I really liked this book because it had so many surprises in it. this was one of my favorite classics. It is about a girl named Jane Eyre who grows up living in her aunt’s household. Her aunt and cousins really dislike her, so she really doesn’t have much companionship as a little girl. But when she goes to Thornfield, everything changes. I recommend this book for fast readers who like and can read really dense books.

I read this for a book report (9th grade English). My advice is either start reading it right away or pick another book. Despite the immense pressure I had to get this read, I really enjoyed the love story and the characters in the story.

Just read it. The story of Jane Eyre's life; her life as a child in school and her romance with Mr. Rochester.

Orphaned, unloved, poor as a church mouse, plain of face but with an indomitable spirit, Jane Eyre and the novel that bears her name has stood the test of time and become one of the great titles of Western literature. For all that, it’s still a rousing, dramatic soap opera of a story. Jane narrators in her own unmistakable and unforgettable intimate voice; she tells the reader about her neglected childhood, painful boarding school years, and finally, about accepting a governess position at magnificently gloomy Thornfield Hall. Her new charge is a sprightly little French ward; her new master is the enigmatic and charismatic Mr. Rochester. To everyone around them, Jane and Rochester are an unlikely—if not impossible—match. But the master of the house and demure plain Jane are kindred spirits with keen intellects and complex desires. Of course there is an obstacle greater than discrepancies in social standing, age, experience, and wealth standing in the way of Jane’s happiness—a terrible secret haunts Mr. Rochester’s past and may very well have infiltrated the halls of Thornfield. Author Charlotte Brontë’s masterpiece is an atmospheric Gothic romance that was considered far too passionate and scandalous when it was first published in 1847. That emotion still comes roaring across the page today—especially Jane’s determined longing for a free and equal life, something so regularly denied to a woman like herself in her day. A love story for the ages, Jane Eyre is the governess by which all other governesses are judged.
