Villette by Charlotte Brontë (1816 - 1855).


A quiet, self-reliant, intelligent, 23-year-old woman, Lucy has, as Miss Ginevra Fanshawe asserts, "no attractive accomplishments – no beauty." She seems to have no living relatives.

Though usually reserved and emotionally self-controlled, Lucy has strong feelings and affections for those whom she really values. She even sincerely cares for the giddy Ginevra, albeit in a blunt, curmudgeonly fashion. She is a firm Protestant and denounces Roman Catholicism as false ("God is not with Rome").

The novel is initially set in the English countryside, and later follows Lucy Snowe to the fictional Belgian town of Villette, a Gothic town where the majority of the action takes place. Villette is modelled upon the city of Brussels and is set in the fictional kingdom of Labassecour (modelled on Belgium). "Labassecour" is the French word for farmyard.. ( Wikipedia)

  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard
  • DPL = silverquill



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi Amy,

Love it :D But please coordinate with Phil C. Fortunecookie is actually doing the solo on this one and she had asked Phil and Larry to MC and DPL.

I'm good with any combination. But I don't know Phil's current workload . . . .

Tom
See you in the library . . . . .

MW is complete :D However - - - while I was able to insert the needed additional sections - - - I went one too high and discovered I'm not able to remove Section #75. Would you please take care of that little "clean up" for me :oops:

Thanks . . . . .

:clap: yay, thank you Phil and Amy and Tom!

I'll upload Section 1 of Villette soon. This is a big project for me, as can only do it very much part-time, so I estimate that Villette will take me the best part of a year to complete, also because it is a long book, which I've split into 74 sections. The total word count is 194,561 words - yipes!! I gotta be craazzzyy :)

Have a wonderful day

I Love Librivox :)

Kind regards to you all,

Leanne
