Probably the most shocking of the Brontës' novels, this novel had an instant and phenomenal success and is widely considered to be one of the first sustained feminist novels. A mysterious widow, Mrs. Helen Graham, arrives at Wildfell Hall, a nearby old mansion. A source of curiosity for the small community, the reticent Helen and her young son Arthur are slowly drawn into the social circles of the village.

A good story ruined by the narrator

The narration of this classic made the entire experience PAINFUL. Although capable of reading, the narrator was not capable of dialogue -- something experienced Audible listeners have come to rely upon. So what happens is this: is it a man? is it a woman? which character is it, pray tell? Only those who have read the book in the past and are familiar with the plot line are able to tell.

I hope Audible will avoid these disasters -- I am wondering how it was selected.

Any additional comments?

I am glad that I listened to this book, it was more than I expected. Bronte wrote like she thought. You can't do anything while you read this or you don't get the wonderful mental pictures she writes for you. She is not my favorite author of this timeframe but as a classic, this one is worth the time you will put into it.
