My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have seen so many versions of the movie, and each was a little different. I wanted to read the book to see how the story actually goes.

I enjoyed the book a lot, but I realized how so many of the stories in the book were missed in each of the movies. Some of the movies combined several stories. This is understandable, since the book was so long. The story in the book makes a lot more sense.

The book is definitely worth reading, but it does take a long time to get through.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This quick read was fun. I hadn’t realized that I was familiar with the whole story. I thought I only knew the part that Disney had covered. It was a wonderful book, full of imagination, and I could see the images in the book as I read.

AGE 16 “Jane Eyre” BY CHARLOTTE BRONTË

Best Books to Read from Ages 1-100

Jane Eyre – Charlotte Brontë

I didn’t read Jane Eyre until I was an adult.

I read this book for the first time this year. It showed up on several lists, including the PBS list, Classics, the age list, the BBC list, and many more.

I loved the book, but I loved knowing what all the references meant, after all the years of not really understanding them.

This book should definitely be on a must read list. I loved it.
