Following Jane from her childhood as an orphan in Northern England through her experience as a governess at Thornfield Hall, Charlotte Brontë's Gothic classic is an early exploration of women's independence in the mid-19th century and the pervasive societal challenges women had to endure. At Thornfield, Jane meets the complex and mysterious Mr. Rochester, with whom she shares a complicated relationship that ultimately forces her to reconcile the conflicting passions of romantic love and religious piety.
Such a lovely old love story

A LADY'S TALE
What made the experience of listening to Jane Eyre the most enjoyable?
Listening to the master or should I say, mistress story teller, brilliant, of its time, told in ageless language, easily understood in this time and age. Perhaps a little too critical of the French but understandable.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Jane Eyre?
The moment at the altar when Rochester nearly allowed his passion for JANE TO CUASE HIM TO BE A BIGAMIST!
What does Thandie Newton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
She lives the part admirably, using the language and accent of the time.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
as nearly as possible!!
Any additional comments?
I would be in a very long queue as a critic and a very humble one at that ,I leave a thorough critique to my betters!
