At Thornfield Hall, resolute and independent Jane Eyre finds fulfillment in her duties as governess, and the love of her life in her employer Edward Rochester. But when a dark secret from Rochester’s past comes to light, Jane must make the most difficult decision of her life: to stay beside the man she loves regardless of the truth, or to embark upon a new life free of the encumbrances of the past.
First of all, check out the cool foldable version of this book (above) I picked up on Clearance at Barnes & Noble after Christmas. They had pre-folded books, and ones that you fold yourself (that where cheaper). So, I picked up this copy of Jane Eyre, and finally got around to reading it last week.
I think the last time I read Jane Eyre was in high school. I remembered that she went to Thornfield Hall as a governess, and I remembered Mr. Rochester and the “secret” of what was being held upstairs, but other than that, I was surprised at how much I had forgotten about this book… about her childhood, about St. John and his sisters… all sorts of things.
I still feel like this is a classic mystery and one everyone should read! People just don’t write like this anymore. The author spends a lot of time developing Jane’s character, and to me, none of it was boring. I enjoyed revisiting her story and still enjoyed the thrill of the mystery and what was to happen next!
Would I recommend this to my fellow book lover? Absolutely!
Would I recommend this to my teen daughter? Yes! I would love for her to read it.
5 of 5 stars.
