    Beautiful book!

    I just got this today. Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books (I bought it on my nook) and so I wanted to find a high quality, attractive paper copy of it. I ordered this one and I absolutely love it! It is great quality, gorgeous, and old-fashioned looking. I can't wait to get more of the books from this classics series.

    Jane Eyre! Hallelujah!

    Jane Eyre is an amazing story, which everyone must read (also, be sure to check out Charlotte's sister, Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, another fantastic read.) Even if you were required to read it in high school, read it again. It's very good, and one of my favourite stories; which might explain why when I found out B&N came out with new leatherbound books and saw their selections, I squealed in excitement.

    The edition is very good and is worthy of s place in your permanent library. If you have some of the older Leatherbound Classics, be forewarned that these new ones are not the same size (but they still work with the collection! So still buy it!) If I were to describe these new ones in some other way, it would be like a collection within a collection. All the new editions go together, with being of the same size and having different but similar covers. I'd probably suggest getting Wuthering Heights as a companion piece, but as I said before, it's not totslly necessary since these new books go just as well with the old ones, despite some of their differences.

    This is by far my favorite love story. Beautifully written with

    This is by far my favorite love story. Beautifully written with a wonderful lesson (and a healthy dash of drama) and absolutely gorgeous!!! I also love the color scheme of this book. Though at first I was slightly confused by the red "gilding" on the pages I quickly got the congruity with Dracula. Although I won't give away the story line, I would recommend anyone read this book especially who need an example of a good love story to throw back at crazed Twilight fans.

    (Just to clarify, not knocking the Twilight series AT ALL, I just think that how rabid the fans are is hilarious.)

    A Classic Love Story

    Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is a love story that appeals to all audiences. The protagonist, Jane, is orphaned at a young age and sent to live with her Aunt Reed, who scorns her. At the tender age of 10, Jane is sent to an all girls’ boarding school and from there, begins her education which eventually lands her a job as a governess for the eccentric Edward Rochester. She begins to fall in love with the dark, cold, and abrupt master of the house. Rochester, however, has a secret that threatens to tear them apart.
    Jane Eyre can be considered to be a feminist. Unlike the other women during the Victorian Era, Jane is outspoken and independent. While she suffers through the plot’s twists and turns, she is never portrayed as a “damsel in distress” or otherwise weak; she is self-reliant. Jane does, however, fall in love with Edward Rochester. At the beginning of his character introduction, readers are able to see him as a mysterious man. He is superior to Jane in the sense that he has money and a higher social standing, and yet it is undeniable that Jane has a superior moral character. This is clearly seen when readers discover the secret Rochester is trying so desperately to hide. In contrast, St. John can be considered Rochester’s foil. Where Rochester is impulsive and unpredictable, St. John is austere and ambitious. Jane often associates him with rock, ice, and snow.
    Jane Eyre, written in the typically flow-y Victorian language, is a book that many readers will be able to relate to. Although the situations may not be representative of what a person today might deal with, the emotions that Jane experiences are ones that everyone feels and connect to.
