Review: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte


Okay, so I would so hate Rochester. What a girly man! Whine, swoon, aloof, brood, rinse, repeat!

But he was interesting. He was really, really interesting. And for all the interesting that is Rochester, Jane is ten times the interesting. Of course, it was tied up way, way too neatly toward the end for it to be a real gothic novel, but man, I enjoyed it. Also, this is one of the few books that I would prefer abridged. You could tell the same story, not lose any of the goodness, and have a book 2/3 the size.

Thanks to everyone told me to read this. It was way better than that Wuthering Heights nonsense!

KIMMY, the 1944 film version came out on DVD last month. And it stars Joan Fontaine! *love!*
