Review

Where Bronte hints, Rigel explores. The tension felt in Bronte's Eyre, is ten fold in Rigel's ... Private sitting room conversations are made public. Touches become more intimate, and looks become more brazen. "My Mr. Rochester" isn't in the realm of New Adult (despite my description of it) instead it's the version all classic lovers know was buried behind an era's expectations. ~ KindleObsessed

From the Author

My Mr. Rochester (Jane Eyre Retold) is a retelling of the classic Brontë tale set in a future utopia ~ or dystopia, depending on your point of view.

My Mr. Rochester is presented in five novella-length episodes. Jane Eyre is perfect for the serial form which accommodates the longer, more complex original narrative and inclusion of all of Jane's "adventures" ~ including the St. John Rivers segment. I think of it like a BBC miniseries.

The dynamic between Jane and Rochester is erotic at its center, and I've explored that aspect of their relationship as well.

I loved Jane Eyre. The book, and the musical. I never did see the movie or TV treatments, and I don't usually, with books that I love. Seeing the film always ruins it for me. The illusion has been destroyed. I didn't even go to the Harry Potter movies, or The Hunger Games. I want to keep the characters in my imagination, where they belong. The movies are always disappointing.

I like LK Rigel, and loved the Space Junque series. So, I checked out what else she had, and was instantly grabbed by the description of this series. Jane Eyre retold, but taking place in a semi-dystopian USA, after some portion (it's never really specified) secedes from the mother country and forms a new one, New Judah, formed around conservative Christian doctrine. This new society eschews the internet and computers, most vehicles, and provocative clothing. (Think Amish here, but without their kindness.) The use of electricity is rare, and expensive. Clothing and furniture mimic Victorian styles. It's a strange combination of steampunk and Margaret Atwood, in the Handmaid's Tale, but without steampunk's love of gadgetry.

Rigel fleshes out this world thoroughly, despite each portion of the series being somewhat short. She does this efficiently by having relatively few settings that are well described. One aspect of the story that I loved was that she mixed up cultures. Her creation is primarily Victorian, but the outside world (the rest of the US) is still wired, and in the one train that travels back and forth between the two countries, she has the opportunity to describe this. Passengers are divided between the harsh, conservative New Judeans, and the modern Americans, with their tablets, garish fashions, music, and so forth. The contrast is exciting.

We've all read Jane Eyre, we all know how the story goes, typical romance. So far this one is anything but!
Set in the future, but not too far, parts of the country have seceded into a new country full of the 'Righteous'. They eschew most modern technology like the internet and electricity and the list of banned books is outrageous.
Cannot wait to read the next one!

I didn't realize when I began reading this book that the story takes place In our future. Part of the United States has seceded to maintain a very conservative society based on early nineteenth century England. This allows a seamless meld of both classic Jane Eyre and a more modern vibe. More modern allows more overt sex and women's rights themes while the conservative locale maintains the classic romance.
I enjoyed this book very much as I am a huge fan of the original and have retread it many times and I think I've seen every movie based on the book.

I’ve always identified with Jane Eyre, the downtrodden heroine who’s constantly reminded how plain she is….yet manages to triumph over poverty, hardships and despair. The triumph part I’m not so good at, but I do tend to wallow in misery, like any good reader of English Literature or supporter of BBC or PBS. Thus I love any adaptation of Bronte’s writing and when I read that one of my favorite new discoveries – the writer L.K. Rigel – was doing an dated version of Jane Eyre entitled “My Mr. Rochester”, I was thrilled. Yet a part of me was wondering if she , or anyone could actually do it. She did, and it is magnificent. The book begins in 2081, and Jane is 13 years old. Though it set in the future, through plot twists, turns, and settings, it feels like the 1800s even though there are such things as the internet (in some places). Rigel’s writing style perfectly fits into the Edwardian mode though it flows as easily as the conversation you had with your best friend just this morning. This is the first part in a five part series. I am waiting for the second part as anxiously as I am waiting for the fourth season of Downton Abbey. It is just that good.

Jane Eyre is one of those classics that I love to hate. Jane can be so clueless that I just want to shake her, and Mr Rochester is an ass for how he treats her; I always find myself wishing that she'd tell him to stuff it and walk away in the end. But the book is compulsively readable; every time I go to look something up in it, I end up reading huge chunks, because it's just that good.

I can't tell yet from just the first installment how closely this alternate-history retelling will stick to the details of the original, but it definitely shares the "compulsively readable" aspect. I found the world the author has created to be fascinating, and the details are revealed gradually, not in big information dumps. Jane is an interesting narrator, not perfect nor infallible, in a way that feels true to the original. I found myself putting other things aside to finish this first part, and I'm looking forward to future installments.

This book is definitely Jane Eyre, set in a dystopian future, without a great deal of variance from the original "Jane Eyre." I have a penchant for rewritten fairy tales and literary classics, so I'm inclined to enjoy that kind of book or movie, as opposed to being offended because the author "ripped off" a plot from another author. The author is a good writer, you don't get bogged down in typographical errors, atrocious grammar or characters who "sneer" every word that they speak. But I was a little disappointed in the dystopian world. It feels a bit too much like Jane Eyre's world -- not really enough "future" feel to give it a truly unique twist. And Jane's story, so far, doesn't vary enough from the original to make it worth paying $12 to get the other four books. I may attempt to find the series at the local library, however. I'm curious enough for that. If I do read the rest of the series, and discover some new surprises, I'll be back to change this to a more favorable review.
