Teen Book Review: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

janeeyre-thumb-323x500-9866.jpgWe've gotten another book review, this one from Molly.  It's on "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte!  Take it away Molly:

Jane Eyre is a penniless, lonely orphan who lives with her cruel aunt and cousins. When she is eight, she is sent away to Lowood School. She is a quick student and spends ten years at Lowood in relative happiness. But she grows weary of Lowood's confines, and advertizes for a position as governess. She is hired by Mrs Fairfax, the housekeeper at Thornfield Hall, to teach the master's ward, Adele. She soon realizes that there is something mysterious about Thornfield, but all thought of anything sinister is put out of her mind by the arrival of Mr Rochester, the master of the house. Against her better judgment Jane is drawn to him, and dares to think he feels something for her in return. But Mr Rochester has a terrible secret, a secret that could destroy all Jane's dreams of happiness and love.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed the Twilight saga and is looking for something a bit more challenging. I like Jane a bit more than Bella; I think Jane is a more self sacrificing heroine. I really enjoyed it.

Rating: Love it


Thanks Molly!
