Shirley is surely not Brontes best, though its themes are rich--how to combine manufacturing w land preservation , capitalism w justice. The plot is sloooow.

Great book. A little long winded at times but still worth a listen. Excellent narration.

I started this book about a year ago and gave up. Determined not to leave it unread I picked it up and persevered to the bitter end. It really was the most badly written and boring book l have ever read. It could have been told in a sixth of the time. It was self indulgent, whole chapters given over to sermons and introspective thoughts of characters. Honestly, Charlotte Bronte only wrote one book. My criticism has nothing to do with the age in which it was written, in fact the behaviour of the heroine was seen as shocking at the time. Bronte was a friend of Mrs Gaskell who is a hundred times the better writer. Be warned don’t waste your time and money on this book.
