A lot of people usually don’t review classics for some reason…I don’t know why. Probably because they think its a waste of time or they think “what’s the point? It’s a classic, not like some erotic romance book that deserves a review.” No,offense to any of you.

I think Jane Eyre deserves a full review in my style…oh yeah…with pictures and everything :D. Just because it was written in the 19th century doesn’t mean that I can’t write a review for it.

5 amazing stars!!

β€œI would always rather be happy than dignified.” 

Jane Eyre is a truly excellent book! There is something about it that leaves you thinking “this book is PERFECT.” Charlotte Bronte did an amazing job writing this. I don’t know how else to explain this but I found the writing to be precious. This book is like a jewel to me. I loved how smart and defending Jane was and how Mr. Rochester was dark and proud. Damn! I loved all the characters. They were written in such a way that just left you amazed, no matter if they were as horrible as Mrs. Reed or scary as the supposedly Sarah Poole.


Jane is a plain heroine. Yep…plain. Not beautiful, fancy, glorious, and how heroines from books are. She is small, quiet, and smart.
She was treated horrible by her aunt Mrs.Reed and her cousins and was sent to Lowood school when she was eight. 10 years pass. 10 years of meeting Helen and Miss Temple and learning and being independent. One day she decides that she wants to be free! She decides to look for jobs as a governess…and that’s when the invitation to Thornfield Hall comes…


Jane is asked to teach a little girl at the haunted, dark looking house. But little does she know that the man who lives there is the love of her life…


Mr. Rochester is a dark man. He has a rude attitude but a very dark secret.


As the book goes on you find that there is a mystery in the house, secrets start to reveal, hearts are broken, and true love is found again.

For those of you who haven’t read Jane Eyre… you should. It is such a beautiful deep moving book it leaves you shocked and amazed.

I loved the romance between Jane and Mr. Rochester. It was quite slow and calm if you know what I mean and it was heartbreaking. I LOVED THEM together. The ending was so SAD but then I cried tears of joy.


In conclusion Jane Eyre is a must read. Everybody should read. I hope that my review described how much I loved this book.

This book deserves a trillion applause’s:

  1. Haha!I review classics,although I try to keep them spoiler-free!
    I wanted to buy it,but hesitated a bit and eventually bought another book. (I’m usually short on funds,so I have to make sure that my money is being spent on books I will really love).However,I promised myself that I will buy Jane Eyre in the future.

    Sadly,the movie was playing on TV one day,and the story was so enticing that I ended watching it!So…now I know everything about Jane Eyre and won’t buy it any time soon.But given it is a classic and great story,I think I’ll get it in Folio edition next year.

    You’re totally right for loving the book so much! πŸ™‚


  2. I totally agree with you. Jane Eyre is my all time favorite book and I wish I could read it again for the first time. The best movie version – in my opinion – is with Timothy Dalton as Mr. Rochester. It stays pretty true to the novel. Great pictures, fun post.
