Publisher's Summary

In The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Anne Bronte created a strong, modern heroine who challenged the prevailing morals and politics of the Victorian era.

When Helen Graham shut her bedroom door on her abusive, drunken husband, it was a door-slam heard around the world. Escaping to Wildfell Hall after a loveless marriage, Helen, our mysterious tenant, lives in quiet seclusion, while her reclusive nature quickly becomes the subject of local gossip.

Gilbert Markham, a young farmer, becomes intrigued with Ms. Graham and soon discovers the shocking secrets of her dark past.

    "Beautiful"

    What a treat! The narrators are perfectly matched to the material, and the material itself is shot through with love and sunlight. Not to say there's no suffering: the novel contains a gripping account of a relationship gone horribly wrong, and of the ravages of alcohol and adultery. But for all that, it doesn't have the tinge of gothic horror that marks other works by members of the Brontë family. If there's a flaw, it's that the male narrator, Gilbert Markham, isn't half as mature as he seems to think he is. He's right when he says he doesn't deserve to be happy. But Helen Huntingdon DOES deserve it. She is a strong, determined woman, an utter contrast to the stereotypical Victorian heroine, and her story is a delight to hear.

    "Long, But Not Disappointing"

    Having read some very disappointingly-ended stories by the Brontes, I was a bit leery of this long tome. I can see this as a drawn-out set of serially stories full enough of angst for any lonely soul. For myself, the narrator was better to listen to at 1.15 speed rather than the slower original. He has a good voice, but seemed a bit effete in the emphases he used in each sentence. Bronte is attempting to write from a male point of view but tends to give her protagonist a clearly female set of reactions. It is still entertaining if you can wade through all this.

    "Had to stop!"

    As much as I love the Bronte's- too much filler- I was totally immersed for the entire first quarter- after that it becomes so wordy and goes on so long it becomes extremely frustrating, I hope it ends well but I could not continue .

    "My favorite Brontë book so far"

    This story about a very strong, somewhat self-righteous woman is a sparkling gem. Interesting characters.

    "Unbelievably tedious and slow. Absurdly wordy"

    Teenage me would have probably loved this book. Now I see that 5 sentences were used when only one was needed. Ridiculously flowery and romantic for a rather dull book. whiny.

    "Great read, great narration"

    I enjoyed this novel - so well written, of course! The audio was very good. I like the tone of both readers. I also like that you have used two readers for the main characters.
