What can I say? To me this is probably the greatest book ever written. Whenever I write a book, I have this in the back of my mind. I even wanted to emulate the bleakness of the setting when writing my book Summerset. This is a truly remarkable novel in the way the passion between Jane and Rochester is portrayed without the use of explicit sex scenes. I love this book so much that if I ever have a daughter I will make sure she reads it.
