Got this book yesterday on our library field trip, and had it finished before bedtime. The plotline is perfect for me--Emma is transported into Jane Eyre's life and world, and the events of Emma's past soon begin to strangely mirror Jane's. Not having read Jane Eyre, I was a little concerned that this book might ruin it for me, but the events were satisfactorily vague and I was okay with the details that were revealed. There were tons of little allusions to literature, which I enjoyed, and the constant shifting between Jane's time and Emma's was interesting as well. I give it 4 stars because some of the characters were a little trite and the ending was a little predictable, but the writing was top-notch and I will definitely read the sequel, based on The Scarlet Letter (soon to be followed by a third based on Phantom of the Opera!).
