Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte -- a book review/recommendation
Jane Eyre ranks as one of the greatest and most perennially popular works of English fiction. Although the poor but plucky heroine is outwardly of plain appearance, she possesses an indomitable spirit, a sharp wit and great courage. She is forced to battle against the exigencies of a cruel guardian, a harsh employer and a rigid social order. All of which circumscribe her life and position when she becomes governess to the daughter of the mysterious, sardonic and attractive Mr Rochester. However, there is great kindness and warmth in this epic love story, which is set against the magnificent backdrop of the Yorkshire moors.
This story just flows perfectly. However I was annoyed because it's such a well known novel that I already knew of some of the mystery's. That was just me and if you haven't heard anything of the story then I think you'll really enjoy all the surprises!. I think that these classic novels are all basis for today's love story writers.
I always feel bad because I usually have to write in such a hurry and I always think well that didn't help determine if the book was good or bad. So, unless I have enough time to put into a proper review I'm going to just start recommending books and saying on a scale of 1-10 how good it was! So, I give this book a 9! I loved it and was entertained the whole way through.
