Very frustrating

For those who live in a wonderful society full of logical and sane pursuits, how can you possibly understand the steps to the darkness and the madness one can be slowly drowning in? Those who have felt the other side of life, the echos inside themselves , will knowingly nod at Antoinette's tragedy and Rochester's skeletons in the closet. Rhys does not pollute Rochester but clarify his character as a man , and in Jane Eyre, a man who has tried to murder that side of him , that monster, for her sake.Fascinatng for those who understand madness, I'm sure those who have at times felt themselves suffocating by aura shrouding themselves will understand this beautiful book.

This book is excellent if you sit down and pick every detail apart. One must have a firm grasp on Jane Eyre before reading this novel. If you know every aspect of Jane Eyre you'll throughly enjoy the maddness that is weaved throught this novel. Remember to concentrate on the roles of the great houses and link them to the roles of women in society of that time period. Good Luck!
