My wife loves reading and so over the last few years I've been building up a classic collection for her. The Wordsworth series of hardback books match well together and so are good left on the shelf too ;-)

It is uneccessary for me to review the individual novels of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte as they are all masterpieces. This is a short approval of the hardback itself of which I am highly satisfied. The cover is creative and attractive; the novels are placed in order of Author and of the year of publication.
Unfortunately this is not the kind of book you'd bring on a trip or a holiday as it is too big and heavy. But it certainly decorates any bookshelf on whick it sits ready to opened and enjoyed.

This is a lovely collection! It begins with a very revealing biographical notice, written by Charlotte on September 19th 1850. The novels themselves vary in quality, but they are all beatifully written and give a great insight into the lives of these highly intelligent sisters. Anne's "Agnes Grey" is pretty much her own biography and illustrates the trials and tribulations of a 19th century governess. The Tennant of Wildfell Hall is a much darker affair, and despite Charlotte's view that "the choice of subject was an entire mistake" I found it truly engaging! Emily's "Wuthering Heights" is a complete one-off, and is remarkable for an "unlearned" country girl with no "worldly wisdom". We all know the story, and many have suggested that Heathcliffe was indeed Emily's alter-ego. Reading her poems gives a bit more insight into her nature. She was the fiery sibling - Anne the mild one! I have to say that "Jane Eyre" gave me the most pleasure. Here you have the essential combination of a great story written in florid, beautiful writing that shows Charlotte's command of language was second to none. "Villette" was a bit of a disappointment, storywise, but I never ever gave it up, due to her wonderfully descriptive writing. A highly recommended collection!

I was ecstatic to receive this book, as a small consolation for breaking my iPod (way saddening). I expected a beautiful and intricate binding of all my favourite novels, and whilst it wasn't everything I expected, it's really not all that bad. It's about the same size as a normal book -- I'm not talking pages, here -- and, really, it's not that heavy. I don't understand all this nonsense about it being 'too heavy to take on the train' etc, because I found it simple enough. It's not light, sure, but you're hardly carrying around all hardback editions of the bible. It's barely anything; man up and stop being such a princess!
Also, be careful of the surfaces you place this book on because all sorts of crap got stuck to the cover of mine.
Overall, it's a lovely book: upon arrival I noticed my pages were a little frayed the way pages do when they've been touched by water. I can't comprehend why this is; maybe I'm just being picky.
But these are small things in comparison with everything you're gaining: yes, Shirley isn't there, but it's £1.99 on Amazon. Buy it separately and stop being such a pussy. I love this book and it will withstand all episodes of boredom, lack of creativity and inspiration, etc. I love it. I don't regret the price I paid.

Thoroughly recommend.
