Review Detail4.0 2
I really liked Jane's character. She is already strong and independent (her family situation makes her so) and through her relationship with Nico, she learns what true love means. I wanted her to be happy, no matter what path she chose. As far as Nico, I couldn't figure out if I liked him or not. There was just something about him that I didn't connect with. I'm not sure why, maybe it is because I am not familiar with the original and I'm missing something. I didn't like how so much of his life was secret, even from Jane. I think I would have liked him more, had I known more about him from the beginning.
There are some drug and sexual references in this, so I can't recommend it to everyone. Overall, if you are a Jane Eyre fan, I think you will enjoy this. I think I will give the original another chance and see what happens.
