I wasn't crazy about this simplified version of Jane Eyre. I know it's for young readers but I missed the depth of the original. I also found the illustration melodramatic.

I once attempted reading this novel - the original classic. I couldn't finish it as I had no patient with its slow-moving plot. Yet I found that it is so loved by many and that got me into thinking that I might have missed something. So, I give it a go one more time but got an adapted version instead.

Verdict: Yes, finish reading it last night. It is indeed a lovely story, intended for romanticist at heart. However, remembering its original version is so boring, I'm still considering whether or n

I thought this was an excellent narrative! The way everything connects, telling Jane's life story while keeping it just that - a story - is wonderfully done. The characters and their developments were full of surprises and secrets, but they made sense when looking at events in retrospect; the foreshadowing is just right, done in a way that seems realistic and lifelike. It's a comforting read, but also keeps you on your toes, trying to guess what is happening or what will happen next.

Recommends it for: anyone
I picked up this book in a used book store...lovely 1943, classic illustrated, published by Dodd, Mead and Company and inscribed by Helen Smith from Mother, February 1944. Charlotte Bronte (and her sisters) have such a way with language, and insight into love, that I always feel "taken away" when I read her books.

I had already read a diferent version of Jane Eyre.
But it left out parts of the story. This book opened parts of the story to me, parts that I never new existed.
