it's definitely slow going. i reread it over the course of a couple months which was honestly pretty ideal


message 6: by W. (new)

W. It contains a lot of extense and incredibly well-depicted descriptions that, even to the most avid reader of the 21st century, it provokes a little shock due to the difference in today´s writing style.

pris I just bought this for $5 because it was it the clearance section as it is 'old'. Shame.

Really true. As years pass, I think back on this book more and more. It's eternal for sure, I may need to revisit it again.

i reread it very slowly in bits and pieces over a few months and it was really an excellent experience. 10/10 would recommend

Edith Jane eyre is and always will be phenomenal. The first time I read it, it actually only took me a couple days as I thought the plot and characters were so compelling and rich. The fabulous thing about Jane is that she is a modern woman! She is strong and intelligent and knows what she wants and I absolutely adore her for that. She is just so real and it’s easy to empathize with her. This will always be an all time favorite. Also I agree- how is it possible to not like the classics? They’re classics for a reason!!!!

Morgan What would you recommend for someone first venturing into nineteenth century fiction?

Pride & Prejudice can be a good place to start, but still rocky - i think nineteenth-century children's books, like Alice's Adventures in Wonderland or Little Women, can be a great stepping stone. and also they are soso fun so it's a win win

Asma Jane Eyre actually was the first full English book that I've rest at about the age 14 / 15 yo (obviously English is 2nd/3rd language) ... So ..

that's very cool for you


message 20: by sidsel89 (new)

sidsel89 Which 19th century literature would you recommend? (Read all Austen of course)


message 21: by Evie (new)

Evie Braithwaite This isn't only my favourite classic but it's one of my all time favourite books. It's so much more than a romance story. Jane is so intelligent & fights for her independence, honestly such an iconic character. I need to re-read this soon!

Dracula is great. Sherlock Holmes is great. Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman are wonderful poets if you're into that. lotta great fairytale-y stuff happening with Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm. and then obviously i lovelovelove alice's adventures in wonderland
