About the Author

The eldest of the three Bront? sisters, Charlotte is best known for her novel Jane Eyre, which was published under the pseudonym Currer Bell. Bront? s works were revolutionary for their time, reflecting a truthfulness about love and relationships that was not common in Victorian-era England. While Jane Eyre was, and continues to be, her most popular work, Charlotte Bront? published numerous works during her short life, including juvenilia, poetry, and the novels Shirley and Villette. Charlotte Bront? died in 1855, outliving both of her sisters, Anne and Emily. Collectively, the Bront? sisters novels are considered literary standards that continue to influence modern writers.

I'm a guy and I'm the only guy in a single ladies' book club. We read this and I was more into it than they were. Jane has a great heart for the choices she had to make.

If you haven't read it in a while, it might be time for a re-read. Jane Eyre is modern in that she is remarkably strong-minded, she loves passionately, and she learns to accept her less-than-perfect looks. She makes something of herself despite tremendous obstacles, in a time when educated women of the peasant class were not at all common. All this and the book has a delicious dark mystery to savor. I had to take off a star, though, for the dismissive treatment of mental illness. Of course, that is the way things were in those times, but it is painful to be reminded of how mental illness strains the capacity to be and to be treated as human.

Jane Eyre is a classic that I have enjoyed rereading for, literally, decades! My first read of Jane Eyre was when I was in high school. My most recent reread occurred this past month! I am as captivated by the characters and events now as I was in the late 1950"s!

This is one of my favorite stories. Jane Eyre is a beautifully written and inspirational story about hardships, sacrifice, love, and loss. Narrated by the most resilient heroin I know. If you want to sit down with a truly good book this is it!

I've heard about "Jane Eyre" for years. It's a definite classic. But though I told myself that I'd read it one day, all kinds of other books popped up to be read first. But when I discovered this was free on the Kindle, I finally got a copy. And after reading it, the book seemed to say "What took you so long?" This is well deserved of the description "classic". The words just flowed easily (and those I didn't quite get, I could easily look up using the Kindle's dictionary feature) and the story pulled me along, wanting to find out what happens next.

I like how she involved me in the story, at times talking directly to me and making points so that I would see what she was getting at. The only thing I didn't like was that she would name different places, but never actually give their names, just the first letter and a dash, such as "The coach dropped me off at S-, as I had no money to go further." It's like that all through the book. If you don't want to put any real names to places, so that your story can't be found on an actual map, at least make something up. Other than that, I really liked the book.

I never thought I'd find myself really going for a romance book, but this surprised me. It started when Jane was but a small child and takes her through growing up and falling in love, then the story changes, of course, and everything gets mixed up. I highly recommend this one.

Well, I'm another reader who rates this 5 stars. I remember reading this as a young girl and enjoying it immensely but I got so much more out of it this classic the second time around.

I admired Jane's integrity, her strength and her ability to forgive in a world that was by no means "kind."

I've been on a roll lately with my "classics" reading, there have been some very good reads and Jane Eyre is among "the best".

A novel with a strong and resilient heroine, a dark and brooding hero, wonderfully gothic tones and an air of sinister malevolence........what's not to love?

About 50 years ago I read this book and remember really liking it a lot, so when I recently received a Kindle as a gift, I decided to revisit it. I think I loved it more now than I did then. Some of the vocabulary, being the writing of the time, is a little difficult but you don't even really have to look up the words to get the idea being expressed. Once I got to a certain point, I had to finish it. It really is one of those romances and adventures that is a timeless treasure. By the way, my husband tried watching a movie version of it one evening and I left the room, the entire first part of the book was missing. Moral of the story, if you really like the book, don't watch the movie. It just doesn't translate.

It's hard to imagine a better gothic romance than "Jane Eyre" -- gloomy vast houses, mysterious secrets, and a brooding haunted man with a dark past.

In fact, Charlotte Bronte's classic novel has pretty much everything going for it -- beautiful settings, a passionate romance tempered by iron-clad morals, and a heroine whose poverty and lack of beauty only let her brains and courage shine brighter. And it's all wrapped in the misty, haunting atmosphere of a true gothic story -- madwoman in the attic and all.

Jane Eyre was an orphan, abused and neglected first by relatives, then by a boarding school run by a tyrannical, hypocritical minister. But Jane refuses to let anyone shove her down -- even when her saintly best friend dies from the wretched conditions.

But many years later, Jane moves on by applying to Thornfield Hall for a governess position, and gets the job. She soon becomes the teacher and friend to the sprightly French girl Adele, but is struck by the dark, almost haunted feeling of her new home.

Then she runs into a rather surly horseman -- who turns out to be her employer, Mr. Rochester, a cynical, embittered man who spends little time at Thornfield. They are slowly drawn together into a powerful love, despite their different social stations -- and Rochester's apparent attentions to a shallow, snotty aristocrat who wants his wealth and status.

But strange things are happening at Thornfield -- stabbings, fires, and mysterious laughter. Jane and Rochester finally confess their feelings to each other, but their wedding is interrupted when Rochester's dark past comes to light. Jane flees into the arms of long-lost family members, and is offered a new life -- but her love for Rochester is not so easily forgotten...
