Jane Eyre

by Charlotte Brontë

The first part of the book guides you through Jane’s cruel childhood. At eighteen, Jane is a governess at Thornfield hall. There she meets her love and master, Mr. Rochester, yet he is hiding a terrible secret.

Will the love between the two last? And, what is Mr. Rochester's secret? 

This book is brilliantly written and makes readers see from Jane's quirky prospective. I truly recommend this to anyone!

Oh yay! Yes, you post book reviews, and talk about books. Just books though. No role plays or something. Please post soon!

I finished Jane Eyre last night. I thought it was good...but I think Wuthering Heights, by Charlotte's sister is better. It's more interesting as a story. I like Mr. Rochester and his character as the grumpy sort instead of the normally romantic, handsome hero.

I wouldn't say I like the Mr. Rochester character...

Whoa. I didn't even know people posted here anymore. Any-hoo, I love Jane Eyre. The book held me completely spellbound. The end, where Mr. Rochester's secret comes out, was SO depressing!  But I love the ending chapter, especially that first sentence (amazing quote!) I recommend the 2011 movie. (but it also reminds me of how much a creeper Mr. Rochester is) It's like a fast-forwarded version of the book and thankfully sticks to the book. It's rated PG-13 because of some stupid painting they had to throw in.

Stupid painting? Is that an idiom? I know this must sound stupid but I don't think it should be rated PG-13 because of a picture...

I finally finished it.. uhh, a little less than a week ago. It was... um, interesting. It got easier after the *hemhem*, like, 350th page. Please don't look it up, it's just an estimate:) I watched the 1997 version two days ago, and the 2011 one last night. I liked the 2011 one a whole lot more. I watched The Boy in the Striped Pajamas today. Three depressing movies in three nights. Ah well. (The lady who's Madam Pomfrey in Harry Potter is Mrs. Fairfax in the 1997 version, and the guy who plays Will Scarlet in Robin Hood plays Richard Mason in the new one!!!)

I really liked this book, especially the part when you find out Mr. R's secret. The night before the wedding was especially creepy when Jane sees Bertha (I'm not telling who she is in case anyone's not read it yet!) tearing up her veil.
