    " I read this as a high school freshman and still fondly remember. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emilyann Pool | 2/11/2014

    " Dark and stunning and possibly my favorite book ever written. "

    " I read Wuthering Heights in college, loathed it, and promptly wrote off all the Brontes. When I shared that a few months ago, I was encouraged to try Jane Eyre, being assured that it was completely different. "Completely different"? No. It was still overwrought Gothic nonsense with language you sink in up to your ankles. But it was saved by Jane herself, who works against the sentimentality of the plot and Rochester himself, and St. John, who by his very loathesomeness makes Rochester seem a viable option. "

    " Story was good but the reading was dry "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Miner | 1/26/2014

    " Just OK. Not much happening for the thickness of the book. I really had to force myself to finish but in glad I did. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ayesha | 1/16/2014

    " This is a really great book. I enjoyed every word of it. Jane's character is excellent.. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Agnieszka | 1/4/2014

    " I hate to give this more stars that Villette, because it's not as good, but it is more enjoyable. The only new thing I have to say that isn't completely covered in other reviews, is that you can see the template of contemporary romance novels in this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sofia Saleem | 1/4/2014

    " A dark, ravishing and intriguing romance novel. At the heart of this novel, Jane Eyre portrays an intensely deep relationship between a man and a woman from staunchly different classes during the Victorian Era in England. Rochester, the male protagonist, is a rich lonely man harbouring a secret that threatens to destroy his passionate love for a women below his social standing while Jane, the female protagonist, is a plain-looking introverted young woman who is looking for a place in the world. Jane Eyre is intertwined with a complex plot, characterization, and symbolism. Rochester and Jane are an iconic romantic pair, much like Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet and Jane Austen's Darcy & Elizabeth. Charlotte Bronte was a woman ahead of her time, if this novel was written today, it would have easily delved further into the relationship between the main protagonists, absence of the censorship inherent during the time. "

    " I seldom read classic literature that I don't love!!!! This is a multi-read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Simone Taylor | 12/11/2013

    " The bit of the book from when St. James found her the teaching job to almost the very end was pretty slow for me. But I absolutely loved the rest. The ending was a bit cheesy, but the characters deserved it and I enjoyed the way it all came together. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 11/29/2013

    " I do love the idea of the Brontes but I admit I get a little bogged down with the language. Oh well-Jane is a sweet thing and I admire her spunk, although I don't know why she fell for such an old guy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaye Steeno | 11/23/2013

    " One of my favorite books. I have read it many times. "

    " Oh my God. This book was amazing! I enjoyed it so much. Jane was amazing and I fell in love with Mr Rochester. Such a good read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lizzie | 6/2/2013

    " Fantastic novel. Really opened my eyes to feminism in an era when women were less important. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila | 3/20/2013

    " Those Bronte sisters sure could write great novels. Another one of my favorites. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tia Saxton | 12/14/2012

    " I've seen the play, but I'm glad I finally read it! I love the character of Jane and you get to know her so much better in the book then in the play. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 5/21/2012

    " I finally read this classic and couldn't put it down. Loved everything about it. Saw the movie afterwards and made it even better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sasha Albrecht | 4/25/2012

    " I loved the complexity of the story. I initially had trouble getting into it, but once I adjusted to the language, it was hard to put down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 3/11/2012

    " Some good story. Read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Faulconer | 12/17/2011

    " This novel is beautifully written, but can get a bit too descriptive. I enjoyed the story of Jane Eyre, and it is defiantly one I will keep on the book shelf. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leanna Runyan | 4/11/2009

    " I absolutely fell in love with the character Jane Eyre and her constant need to do what is moral and right, often at the expense of her own happiness. The novel itself, however, drags on at some points and just gets downright weird at other points. Despite this, I could hardly put it down! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joey | 3/17/2009

    " Really amusing at first but it got duller and duller and to be honest by the time she got to Moor House I couldn't take it anymore. Sorry. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzy Stanford | 4/4/2008

    " Hated this in high school - LOVE it now. Beautifully written. "

    " atmospheric and exciting. a wonderful classic "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Butler | 11/24/2007

    " I LOOOOVVEEE this book. It took me completely by surprise. I thought I was going to hate it, as I had to read it for my AP English course... But it was phenomenal. I would say it's a must-read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abeni Jolley | 8/28/2007

    " This book is kind of freaky, but a wonderful read. Don't worry if you start out slow either. "
