Though probably the least memorable of the Brontë novels I've read thus far, The Tenant... stands on equal ground with Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. This was the most realistic of the three, and certainly controversial for the time. It was a very bold novel, and for this reason alone it carries as much weight, if not more, as her sisters' more fanciful works.

Bold story in its time. Great read.

The structure of this story told through letters and diaries is an engaging and, I expect, a fairly unconventional method in 1848. Despite the language and mores of 150 years ago, the story is as chillingly relevent today in it's portrayal of the manipulation and mind control exerted by an abusive husband over an intelligent woman.
