I began this book on a plane ride to Chicago. The man next to me said it must be pretty good because I didn't put it down once the entire flight! And the beginning was so good! But the middle got a bit boring and thankfully the end finished strong.
Jane Eyre, in short, is a woman who stands her moral ground and stays true to her heart. Knowing this book was published in 1847 makes me like it more than I might have because it's so progressive. I don't want to spoil anything for you, just go read it yourself!
Overall, this is not an "easy" book to read but it is a true classic. There are many parts I enjoyed and I'd rate it a 3.5 out of 5. I really wanted to love this book. Perhaps I'm not a classic type of gal?
