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.
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
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
Read this on vacation and fell absolutely in love. I definitely recommend this to you as an excellent piece of classic literature and also a tragic, but romantic story. Satisfying ending, but many twists and turns throughout the book. Please read this!55

Everything was perfect definitely would read this book over again, and 50 more times55
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
such a great book!!!55
