Jane Eyre... Do you know where the wicked go?

Monday, March 7, 2011

Jane Eyre has to be without a doubt one of my most favorite novels ever... So what do I do with my favorite novels? I re-read them.

Honestly, it's been years since I've read the original Jane Eyre. So when I saw a reading challenge posted on goodreads, naturally, I hopped right on board that bandwagon.

Charlotte Brontë’s most beloved novel describes the passionate love between the courageous orphan Jane Eyre and the brilliant, brooding, and domineering Rochester.

The loneliness and cruelty of Jane’s childhood strengthens her natural independence and spirit, which prove invaluable when she takes a position as a governess at Thornfield Hall. But after she falls in love with her sardonic employer, her discovery of his terrible secret forces her to make a heart-wrenching choice. Ever since its publication in 1847, Jane Eyre has enthralled every kind of reader, from the most critical and cultivated to the youngest and most unabashedly romantic. It lives as one of the great triumphs of storytelling and as a moving and unforgettable portrayal of a woman's quest for self-respect.(summary from goodreads)

If you love Jane Eyre the way I do, this reading challenge would be an excellent way to fall in love with a classic all over again.

And the movie comes out this week! I can't wait to see it.

And some more fantastic news! The author of Jane (the modern re-telling of Jane Eyre.) Has a new modern adaption coming out... Of Wuthering Heights!!! And it's called Catherine. Look out for that. You know I will be.

    One of my favorite books as well. Jane is such a well-written character and one of the ones I identify with the most. Looking forward to the film!
