Review:

"Weird and wonderful" ( Guardian)

"So original, so transgressive in its content and so startlingly unorthodox in its form, that its 19th-century readers were dumbfounded by it...a visionary description of psychic life ...a subtle and dazzlingly inventive exploration of areas of consciousness never mapped in fiction before, and seldom since" ( Sunday Times)

" Villette has always been the most heart-squeezing of the Bronte novels...a perfect study of quiet desperation...a rich novel" ( Sunday Express)

"A novel with an unconscious mind. The deeper you dig, the more disturbing it becomes" (Lucasta Miller Independent)

"Charlotte Bronte's most profound achievement" ( Independent)

Book Description:

'I am only just returned to a sense of the real world about me, for I have been reading Villette ... There is something preternatural about its power' George Eliot
