Today I will be reviewing…
I never read this in high school like most people did, so I am little bit of a late comer to the fabulous Jane Eyre.
Orphaned into the household of her Aunt Reed at Gateshead, subject to the cruel regime at Lowood charity school, Jane Eyre nonetheless emerges unbroken in spirit and integrity. She takes up the post of governess at Thornfield, falls in love with Mr. Rochester, and discovers the impediment to their lawful marriage in a story that transcends melodrama to portray a woman’s passionate search for a wider and richer life than Victorian society traditionally allowed. With a heroine full of yearning, the dangerous secrets she encounters, and the choices she finally makes, Charlotte Bronte’s innovative and enduring romantic novel continues to engage and provoke readers..
This book was fabulous. I couldn’t put it down. The characters were so real to me and Bronte made the story flow so well. I just loved how Jane and Mr. Rochester fall in love, but he doesn’t realize he loves her until she is gone. And then the fire! Oh the fire! It is such a sweet story with a fabulous ending.
I loved this book so much more than Wuthering Heights (hated it!). This love story was more real and you could feel how much they loved each other and yearned for each other. And I also loved that there was a bit of mystery as well with his wife upstairs going mad. That added a fun twist to the story that I really liked. I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs a good love story with a some mystery.
