Jane Eyre - My review


When I was looking the ebook version of this popular classic - Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - I found it to be free to download. I immediately downloaded it into my kindle and thought of reading it at a later date. But to my utter surprise, I found myself commence reading the book the same day itself. After reading the first few pages, I was not sure whether I would like to go forward and complete it. However, I decided to read few more pages and as I turned each page I found it quite interesting and wanted to read more and more, and didn’t want to put it down.

The writing is superb with memorable characters and fabulous descriptions. I loved the strong characteristics of Jane who was brought up in an orphanage – independent thinking, hard working, kind hearted, not being greedy and proud even after becoming suddenly rich, believes in herself and not doing something just to please others. I admire Jane for coming back to her first love Rochester when he was in his worst position and had nothing much to offer her, and her gladly deciding to become his life partner for the rest of his life. Another important point attracted me here is that each one’s thoughts in this book are remarkably and believably expressed.

I incredibly enjoyed reading this book. Even after finish reading the book, it leaves you thinking. The heroine of this book (Jane) is an ordinary looking girl, not very amazingly pretty and beautiful like other romantic heroines in the books we read, and still she stands out in the crowd of heroines, leaving an impression in the reader’s mind!!
