Oh brother, I could say soo much on this subject, but let me just say that this book rocks my socks off. Every time, too. I reread it every now and again, and it just gets better. I want to find a book EXACTLY like it, but that's kind of redundant. I just wish that I could flip a switch, forget every thing I just read, and read it again as if for the first time. Mr Rochester (mmm...) is just irresistible, because he isn't what he seems and is excellent at leading you in a completely opposite direction... then when everything is revealed, you love him more, and by the end of the book... you want him for your own... *Snaps out of a reverie* Ahem. Uh.. yes so Charlotte Bronte is fabulous at not revealing too much at one time. Fabulous at keeping things appropriate, but still romantic as crap. I love Jane's strong will and determination to do the right thing. I admire her a lot for everything she's been through. Each time I read it, it touches me whenever she touches happiness, and it tears me apart whenever it gets torn from her. Oh, give this book a go, just for the heck of it. I hope you enjoy it like I and so many others have. Oh, and let me just say, that when things seem slow, just think about how beautiful the writing style is, and that everything is important to unraveling the characters to the proper extent. ^.^

Jane Eyre... the title is plain and not really an name that would make me want to pick up the book abd read it. To some extent the title does invite you, makes you want ask yourself," Well, whos is Jane Eyre?" I would just go more for a title that jumps out at me, and this....just skips.
The characters personaliies made you really think about who they were and their hidden identities. Charlotte Bronte never gave away too much. It left you really wanting to figure out the mystery, who these people were and the kind of past they had.
In some parts of the book I really did not want to read on and found it to be dull at points. Towards the end of the book I must admit, I was anxious to know whats was going to happen next. Anxious to know where Jane would end up or wouldn't. Where Jane and Rochesters relationship would progress to.
The ending... I guess was satisfying but definitely not surprising because the ending was so cliche. We all knew Jane and Mr. Rochester were going to reunite and live happily ever after. I was looking for more shock but I was left with the same thing I predicted. The only thing that was a little surprising is the fact that she actually got the chance to meet her real family and experience the love that she never had. This love could not have been filled by Rochester because their love was more intimate. She needed a family, connection love that she never knew with the Reeds.
I have learned from Jane Eyre that love should be given chances and this is why the theme was worthwhile because it gave you hope for something better for Jane. This book also teaches that love can be found in the strangest places as we see when Jane eneters Thornfield all and meets Mr. Rochester and is only a servant girl to him.
Charlotte Bronte's style of writing is of course original because it is about her but I felt that while reading this book Charlottle Bronte explained very well the actions that took place and explained well the feelings and emotions of the other characters,but, I felt like she lacked to tell us about how she felt when certain situations were happening. I wish I could have felt what she felt and imagined everything that she thought about.

    Terrible

    This was a really terrible book that made me want to tear my hair out. Really I don't know why everyone thinks this book is so great. It is boring and annoying and frustrating. Also, when I read reviews I'm trying to get a feel for the book. Please do not have conversations amongst yourselves or write a review with such poor grammar and spelling that it is impossible to read. If you don't have a useful, intelligent, and concise way to convey your opinion about any book, do not write a review. You are wasting mine and everyone else's time.

    One of the Greatest Novels of All Time

    Beautiful prose, plot, and depth. Jane Eyre is a haunting story of love and despair, a masterpice that took a while to finish and abosrb. I am so glad I read this book!
