Jane Eyre is one of the great romantic heroines of world literature.

Orphaned into cold charity at the hands of her rich cousins and, later, at Lowood School, Jane escapes to take up a position as governess to the young ward of Mr Rochester. Their love affair, Jane's discovery of Rochester's secret - hideously concealed int he attic of Thornfield Hall - and her desperate flight are told in a drama of passionate intensity whose pace never slackens.

Jane Eyre is a love story with a happy ending, rare in its time for its sympathetic portrayal of the love of a married man for another woman. It is, as Thackeray said, 'The masterwork of a great genius.'


Recommended reading for A103.

What a lady this Jane! Humble and pious but yet she knows what is best for her. However, I’m happy we don’t live in those times anymore. First of all, this novel clearly demonstrates the use of divorce! Second, I am really happy social classes are somewhat less rigid those days.
I must admit I wasn’t looking for a pleasant reading, I wanted to fill the gaps left by my education. But I really did enjoy myself. I loved how Bronte creates atmospheres; I really got carried away by the book. So much I was feeling uncomfortable because of the chilly weather, when it was actually above 20*C in the real world. :-)
Eventually, I cannot but pinpoint Mss Bronte didn’t much like the French; the heartless mistress Mss Varens is French. Adèle, quite an annoying child at the beginning grows up to be a “pleasing companion” later, thanks to “a sound English education [that] corrected in great measure her French defects” (sic)

Thank you Laura0104!!!!

I'll post the book tomorrow monday!

02/10: off to mellowdaisy!

Received this in the post today, thank you French-girl for sending it on to me! I'm currently watching the TV series at the moment so it will be interesting to read the book as well. I have a few rings before this one but will get on to it as soon as possible.

I actually finished this on 4th December but as I was away in Italy I couldn't journal it. I enjoyed reading the story as I'd seen the TV series and wanted to see how it compared. I do find novels like this a bit trying at times because I have to concentrate more than usual but I still managed to enjoy the story. I do enjoy happy endings as well, even when I know they're coming!
