Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre Summary

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Charlotte Brontë’s classic is like three novels in one. Above all, it’s a haunting Gothic tale set in an ancient and remote manor house, a story full of suspense, terror, supernatural encounters, and twisted family secrets. But Jane Eyre is also a dark romance in which the road to true love is rife with potholes, as well as a coming-of-age story, tracing a heroine’s development from a shy, isolated teen into a confident woman.

When we first meet Jane, she’s just been sent by her cruel aunt to a boarding school with an even crueler headmaster. But circumstances quickly improve for Jane, whose headstrong nature bucks the social norms of the time. She becomes a teacher and starts working for the brooding, mysterious Mr. Rochester. Jane eventually falls for her employer, but he’s hiding a secret - and it’s a doozy. Brontë’s novel is, quite simply, a page-turner.

Book Reviews


One of my favorites5 star

Something about the character of Jane sticks with me. I’ve read this book several times now. I always find myself rooting for her, because she’s been the underdog her whole life. It’s definitely worth your time.55


A classic for a reason.5 star

I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. I feel like it’s written in a way that may not be as popular now yet, it is still well written. Worth reading.55

Captivating4 star

The writer did a very beautiful job captivating the reader with detail and imagination as a friend telling you a story. Although at times it’s very wordy, as Jane goes on and on…I liked it well. Touches plenty on religious beliefs but it was due to the times. Good read for a old classic.45
