Jane Eyre ranks as one of the greatest and most perennially popular works of English fiction. Although the poor but plucky heroine is outwardly of plain appearance, she possesses an indomitable spirit, a sharp wit and great courage.

She is forced to battle against the exigencies of a cruel guardian, a harsh employer and a rigid social order. All of which circumscribe her life and position when she becomes governess to the daughter of the mysterious, sardonic and attractive Mr Rochester.

However, there is great kindness and warmth in this epic love story, which is set against the magnificent backdrop of the Yorkshire moors. Ultimately the grand passion of Jane and Rochester is called upon to survive cruel revelation, loss and reunion, only to be confronted with tragedy.

It is a great book with a great plot. It can just get a bit wordy and hard to follow at times. It is one of the best classic books ever

A brilliant first person narrative from mid-Victorian England, which has become culturally significant because of its feminist, no-holds-barred heroine, Jane, and her love affair with the 'beast' to her 'beauty': Edward Rochester.

Jane Eyre is a classic tale of love, friendship and rivalry. The story is about a 10 year old girl (at the beginning) and it expands over the course of the book as Jane meets friends, lovers and pupils. Though it is long and challenging, and is a little hard to grasp if you haven't read books of that period before, Jane Eyre is perfect for those who are tired of books that are firmly rooted in the 21st century. Though it was written well over 100 years ago, Charlotte Bronte's masterpiece endures to the present day.

AMAZING BOOK!

It was about Jane Eyre - a story based on her life. I think if you read it, you'll love it because you'll learn some facts about her.

28 Jul 2014

well why not? i know its old fashioned but its my fave book and has been for a while. the underlying romance is a brilliant twist. i don't give much for the begining but the end where they both accept each other for who they are is seriously romantic

It's beautifully classic.

Ah! Jane Eyre, it was a very old-fashioned book, I'm guessing, although I really did enjoy it. The way she talked to the teacher was incredible. I definitely would have kept my mouth zipped. The Grace Stooke part startled me quite. The horrendous laughing was --- horrendous! very shocking and loud. 4/5
