- Length: 20 hrs and 3 mins
Long overshadowed by Jane Eyre, Villette is widely admired as one of Charlotte Bronte's finest works. This story of a young teacher at a girlâ¿¿s school in the city of Villette is a particular challenge for the young reader, for it requires maturity of vision, a fine narrative sense - and a command of French! Mandy Weston, a newcomer to Naxos AudioBooks, tells the story magnificently.

I thoroughly enjoyed the reader's different English and Irish accents. I loved listening to her reading the book as long as it was in English. However, I'm very disappointed in the French, which is clearly not fluent nor natural. As a fluent speaker, I have been very annoyed at not even being able to understand what is being said at times because of the inaccurate pronunciation. Loved the story though!
