I loved this book! It took me a while to read but when I finished I was so glad she got with Mr Darcy!


Andrez (andrez-ssi) Darcy?

Anyway, this was so much better than what i thought, I couldn't stop reading it, and I also love it that she is not a huge beauty but still had love

The beginning is so sad...I cried through the whole thing...I am on Chapter 10, and it is the second part of her life....I am glad that it isn't as sad as the first part!!!

She is now at Thornfield and we have met Mr. Rochester....


Kathy (bookgoddess1969) I love this book! I read it for the first time when I was in high school. I think it was for 11th grade English. And then I read it again a few years ago! Great book! :)

lol...I am kind of warming up to him...I could relate with the fact that he was hurt by Celine, and then he finds out that Adele could be his....

mmmhhhmmmm....after you read that you should read Wide Sargasso Sea as it totally changes your perception of Rochester and another character you won't have met yet...

SOOOO Jealous...Must go to the book store and see if I Can order it....


Nicolle | 343 comments Mod
Got mine through college but think they bought from amazon. If you can't find I will give you my copy after Jan (when my exam is) though it is full of annotations....though when I think about it they are in pencil I think so I could erase them....

Annotations are great..they might help me...Dad is taking me book shopping tomorrow...he buys me one for my Birthday and then him and I have a reading competition every year and I read more books last year so maybe I will be able to find it at Chapters!!!

YES ... I hated this in high school. A few years ago my F2F book club was looking for a classic and I suggested Jane Eyre - I thought my adult-self might have a better appreciation for it. Well, I did appreciate it more, but I still hated the book. I thought Rochester was an insufferable jerk!

Nooooo! :( wish you had enjoyed it as much as I did.


Vicky | 19 comments I have read this book three times now. It is one of my favorites.
