Her courage is tested once again when she arrives at Thornfield Hall, where she has been hired by the brooding, proud Edward Rochester to care for his ward Adèle. Jane finds herself drawn to his troubled yet kind spirit. She falls in love. Hard.
But there is a terrifying secret inside the gloomy, forbidding Thornfield Hall. Is Rochester hiding from Jane? Will Jane be left heartbroken and exiled once again?’
I loved this book.
I have been putting off reading this book for so long, but as it was on the required reading list for University I had to finally read it. Now that I’ve read it, I am so made at myself for not reading it sooner.
I will admit that this was a large book so it took me a while to read it, but it was so worth the time. There is nothing about this book that I didn’t enjoy.
I loved the writing in this book more than I had expected to. It was utterly beautiful. The descriptions, the characters, the way the story flowed through the years. Charlotte Bronte really showed a master class in great writing with this book.
This story was truly wonderful. It was such a sweeping and moving story to get lost it. I was so captivated by the story that I was able to pick right up where I left of without any issues.
As for the characters; they were perfectly crafted. I was able to understand where each of the characters were coming from in any given situation. Jane was a marvelous character to follow and journey with through this epic story.
There is a reason why this book is a classic, and I am so happy that I have finally read it.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is a book that everyone should read at least once in their lifetime.
