Charlotte (and Shirley!) would have loved Kindle,
This review is from: Shirley (FLT edition) (Charlotte Bronte - FLT Classics Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
"Shirley" is a wonderful book by an astonishingly insightful and erudite author, Charlotte Bronte. Charlotte, unlike most women of her day gained education but her keen mind displays not only knowledge, but wisdom of the human condition which she channels into her utterley believeable characters. Her prose is sometimes pragmatically "Yorkshire" and at other times almost poetically Shakespearian. I loved this book!
Moreover, I loved reading it on Kindle. It contained many archaic and unusual words and it was a delight to be able to simply hover over them, to obtain the meaning and origins from the in-built dictionary. Pity it didn't cover all the Yorkshire dialect though!
