Love is around the corner, and she must avoid it at all costs.--Submitted by Anonymous
A flowing story in which the characters come to life. With vibrant and strong language Charlotte Bronte takes us on a magical journey through which we see Jane Eyre's life. In thrilling and descriptive text Bronte clearly describes Jane Eyre's tragic journey. Growing up she has a sad life, from the death of her parents to her abusive cousin. Yet when she goes to live with Mr. Rochester her life takes a rapid turn. Can this be Janes' chance for happiness or is she set for another fall?--Submitted by kerry
When I first read Jane Eyre, I was absolutely captivated by the story, the characters, Jane's plight as an orphan at Gateshead and Lowood and her transition to governess at Thornfield. The story develops in a way that holds your interest as she meets Rochester and the secrets of Thornfield are revealed. What lies in wait for Jane is nothing compared to what she has escaped from and this, I feel, is the most incredible and page-turning aspect of the book. For sheer what-is-going-to-happen-next value, Jane Eyre really can't be beat--it is a true gothic novel. It is a romance between two strong characters each with diametrically opposed pasts and who represent the time period in which it was written. The plot is so imaginative and so full of unexpected turns and coincidences that it is impossible to put down after being drawn in at Chapter One. This book leaves the reader wanting to know what will happen to the much abused Jane and read with increasing credulity all that she goes through as a child and subsequently the fate that befalls her once she is at Thornfield. Jane Eyre is truly timeless--it is a work of literature that will introduce readers of any age to memorable characters and a story that gets better and better each time you read it. Go get yourself a copy, curl up on the couch and travel to England in the 1840's courtesy of Charlotte Bronte! Happy Reading! --Submitted by Jennifer C. Person
God gives us a lot of blessings. Sometimes we don't care when we read or see that there are people don't have those blessings. We should thank God for what we have. In Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte shows us many variable things we have and don't consider it; for example to have a family, to be able to see it also shows us that if we are patient for what we have God will give better things. Jane Eyre is a classic romantic novel. It talks about a girl searching for a family and someone to consider her despite being poor and a woman she wants to be independent like all the women now but it is more difficult for her. She lived a misery life till she achieved one of her dreams but will she achieve the rest of her dreams? Try to find yourself what dream did she achieve and if she will achieve the other dreams. I am sure that all the women will like this novel.--Submitted by Belle Brown
