Not so complete Jun 13, 2008
How could they not include Anne? It's almost as if they just threw in Emily just because Wuthering Heights happens to be so popular. They should have either put all of the sisters' works in or Charlotte's alone. The glass is half empty.
great buy Apr 6, 2008
great investment in well written novels and recommend it to be a good addition to everyone library
Such beautifully woven paragraghs Aug 21, 2007
After reading classic novels on and off in school until I got out of college and in my own free time, I have to say Charlotte Bronte's writing style is the most intricately and splendidly crafted masterpiece. Her sister is quite talented as well. It's a great deal to have this collection that you can pick up and just start reading one of the shorter stories, or go over some of the most powerfully written sentences in Jane Eyre.
Charlotte & Emily Bronte: The Complete Novels Mar 15, 2007
What a beautiful book! This is a hardbound book with gold leaf and a red ribbon bookmark. Beautifully put together. It contains ALL of the works of the two Bronte sisters, so if you love 19th century "trashy" romance novels, (which I do!) this is the collection for you! Would definitly recommend this edition over any of the paperback bound editions. Cost more, but it's worth it.
Charlotte and Emily Bronte: The Complete Novels Mar 8, 2007
Great collection of Bronte sisters' work at a good price. Nice hardcover, with dust sleeve. Big prints. Love it. If you are a Bronte sisters fan, definitely get this book. The novel I like the most of course is "Jane Eyre". I read some of the dialogues between Jane and Rochester several times, and every time I read, I got something new out of it. I love Gothic romance, and the Byronic hero of the English literature.
