The novel Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë is a coming of age love story about a young girl named Jane Eyre who goes on a journey to seek love and independence. Janes life is full of hardships, and throughout the novel she tries to overcome obstacles. Jane is abused as a child by her aunt Mrs. Reed and her three children who she lives with at Gateshead Hall. Jane soon goes off to school at Lowood to escape her cruel life. As Jane grows up, she is given the position as governess of Thornfield Hall where she falls in love with her master, Mr. Rochester. A major theme of the novel concerns money and the effect it has on an individuals happiness. The events at Gateshead Hall, at Thornfield Hall, and the inheritance she receives from her uncle is proof that money cannot secure happiness for the main character, Jane. This novel should be read if you are a fan of the classics or even if you need a book to read for a rainy day. You won't be disappointed at all.

I usually don't read historical fiction books, but this novel was fantastic! Since it's not YA, which I'm also used to, I will admit that it was hard for me to read. It was also very long. But, the plot is creative and digs down deep. I loved the characters, and how the author portrayed them. I really recommend this book if you are an advanced reader, and have a lot of free time to read.

Jane Eyre is my all time favorite book, it literally changed my life. This is abook about second chances and finding your true love despite all the obstacles. I love that Jane Eyre is a plain ordinary girl who is not particularly pretty. Jane Eyre grows up in a harsh environment but no matter what life throws at her she perseveres and in the end prevails.

Jane Eyre has not had a very easy childhood. Her aunt, who was forced to take her in, and her cousins abused Jane as a child and then she was sent to an institution for female orphans where they were given starvation level rations and kept under poor conditions. Life gets a litter better for Jane as she enters her late teenage years. She gets a job as a governess at Thornfield Manor to take care of a little girl under 10 years old, named Adele. Here she meets the owner, Mr Rochester, who is stern, abrupt, mysterious and not very handsome, as Jane frankly tells hiim.
Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre is a great romance novel. Every guy I've talked to who read this book doesn't like it and I understand where they're coming from-Jane Eyre is geared towards the female audience and I like it because its a great romance novel.

Jane Eyre by Charlote Bronte is one of the romantic book i have read, out of quit a lot that i remember and still like. One of the parts i liked a lot from the book was the end though i was not happy it ended. I like the end due to how Mr.Ronchester and Jane finally got married and Mr.Ronchester regained back is sight. Some people might not like this book a)because the do not understand the way the sentence are formedand b)they do not like too too romantic books But i say if you like all type of litrature you are suure to lurv this book.(oh it is quit a long book too 501 pages to be exact)

This story was a very old book. It's dialogue is old and much different from the books that are written these days.
The storyline was grasping and made me want to keep reading it didn't take me long.

It's about a woman named Jane as you may have gathered from the book's title. She was left with her uncle and his wife and grew up to hate her. She became a teacher and stayed with People as a governess. Later there is a big twist wehere she falls in love and finds out a mystery that was once thought to be a myth but is now known to be true. This "myth" changes everything.

This book being from the Victorian Era, a time that is so far ago, you'd have to expect and adjust to the setting. And what a beautiful setting it was. Everything from the themes conveyed to the poetic prose was beautiful.

Though what irked me is the true romance. One, in my head I never truly got over their huge age difference, thus twisting this love story into something that I don't appreciate much. I'm not at all addressing Bronte's writing, that was wonderful, but it just became slightly hard for me to understand their relationship.

Overall, this book is great with literary elements. I guess I was just somewhat sick of a book that talked about romance, and this one did it. I would recommend reading it because it's a classic and teaches the reader many things. Try it and give it a go :).

A timeless love story of breathtaking measure. jane Eyre was the first of it's kind. Unusuall to write about women at all, it was compleatly unheard of to write about women like Jane - orphaned, poor, avradge in looks and intelligence. However, ther's something unusuall about Jane. Her keen imagination and directness make her a facinating character, and her love for Mr. Rochester will leave you breathless. But will the time, difference in class, and what is expected of them tear Jane apart from the one true love she never really had in the first place?

Another amazing classic! It holds the same romance that books like Pride and Prejudice do but it is more mature, and slightly darker. While not anywhere near as dark nd tragic as her sister Emily bronte's Wuthering heights, Charlotte still throws plenty of stones at the main characters.

The book isn't a major feel good book, but it will make you appreciate the hurdles love can jump. If you want a book that isn't full of fluffy lovey-dovey characters and plot but still want a good romance, this is the book to read.
