A wonderful companion to the classic
Jane Eyre has long been my favorite novel and this graphic novel just enhanced my reading experience. With it's gallery of characters in the beginning and the section on Charlotte Bronte at the end, this graphic novel is well-rounded and helpful. I also enjoyed the illustrations and the original novel text. This graphic novel is worth the purchase.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I do not have any experience with graphic novels or comics beyond the random flipping through of my cousin¿s Batman comics. I found the Graphic Novel version of Jane Eyre to be completely interesting and engaging. The illustrations were magnificent. They really brought the story of Jane Eyre to life. The language was almost exactly the same as the novel. There was once jarring moment where Jane says ¿Huh?¿. It just didn¿t fit with the language of the rest of the comic.<BR/><BR/>This graphic novel and other graphic novels like it would be excellent in the school atmosphere where some students would be more likely to read and enjoy a graphic novel rather than the novel itself. These graphic novels are beautifully illustrated and remain true to the novels they are based on. I will definitely be buying more of them and hope and pray they make one for Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
