On page two she is masturbating after being stimulated by the rocking motion of her carriage. On page three she is recalling the pleasure of being licked off by a fellow schoolgirl. I didn't get to page four.

Honestly, I really enjoyed all but about the last twenty pages of this book. It was well-written, felt at least somewhat-true to the story (although, really, lecherous Rochester didn't resonate for me), and kept me up late reading. But the end....ruined the whole thing. It felt forced, didn't really even make sense, and wasn't satisfying. I felt disappointed that I'd wasted so much time reading the rest of the book, just to have it ruined by a lame endeavor to include some S&M.

Seriously, this book is not sexy enough to warrant reading for its own sake, and the ending is so so bad, it's really not worth reading at all.

Not recommended.

This is the hottest Jane Eyre version I ever read. Why? Because after perusing the entire thing, I flung it into the woodstove. The 336 pages and cover created some really good BTU's and the heat output was the absolutely best thing about the book.

Oh, about the BOOK? What about the content? (I mean, other than ash and carbonized material?) Well, here's what this book is: the author took the actual text of Jane Eyre (minus the childhood at Gateshead, almost all of Lowood School, except for some gratuitous student girl-on-girl action, and it ends before she runs into St. John Rivers.) Then the author penciled erotic (sorta) scenes wherever an opportunity for sex could, based on the novel, conceivably happen--naughty charades, encounters in stairwells, on horseback (really? On a horse? All I can do on an English saddle is barely cling on for dear life to the beast.)

There was one shining moment. That was the scene where Jane goes into the library as the newly-hired governess. The one unlocked cabinet of "light literature" deemed suitable to the needs of the governess has books bound in red and gold calf but lo, one of the books hides a naughty pamphlet that just happens to fall out, placed there by the mischievous Mr. Rochester, that incorrigible roue. Now, that was genuinely funny. The sex is not sexy and it's what you'd imagine, a smorgasbord of this and that, so everyone's favorite fantasy gets included, and not very well-written at that. And leaving out the St. John Rivers part, well, that could really be kinky. But the author more or less gives up at the revelation of the bigamous marriage and Jane runs off; The End. I don't blame her. I gave up long before.

I enjoy literature remixes, which can be done very very well. Mystery series featuring Mary Holmes, the wife of Sherlock, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies -- there have been a whole host of these which are captivating and yet respectful of the characters created by the original authors. This "novel" (scare quotes because it really doesn't qualify as a novel) is merely exploitative. Apparently attempting to cash in on the popularity of the "50 Shades of Grey" series, the author, whoever s/he is, creates a Jane Eyre who seems more like a horny teenage boy than a three-dimensional character. Mr. Rochester is into S/M which presumably makes the plot more "modern" but really reveals itself for the pointless attempt at making cash on the latest craze in publishing that it is.

This is not erotica. Anais Nin wrote beautiful erotica. This is not laying bare Jane Eyre. This character bears no resemblance to the real character crafted by Charlotte Bronte so carefully. This is not worth buying.

I do not recommend.

Format: Paperback
Jane Eyre Laid Bare is Eve Sinclair's rendition of the classic story. The only problem with my reading of this version is that I read the original and watched the black and white movie starring Orson Welles when I was much younger and fell in love with Jane's strong personality and Mr. Rochester's brooding persona. I always thought of this story as a romantic Gothic novel, and loved the different scenes in Jane's life.

Everything seemed forced in this book, especially since the Sinclair is trying to sell an erotic tale. Jane's schoolgirl flashbacks, her 'alone' times, how the title came to be, and even the big surprise at the end of how Rochester lured Jane into marriage because of his dom (yes, he had one), seemed like the author made piecemeal of the events just to shock the reader with an erotic telling of the classic story. I wasn't shocked; I was disappointed from lack of likability of any of the characters.

This book is the classic Charlotte Bronte novel rewritten in more modern English by Eve Sinclair (a pseudonym for an author who published other novels). The story has several twists, as if it is revealing sexual information that was not permitted to be printed in 1847 England, when the original novel was written. Thus there are scenes of young Jane Eyre and her female friends masturbating and exploring each other's body in the boarding school where she was raised for about a half dozen years; the sexual exploits of Mr. Rochester and his rich friends, and the surprise ending. Thus people who dislike reading about sex and those who don't approve of distorting classics will not like this book. However, the plot is well-developed, the characters vividly portrayed, the story moves along swiftly, it is easy to read, and the sexual parts of the book are essential to the plot.

Jane Eyre is a poor teen-ager, a virgin, with no experience or knowledge of sex beyond what she experiences with other girls who are like her. She takes a job with a very rich sexually experienced man, Mr. Rochester, who is some twenty years her senior, old enough to be her father, appears to be very domineering, and who acts in this fashion with her. She falls deeply in love with him, and he tells her that he loves her as well. The story's surprise ending is very appropriate for this version. In short, if one doesn't mind some explicit but not gratuitous sex in a rewritten classic novel, I think that they will enjoy this version of the Jane Eyre tale.
