So I really have a mental illness when I think that my mom's mentally ill, Jim muses. Katie doesn't miss a beat. I noticed that, she says.

Jim's mother has manipulated him for so long that he doesn't think he can stand it anymore. Or has she? Katie suggests that Jim question this and turn it around until he can see the difference between what his mother says and what he thinks she means.

When we believe that someone else is our problem, Katie says, we're insane. As Jim explores his own self-manipulation, he revises the story of his mentally ill mother and discovers that devoting himself to someone else's happiness, before he has found his own, is hopeless.

In the course of this poignant dialogue, Katie says, Let love kill you. As we follow Jim into clarity, we begin to understand what she means. Download and start listening now!

    " I really enjoyed Jane Erye. Bronte writes this book from a strange angle.. She's sort of giving an account detail by detail but not telling a story. She speaks to you saying "reader-"... It's just different but I think I liked that too. "

    " "Reader, I married him."

    When Jane comes back to Mr. Rochester, I literally cried. Reading this again 14 years later was a wonderful experience. I highly recommend going back to the books you loved as a kid and reading them as an adult. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kara | 6/30/2011

    " One of the best books I have ever read in my life! Charlotte Bronte doesn't ever let you breathe. I couldn't put it down. "

    " There were times I loved this novel and times I found it hard to relate to the character and the verbose descriptions but I wanted to read it throughout the story "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natasha | 6/29/2011

    " I'm not sure I can praise this book high enough. Far from a shrinking violet, Jane is a quiet, steady core of strength who can stare down even the most blustering apoplexy with a cool head. "

    " I think high school ruined my ability to appreciate classic novels...boo "

    " This is a classic story. A great, short, read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mimy | 6/27/2011

    " One of my all-time favorites. Jane is such a powerful and inspirational protagonist. The chemistry between Jane and Mr. Rochester is amazing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 6/27/2011

    " There's been enough said about the Bronte sisters. Special. Special. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 R.J. | 6/27/2011

    " Needed more Bertha, less of the plain bird. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Serena | 6/27/2011

    " At first I was like: Jesus Christ, so talky. But I fell a bit in love with Jane as time went on. I could probably have done without the entire second half of the book, but all in all, it was an exciting read. "
