Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë Book Summary

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Charlotte Brontë’s classic is like three novels in one. Above all, it’s a haunting Gothic tale set in an ancient and remote manor house, a story full of suspense, terror, supernatural encounters, and twisted family secrets. But Jane Eyre is also a dark romance in which the road to true love is rife with potholes, as well as a coming-of-age story, tracing a heroine’s development from a shy, isolated teen into a confident woman.

When we first meet Jane, she’s just been sent by her cruel aunt to a boarding school with an even crueler headmaster. But circumstances quickly improve for Jane, whose headstrong nature bucks the social norms of the time. She becomes a teacher and starts working for the brooding, mysterious Mr. Rochester. Jane eventually falls for her employer, but he’s hiding a secret - and it’s a doozy. Brontë’s novel is, quite simply, a page-turner.

Jane Eyre (Charlotte Brontë) Book Reviews

Different than your average classicIf you had to read only ONE classic, read Jane Eyre. I’m not a fan of classical literature (before this book) but I decided to start reading this and give it a try. The themes that are touched in this book are so related to our modern culture, I definitely see what people mean when they say it’s written ahead of its time. I do have to say after some time after the middle it started getting slightly slower but you definitely get over that quick and it doesn’t deserve a lower rating because of that..Score: 5/5

A great readA passionate book written in eloquent prose. Only implacable stone would be unmoved as you live through life's sorrows and bliss with these characters. Excellently written and a must read..Score: 5/5

Perfectly woven love story and life journeyCharlotte Bronte unfolds a greatly knitted blanket of life and romance. Her product starts out with cruelty and hopelessness but the reader begins to see quickly it is this trial that forms a finer heart in Jane whose path is singular into the arms of Mr Rochester. Charlotte’s eloquence is musical and just as important as her content. Her words create a vivid imagery of Jane’s surroundings and how Jane felt about them which would influence the reader’s mood. She addresses the societal pressures and expectations, ridiculing their existence in sincerity choosing people who have more enlightened things to say than those who speak highly of their own looks and societal status. A favorite re-read!.Score: 5/5

Jane Eyre ReviewWow!! A beautifully written book that had me captivated from start to finish. The simplicity and innocence of this book is wonderful for an audience of all ages. Ms. Charlotte has a gifted way to make one feel, see, and sense the characters and the surroundings. Truly a remarkable book. I feel that many women can look at Jane as a model of strength. Her determination to fulfill her purpose in life and reluctance to subject herself to a superior made her all the more admirable. She sought equality and was rewarded with equality and love. A model for the ages. Overall a great read!!!.Score: 5/5

Read this book!!!Some time ago when I was little I wanted to read this book but I stopped halfway through thinking that it’s boring and not worth my time. Seven years later I tried to give it another try. The beginning wasn’t as exciting and interesting but the second half of the book gets crazy. Once you get through about 150 pages it’s impossible to stop. It gets extremely interesting and very emotional. 100% worth your time..Score: 5/5

Good Book!This is a great book for leisure reading. There’s a ton of underlying themes that you can delve further into. Jane’s development is wonderful to see develop throughout the piece. Friendly heads up: The actual book is broken into a series of three books or parts. This one is not. Do not let that throw you..Score: 5/5

Page TURNER.I picked up this book when I was bored. I decided to give it a try and I’m glad I read it. It’s starts off a bit slow, but one needs to understand Jane’s childhood in order to understand the person she is and becomes. It is my favorite book, I love all the characters especially Mr. Rochester. The character development is amazing and I absolutely could not put it down once I started reading it. A true classic I will never forget and will definitely read again..Score: 5/5

Great Book!I read a Hampton Brown version which left out a lot of detail but it was still interesting... When I came across this book I saw that it was much detailed it informed the reader about Janes childhood and told what happened.. Overall I would rate this 5 star classics . Definitely one of my favorite. The movie was terrible with Mia W. & Michael F. I watched a older version of Jane Eyre on YouTube It was like a episode series and it went by the book not the whole thing. I like the ending the ending in the book is really deep and thoughtful...Score: 5/5

Jane Eyre- truly a delight!Absolutely beautiful and what a treat to hear my favorite actress read. Her amazing ability to change characters with a simple accent was incredible!.Score: 5/5

Jane EyreAs a man this love story surprisingly moved my heart in love and devotion to my wife. As a Christian man my heart was moved and drawn to Charlotte Bronte's Lord and Sovereign. I would recommend this classic highly to all. There is a reason this is a classic..Score: 5/5

Jane EyreI could not put this book down. Literally. Usually, I take my phone with me everywhere I go, so that I don't misplace it, but on days where I was busy with tasks other than reading, I had to force myself not to bring my phone to the bathroom just to pee, because I would surely go on my iBook app and read more of Jane Eyre and get caught in her romantic story. I loved every minute of it!.Score: 5/5

Jane eyreBooks come in all forms but this one I couldnt confine it to one form it is a great classic and very diffrent than what im used to I had great thoughts on the story line so i'd say an overall great book for teen-young adults who like to read.Score: 5/5

Jane EyreThe first half of the text was wonderful. However, Jane's departure from Thornfield(?) was an escape thoughtless, foolish, and out of character. Ms. Bronte's writing seemed to have suffered from the effects of that near death experience. The charm, pace and rhythm of her writing lessened. Was it the presence of St. John? Then there was the Rev St John carryover effect on Mr. Rochester. Too contrived! But I'm glad I read it. One question remains, was there more than a first born?.Score: 4/5

Every Teenage Girl Should Read this Book!I absolutely loved this book, and I can easily say that it is my favorite classic novel of all time. First, let's start with the main character, Jane Eyre. She is the perfect role-model for all young girls. She's smart, sensible, kind, modest, and I love how she's not ready to just throw away her life and dignity to a man, even if she loves him with all her heart. I loved her independent spirit. In short, instead of reading Twilight, which is a novel with a crappy, and weak heroine,Bella Swan,read Jane Eyre, and you won't regret it. My only complaint was that the beginning of Jane Eyre was rather slow,but once she met Mr. Rochester and came to Thornfield I was hooked!.Score: 5/5

A Beautiful StoryI had the opportunity to read this in high school, but sadly the class decided on another. But still, I’m glad I didn’t read it then, because I don’t think I would have enjoyed it, or appreciated it. As I read it, I found some interesting parallels to my own life in Jane’s story. Some of her hardships and views are remarkably similar to my own. I love the fact that Jane found faith and a relationship with God in her youth, although I didn’t form my relationship with Him until my early 30s. In the end, this was a very good, wonderful, worth-while read..Score: 5/5

Most wonderfulI was so happy when Jane was finally reunited with her Edward. I became so enraptured by the emotions of the novel and lost in time with Jane that I felt such a sad parting when I turned the last page..Score: 5/5
