I love Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. Jane Eyre is a classic book that is well-worth the read. So, what is Jane Eyre about?
Jane Eyre is about an orphan girl of the same name. Jane lives with her aunt. However, Jane’s aunt sends her to a boarding school for young women. She gets a good education from the boarding school. Once she is a grown woman she moves to a manor named Longfield Manor to work as a governess. Jane is in charge of a young girl named Adele there. She works there for some time before she meets the master of the manor. The Master of Longfield Manor is a reclusive man named Edward Rochester. Jane falls in love with Mr. Rochester. However, Mr. Rochester has a terrible secret. The secret separates Jane and Mr. Rochester for some time.
Jane Eyre is a good book about a strong and a determined woman. Jane works with the gifts that are given to her to do her best in life. She struggles. She works hard. She does her best to make her way in the world. The best thing about this book is the love between Jane and Mr. Rochester. Jane’s love with Mr. Rochester is a timeless love. It is a love of the ages.
However, there are a few things that I dislike about the book. The book is a very slow read. The book is similar to Jane Austen’s book, Pride and Prejudice, in that way. It is verbose in certain parts. It is sparse in other parts.
I suggest that you read this book if you have the time to do so. However, this book is not a light-read. It is not a book that you should take with you to the beach.
That is it for this book review.
Always with infinite love,
