About the book

image4.1/5.0

"Gentle reader, may you never feel what I then felt!" Throughout the hardships of her childhood - spent with a severe aunt and abusive cousin, and later at the austere Lowood charity school - Jane Eyre clings to a sense of self-worth, despite of her treatment from those close to her. At the age of eighteen, sick of her narrow existence, she seeks work as a governess. The monotony of Jane's new life at Thornfield Hall is broken up by the arrival of her peculiar and changeful employer, Mr Rochester. Routine at the mansion is further disrupted by mysterious incidents that draw the pair closer together but which, once explained, threaten Jane's happiness and integrity. A flagship of Victorian fiction, Jane Eyre draws the reader in by the vigour of Jane's voice and the novel's forceful depiction of childhood injustice, of the restraints placed upon women, and the complexities of both faith and passion. The emotional charge of Jane's story is as strong today as it was more than 150 years ago, as she seeks dignity and freedom on her own terms. In this new edition, Juliette Atkinson explores the power of narrative voice and looks at the striking physicality of the novel, which is both shocking and romantic.

I love anything by the Brontë sisters, and though I’m aware that this is a classic it just didn’t ‘click’ the same way that other classic literature has done in the past. Even so, I still really enjoyed it because it was the perfect blend of spookiness and romance…

I had to read this for my English Literature degree. To be completely honest I was dreading it; books over 300 pages give me major anexity. It was a slow drag until Chapter 23, to which I really enjoyed the books and thought about it daily. The other characters are interesting and enjoyable to meet. Jane Eyre herself is a little frustraing at times but I love that she always stayed true to what she believe in. She also never gave up when times were hard, she's a cool character, though slight daddy issues. I can see why Jane Eyre is a classic. I probably wouldn't read it again due to it's slow pace and largeness but I did enjoy it this time around.  Now it's time to read the prequel. Wide Sagasso Sea.
