    The Classic Touch

    When I first read Jane Eyre, I was hypnotised from the moment she was locked into the fateful Red Room until Ms. Bronte put the period after The End. Eagerly, I watched as the story progressed into something more wonderfully beautiful than I had anticipated. There is a simplicity there that makes Jane Eyre decidedly charming. Mystery, romance, and passion are woven into each sentence. Ladies, be ready to fall completely in love with Mr. Rochester! It is a definite 'must-read'. Enjoy!

    Great Novels: The Barnes & Noble Classics

    This collection of books is so helpful to the High School English student. These classics are all excellent and necessary to read before college. Jane Eyre, my personal favorite, is included along with these other wonderful books I appreciate.
