The plot is a little linear and predictable but a there is a quiet anger throughout the book over the contempt and ill-treatment afforded at that time to governesses who were often very well-educated young women (someone speaking three languages today would be strongly sought after) but with lowly social status. For me, Agnes Grey is a deeply empathetic delight.
Whilst it is a nice book, and you wont regret reading it over the course of the couple of evenings it will take, it reads more like Anne Bronte's diary than a novel, it's little more than a series of events with a token romance attached to make it into a novel. It also lacks the character depth and emotion that you can find in the works of Emily and Charlotte Bronte. But nevertheless, I would still reccommend this, although dont expect anything more than a 'nice' story.
