Book Review: Jane Eyre By Charlotte Bronte


Orphaned as a child, Jane has felt an outcast her whole young life. Her courage is tested once again when she arrives at Thornfield Hall, where she has been hired by the brooding, proud Edward Rochester to care for his ward Adèle. Jane finds herself drawn to his troubled yet kind spirit. She falls in love. Hard.

But there is a terrifying secret inside the gloomy, forbidding Thornfield Hall. Is Rochester hiding from Jane? Will Jane be left heartbroken and exiled once again?


I really, really wished I enjoyed this one more! I thought I would considering I enjoyed the movie.

I tend to get more reading done these days through audiobooks. The handiest thing ever when running about quiet literally. I have taken to no social media (GR doesn’t count, right?) anyway during this peaceful time I have been taking to new projects building upon what I have currently. Including my TBR.

But I remember reading that this is to be a sort of romance novel? It really does not indicate that throughout in my opinion.

Plain Jane tells her story logically with not much feelings to it. There is not anything to make you feel emotions so it was hard to form any sort of attachment to it.
However listening to how the writing is was very well written.

It does not have writing that includes a connection to the characters sadly however I really admired the writing so I was being fair with my rating.

3/5 Stars
