Charlotte Bronte, “Jane Eyre”

10 December 2011 1,219 views No Comment

Bleak, heart wrenching, desolate, glorious Jane Eyre.
She’s the original queen of bouncebackability and god bless her because she gets what she wants in the end. She is an inspirational role model.
I first tried to read this when I was nine years old, I didn’t finish and I forever remember it as a really challenging book. But in fact it’s a flowing, good read, with lots of interesting relationships, intelligent reflections and passion, as well as cold, bare board floors and drizzly moors.
Books like Wide Sargasso Sea have given me an alternative perspective on the main antagonist but, I’m sorry to say, not much more sympathy. I will always be on Jane’s side, and because I’m on her side I’m on Rochester’s side, tough old stick that he is.
