I loved Agnes Grey. Agnes is a young woman of incredible character, and her integrity, patience, prudence, forbearance, self-control, humility, forgiveness, tenderness, and compassion are to be admired. It is so important to read about people one would want to emulate and would aspire to be like, and Agnes Grey is one such person. The comparisons and contrasts between all of the book's characters was an insight into humankind, as well. And, the ending...

Agnes Grey read by Emilia Fox is charming and engaging if not predictable (but who cares its a Bronte!). I thought the narrators voice was angelic and perfect for the meandering mind of the protagonist. I feel that I go back in time, that these audio books of stories from that century, make me feel like I am in my own time ship. The verses, the words used at that time, make English a beautiful language to me again. I love listening to the story but also enjoy the poetic verses that are throughout the book. IA lovely listen.

Where does Agnes Grey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
So far this is the first audiobook we have listened to.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I found that all the characters were really interesting.
What about Emilia Fox’s performance did you like?
I felt that Emilia Fox was very well chosen to read this particualr book, her voice just seemed to work very well with the period and style.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
At times this book made me thoughtful, and at other times annoyed with what poor Agnes had to put up with. The descripitons of some characters and thier actions could be really amusing.
Any additional comments?
A good book to my mind is something you cannot put down, you just have to start reading or listening to it till the end. Not much could keep us sitting quietly for 80 mins, but this did.

I loved Emilia Fox's reading of Agnes Grey. I have no problem recommending this. It is such a feel good story. The voice characterisations are excellent.
