappointing Ending"

    This is a fine reading, somewhat marred because the last page is missing and the listener is left wondering whether she did or not.
