  "A Novel that Takes Time to Read, but is Worth It" by RockinRenee (see profile) 06/29/12

Our book club decided that it wanted to read a classic and Jane Eyre was the one that was chosen. I was very happy because it has to be tied with Frankenstein with my favorite book of all time. This is a beautiful novel with great characters and poetic writing. The only problem anyone had with this was that it was not an easy read. Being written in the 19th century there are very long sentences and paragraphs describing every detail of every scene. But the way that Bronte paint with words is absolutely beautiful. Just about everyone rated this very highly. It's not only the story of a sweeping romance, but of a woman finding her way in an unforgiving world. Groundbreaking as well, for it's portrayal of a strong and independent woman. Definitely a good idea for any book club that wants to sample a classic.

 
  "Jane Eyre, the First Feminist! " by seashell723 (see profile) 03/23/16

Our book club unanimously LOVED "Jane Eyre"! We loved the exquisate writing, the very developed characters, the many issues of social class, religious persecution, child abuse, romance, adventure, lunacy, etc...something for everyone! We especially were fascinated by Jane as the first Feminist...her strong determination, independence, and moral compass were as current today as in the 1800s. Brave Jane Eyre...and bravo Charlotte Bronte!

  "A lovely classic" by [email protected] (see profile) 10/19/19

A classic romantic novel of love, struggles and heartaches. One of the best novels written and takes you back to a different time where people were proper and acted appropriately.
