Charlotte Bronte
194 Installments

Jane Eyre is alone in the world, orphaned and living off the charity of reluctant relatives. Hired as a governess, she enters a society of high glamour and dark family secrets. Possibly the world’s most romantic book about child abuse, homelessness, and crippling mental illness, with all the ills of Victorian London as backdrop.

I enjoyed reading this story. Jane's struggle to overcome her circumstances that life delt her is intense and enoyable.

Almost everything that I read was written before I (or probably my mother) was born. A lot of times, I'll forget the plot of a story when I am questioned. My typical confusion will find me unable to recant the cast of characters in a long ago read novel like Wuthering Heights. Or I will find myself unable to remember the specific differences between Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice OR David Copperfield and Great Expectations. But I will never in my life forget every detail of Jane Eyre. I remember walking through the train terminal with that book in my hand and sneaking away from my desk at work to read another few sentences. But most of all, I remember the chilling wedding scene. I loved this book.

Some of the most beautiful writing I have ever experienced: The descriptions of the various locales were such that I could almost feel the wind blowing over the moor and the dank, oppressiveness of Lowood School; the characters, far from being the usual beauteous creatures depicted in many a novel, both classic and contemporary, were plain and homely-looking, and were physically appealing to very few others (throughout the proceedings, the appearance of Miss Eyre is commented upon as being far from pleasing), which made a refreshing change; the plot developments were perfectly timed, so that every drop could be wrung out, without turning sour, before moving on to the next; and some scenes actually had me weeping, whether in sorrow or joy, at the situation of the characters.

This has to be one of my buttonhole books. I could read this over and over.

I didn't remember enjoying this book as much the first time I read it years ago.

This book is fantastic. The story is so well told and so filled with beautiful description and emotion that you can't help but get completely wrapped up in it all the way. A must-read.

What a wonderful read, over and over again... It's difficult to describe what emotions this literary classic evoke.... particularly when I read it at different points in my life and each time, the people in this book are still as if I've met them for the first time, and they stay with me until I read about them again at another point in my life and they again will surprise me as they are right now...

Charlotte Bronte is a literary genius. I enjoyed this book so much. The way she was able to relate things was amazing. She told a story about love that captured my heart and mind. I was unable to put the book down. I will read this again.

I feel like I should have a lot to say about this book, but I really don't. I have to remember that I really shouldn't read the cliffnotes summary of a book before I've read it (I just wanted to know where the story was going, since I was still at the part about Jane's childhood). Reading the cliffnotes meant I already knew the drama with the almost marriage that was stopped because the man was already married. I think me already knowing messed with the plot some, since the big reveal had no effect on me.
