2.5 stars. I was very disappointed to realize early on that I wasn't enjoying this book as much as I thought I would. But I wanted to finish it and see if I'd like it better by the end. Turns out.. no, not really.

Mainly I think I just didn't care for the style of the book. I can appreciate it objectively, from an academic perspective, and I understand why it's written the way it is, but... I just didn't like it. I felt annoyed by the characters instead of feeling the sense of knowing them - especially Antoinette - better.

I think it's still worth reading for Jane Eyre fans, though. It's not a bad book - just one that didn't click with me.
