Review # 11: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Description: (From book jacket)
     "Bronte's infamous Gothic novel tells the story of orphan Jane, a child of unfortunate circumstances. Raised and treated badly by her aunt and cousins and eventually sent away to a cruel boarding school, it is not until Jane becomes a governess at Thornfield that she finds happiness. Meek, measured, but determined, Jane soon falls in love with her brooding and stormy master, Mr Rochester, but it is not long before strange and unnerving events occur in the house and Jane is forced to leave Thornfield to pursue her future."
     This is one of my all-time favorite books, so I will be succinct and to the point. Charlotte Bronte was an amazing author who could make characters like strong-willed, independent, lively, Jane Eyre and contrast them with brooding, mysterious, and intense characters like Mr. Rochester. I admire her adroit talent with the pen and how she captured and wove a story such as Jane Eyre. This is a story of enthralling passion, romance, love, mystery, and the human condition; what's not to love. 

Rating:  On the Run (4.5/5)
