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.

Jane Eyre is probably one of the characters I identify the most with. Her story, one of the best ever told. I adore this book.

Jane Eyre has always been one of my favourite books from the first moment I read it and to now have a copy for my tablet that allows me to have it wherever I go is just an added bonus!

.The eBook version was free and it worked very well! I don't need to specify anything else since eBook is eBook.

This little hardcover is very charming, and comes with a ribbon for place-keeping. I'm giving it as a gift to my 10-year-old niece, who is sure to love it!

Love the story, it takes some time to "get over" the old language, but loved it! A story that needs to be read over more than once in your lifetime.

I found this book to be far to long and boring to read. There is to much description on every page to enjoy it..Almost wanted to even skip chapters

Well written classic. I couldn't put it down. It took me a bit to catch on to the old english style but once I did I couldn't believe the gem I'd "discovered".
It makes me sad that how literature in schools has taken a turn for the worse because this USED to be required reading. And now.... the reading in school is ridiculously bland.
