Dark Quartet: The Story of the Brontës - Lynne Reid Banks This story of the Brontes is interesting because the lives of the Brontes would be almost impossible to make boring. However, I did not get much more from this book than what I had already inferred from reading the Brontes' novels. To say that it is not written to the Bronte standard would be an understatement. The writing style is simplistic and abrupt, not at all the eloquent, emotional writing of Anne, Charlotte or Emily. It was a quick easy read though (it took me one day) and it did put me in the mood to read the one last Bronte novel that I hadn't read yet.
