Villette - Charlotte Bronte - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of Villette:

The life of Lucy Snow.

My favorite Charlotte Bronte quote from the book:

"Life is so constructed that the event does not, can not, will not, match the expectation."

Questions to ponder while reading Villette:

Where do you go when you lose everything?

Is beauty really that important?

My review of Villette:

I love it when the not-pretty girl wins.

I am glad I am not a teacher.

I thought Ginerva was weird.
