Read in February, 2011 — I own a copy

Classic story of orphaned, strong-willed imaginative Jane, reared by her unloving aunt, then sent to the privations of Lowood School. At eighteen she finds a job as a governess for little Adele, ward of the mysterious Mr Rochester.

Melodrama, caricatures, a rambling style in places, and a rather unlikely coincidence towards the end of the book do not - for some reason - detract from the readability and excitement of this book which I first read at fourteen, and was unable to put down.

I've read 'Jane Eyre' in book format several times since then, but decided to read it on the Kindle in its free version. I found it just as readable, and enjoyed it very much.
