Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre (Penguin Classics) Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
I first tried to read this book in 7th grade for a book report assignment. I never got close to finishing it or even half way through...I don't know how I completed the assignment. It was too difficult for me then...I tried to read it again sometime in college but I just ran out of time because classes were so demanding. Finally I've had the time and I finished it! I absolutely loved it...it was such a wonderful story. The only thing I would have changed was the fact that I saw a movie version recently so I knew what was going to happen. I tried to forget but I couldn't...

The copy I read was my mom's from when she was young-it has her maiden name printed inside the cover which means she read it before she was 21. I will treasure this book...one day give it to my daughter.

Today my prof asked if anyone had read Jane Eyre and no one raised their hands. She was very disappointed to say the least. I wanted to say "my friend just read that book" but instead I said "I've seen the movie". She said that counted for something. And then this old guy in the back admitted to having read it but he was embarrassed!
