4.0 out of 5 stars The Life of Charlotte Bronte (Penguin Classics), 5 May 2003
As per the other reviews on here, this book is an essential read if you want to know the full life and times of the Bronte's.
However, one thing i will say, i found it annoying that some of the names of people mentioned in the book had their names blanked out to protect them as they might still be living, which after this amount of time is very doubtful.
And totally my ignorance is that I don’t speak French, so it meant skipping a few pages every now and then as some of the letters Charlotte had written were in French.
The pace of the book is a little uneven but this may be down to the events, still Definatly a good read.
