Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

March 28, 2019

Jane Eyre is now one of my favourite books.

It's one I'd always wanted to try if only for the accolade of having read it. I didn't think I was going to love it this much.

Getting to see Jane grown from child to accomplished woman was such a wonderful narrative experience. She developed so much and really came into her own. It was easy to like her and sympathise with her. I appreciate the fact that she stuck to her morals and didn't let anyone, despite how tempting an offer they gave her, to tear her from that path.

I found each character very unique within the novel. They had a function in Jane's life and fulfilled it. I particularly loved how Adele interacted with her, and honestly every character. She was such an adorable little girl.

There isn't a great deal of action in the conventional sense but I still found myself gasping and shocked at certain reveals. I was compelled to keep reading and at the same time didn't want the story to end! I can see myself rereading this one in a few years.
