    Jane Eyre makes me want to be a better person. Her goodness, her humility, her frankness, her passion, her fierce will and her moral compass are all inspiring. And yet, I also love her faults. Jane has a temper, she gets jealous, she fights back, and at times she is too obedient, es...

    SPOILER ALERT. YOU MAY NOT WANT TO READ THIS REVIEW IF YOU PLAN ON READING JANE EYRE. I read Jane Eyre for the first time as an adult and I can't help but feel sorry for every junior high or high school student who was forced to read this book. I thought getting through thi...

    Child neglect, near death, a dash of magical realism, the power of love, the powerlessness of the poor, sexual rivalry, mystery, madness and more. It is as powerful as ever - but is it really a love story, given Rochester's Svengali-tendencies, or is it a life story? His downfall ...

    I probably read this first when I was about 9 and loved books like What Katy Did at School and the Malory Towers Series. I'm not sure if I loved the books as any little girl might or because I wanted to go away to school to escape my mother/didn't want to go away to school be...

    Now I know why Charlotte Bronte said this of Jane Austen: "The passions are perfectly unknown to her: she rejects even a speaking acquaintance with that stormy sisterhood". I love Jane, but Charlotte REALLY knows how to write about passion, romantic or otherwise. If Jane?s ...

    [The picture disappeared which made the comments rather irrelevant.:] ?Oh course, Rush Limbaugh is nuts. In December 2007, on a radio show with an audience of 14.5 million, Limbaugh asked this question about the former first lady's presidential prospects, after an in...

    ?I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.? Okay, so high school Melanie did not appreciate Jane Eyre! But thankfully, many years later, and because of a few friend?s encouragement, I have seen the light and righted m...

    ??Jane, be still; don't struggle so like a wild, frantic bird, that is rending its own plumage in its desperation.? ?I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being, with an independent will; which I now exert to leave you.?? I am glad that in 184...

    Yes, I suppose you can view this book mostly as a love story. That's what I did at age 13 - but that's why I was left disappointed back then. Or you can view this as an story of formation of a strong and independent female protagonist, a nineteenth-century feminist...

    I often think of classics as "required reading," usually accompanied by a barely suppressed groan. Because, surely, they can't actually be any good. I'm not sure why I've always associated well-known and well-loved classics as such, but I suppose it must be the...

    FIVE REASONS WHY JANE EYRE WOULD NEVER BE A BESTSELLER IN OUR TIMES: 5. Four hundred-odd pages of purely descriptive writing 4. Overt religious themes and moral preaching 3. A plain-Jane heroine who stays plain. No makeovers to reveal a hitherto hidden prettiness that only needed an...

    One of the most beloved novels in history for many generations ; "Jane Eyre" is set in England in the 1800's . The story of a neglected girl orphan of that name who never gives up her dream of happiness, no matter how remote a possibility, this goal can ever be reached. ...

    I'm bumping Jane Eyre up to the full five stars on this reread. It has its Victorian melodramatic moments (horrible aunt! and cousins! (view spoiler)[mad wife secretly hidden away in the attic! heroine starving in the wilderness! (hide spoiler)] ), but overall I found this story o...

    I read this book back in High School. I hated it. I thought it was boring and stupid and all I wanted to do was spread the word that this book was terrible and no one should read it. I had it marked one star on Goodreads and it had a home on my least favorite shelf. Well, I have bee...

    For years I've been saying that Jane Eyre is my favorite novel of all time-- and that it is. The character of Jane is, to me, one of the most admirable and appealing fictional characters of all time. Poor and plain she may be, but her spirit is indomitable. In an era when wome...

    The kind of novel that makes one believe in love (again) - or at least desire to hold on to the illusion. Likely my favourite read for 2020. For the time being, just basking and swooning. inebriated. Speechless. I know it's out of fashion And a trifle uncool Bu...

    Reader, I gave it five stars. Please let me tell you why. Jane Eyre is the quintessential Victorian novel. It literally has everything that was typical of the period, but, unlike other novels, it has all the elements in one story. At the centre is the romance between Jane and Roch...

    "I love reading", says a 15-year-old girl in class today. This is so unusual that I smile like a maniac. "Really? I am so glad to hear that. What are you reading at the moment?" "Jane Eyre, and it is very hard to understand, but I am 100 pages into it...

    I am a very pretentious person. I try to seem ?hip? and ?cool? and ?relatable? and ?down with the teens? - and of course I totally am all of those things - but also I have my tendencies toward pretension. It?s who I am. Just last night I shuddered at the idea of po...

    The maddest Victorian love story ever written I recently discovered that Charlotte Bront was a masterful writer. In 1847 she crafted the story of the quite rebellious and strong-willed Jane Eyre, an orphan that sees a lot of death early in life and grows up in an abusive environ...
