5.0 out of 5 stars It is Jane Eyre, sir Jan. 11 2009
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
It's hard to imagine a better gothic romance than "Jane Eyre" -- gloomy vast houses, mysterious secrets, and a brooding haunted man with a dark past.

In fact, Charlotte Bronte's classic novel has pretty much everything going for it -- beautiful settings, a passionate romance tempered by iron-clad morals, and a heroine whose poverty and lack of beauty only let her brains and courage shine brighter. And it's all wrapped in the misty, haunting atmosphere of a true gothic story -- madwoman in the attic and all.

Jane Eyre was an orphan, abused and neglected first by relatives, then by a boarding school run by a tyrannical, hypocritical minister. But Jane refuses to let anyone shove her down -- even when her saintly best friend dies from the wretched conditions.

But many years later, Jane moves on by applying to Thornfield Hall for a governess position, and gets the job. She soon becomes the teacher and friend to the sprightly French girl Adele, but is struck by the dark, almost haunted feeling of her new home.

Then she runs into a rather surly horseman -- who turns out to be her employer, Mr. Rochester, a cynical, embittered man who spends little time at Thornfield. They are slowly drawn together into a powerful love, despite their different social stations -- and Rochester's apparent attentions to a shallow, snotty aristocrat who wants his wealth and status.

But strange things are happening at Thornfield -- stabbings, fires, and mysterious laughter. Jane and Rochester finally confess their feelings to each other, but their wedding is interrupted when Rochester's dark past comes to light. Jane flees into the arms of long-lost family members, and is offered a new life -- but her love for Rochester is not so easily forgotten...

3.0 out of 5 stars Norton edition March 30 2011
By Eyre
Format:Paperback
I had bought the norton edition of Jane Eyre with the hope that it would help me in understanding some of the more abstruse religious symbols, quotes, and confounding vocabulary used in the novel. However I have to say that the extra footnotes were mostly irrelevant and did not serve the purpose. To anyone thinking of buying the norton edition, my advice is to save the extra ten bucks and invest in a good dictionary instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jane was such a good girl! July 2 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Of course I like this novel, but not quite as much as I did when a young teenager susceptible to falling in love with anyone vaguely Byronic. Or even as a university student, still under the thrall of the Romantics. This time I winced at Jane's righteousness; you know the sort: they will stick by their principles even if it nearly destroys another person. He may lose his sight, his great castle, and one of his hands as a result of her leaving him, but by God, she is still right!

Then there is the problem of the first wife. Others will know the books that told the story of her imprisonment in Thornfield Hall from her point of view.

So many times I was awed by the brilliance of Charlotte Bronte, her acute observation and elegance as a writer. By I feel I need something slightly less proper next to offset Bronte's thorough decency. I can't help that I'm reading JE in 2014, afterall. Next up: Based on a True Story. It promises to have some good old raunch.
