"My favorite classic of all time. Jane Eyre has everything: strong, misfit heroine, domineering and mysterious man, attempted murder, suicide, fire, storms, beatings, death, sacrifice, and eventually, love."
"Another Bronte sister. It's a dark story of a domineering man and a selfish woman whose only redeeming quality is their love for each other. Their selfishness destroys the lives of everyone around them."
"Not many teenagers like this book, but it was one of my favorites. Amazing writing full of symbolism, allusions, and every other literary term. A story of the human heart losing itself to the darkness of the wilderness."
"As much as I dislike the main character for her selfishness and lack of moral values, this is a story about the double standard of Russian society at the time and its effect on a woman who just needed love and independence."
"Jane Austen was one of the most brilliant writers of her time and her stories still resonate today. Read all her books especially Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, and Emma. The movies are great, too."
