Jane Eyre is the story of a small, plain-faced, intelligent, and passionate English orphan. Jane is abused by her aunt and cousin and then attends a harsh charity school. Through it all she remains strong and determinedly refuses to allow a cruel world to crush her independence or her strength of will. A masterful story of a woman's quest for freedom and love. Jane Eyre is partly autobiographical, and Charlotte Brontë filled it with social criticism and sinister Gothic elements. A must read for anyone wishing to celebrate the indomitable strength of will or encourage it in their growing children.

This is by far one of my favorite all-time reads. It has everything- romance, drama, mystery and mental illness. It was an amazing story, and each character was so complex and well-developed. The strange, twisted love affair between a lonely Jane Eyre and her tormented master, Mr. Rochester, make for delightful reading. A school-girl's working knowledge of French may be helpful, as some of the text was not translated into English. This is a great book to read when the weather is gloomy and dismal outside, with a nice cup of tea.read more

Jane is a poor, plain, orphan who eventually finds a job working for Mr. Rochester, who she falls in love with. But right before her life seems to be working out for the best, secrets tear apart everything, and she is forced to move on and start over.This novel, if dry at times, is excellent, and rightfully considered a classic. The preserverance of this strong-willed heroine is amazing! I would definatly encourage my students to read this book, as a whole class assignment, group novel, or an individual read. It would be useful only for its cannon-esque story, but would also be a good study of female characters and roles.read more

My only regret about this book is that I didn't read it sooner. I never expected one book to contain so much drama, suspense, and heartbreak. I literally couldn't put it down. One of the best classics I have ever read.read more

I generally don't re-read books - there are too many books and too short a lifetime to bother re-reading any but the best books. However, I just finished reading Jane Eyre for the fourth or fifth time.This is a stunningly timeless book. The emotions Jane experiences are so real, and so well-portrayed, that my heart breaks every time I read it. I cried during the sad parts, even after reading the book several times. Despite the chasm of years and culture that separates me from Jane, clearly some things about love and human nature never change.It's especially fun reading this after reading Jasper Fforde's The Eyre Affair.

It is a classic novel about two people in love and their struggle to find each other. It is a well-developed story, complete with details and explanations of motives which delight the reader on every page. Secrets and surprises are hidden between the romantic passages and simple life lessons of poverty and humility are taught. Sure to bring a tear to your eye, this book is one of the best classic novels you could read. It will definitely be added to my list of favorites!

I re-read this after reading it in college over 20 years ago. This edition is an example of what good, creative marketing can do. Even though this edition is a paperback, the cover is designed to look like an old, musty leather-bound book. Dame Darcy's gothic comic-style illustrations add a whole new dimension to the experience of reading this book. It reminded me why I loved illustrations in books so much when I was a kid.
