Jane Eyre is a great work of fiction in it's own right but sometimes the pace and characterisation loses younger readers. The graphic novel is attractive. This one in particular has a double spread of all of the characters which can help, although as they are illustrated it is less of a problem than just reading the text. My 13 year old daughter has read the original novel and seen the TV adaptation and yet still found this graphic novel interesting for a quick read.
I'm a school librarian and I've bought a number of graphic novels. When students are studying Macbeth the characters portraits and graphics make it a lot easier to follow what is happening when some of the more lengthy speeches are being made. They also make a good introduction to more up to date books such as the Stormbreaker series to get secondary school students reading for fun. Point Blanc: The Graphic Novel (Alex Rider)Artemis Fowl: The Graphic NovelSilverFin: The Graphic Novel (Young Bond)Jane Eyre The Graphic Novel: Original Text (British English)Macbeth The Graphic Novel: Original Text (Unabridged, British English)I'm looking forward to many more of these.

Verified Purchase
I buy these for my nephews and nieces who are now 9 - 11 years old and they love them. Having read them they can recount characters, story and plot, even from the original text versions. The children love the graphics, which make complex English accessible and bring the stories to life. Where a Classical Comics title is not available disappointment is tangible. As new titles come into production I am buying them in advance for future birthdays and Christmas gifts. Truly superb. Thank you.

Really like this. It sums up the story of Jane Eyre very well, and the text is directly from the book. It is an easier and quicker way of reading the story, and it appeals to more age groups than the original book because this is a graphic novel. The pictures are done well, though I sometimes find them a bit lacking in detail and some of them also seem hurried. But this might as well just be the style of the illustrator, and I don't really mind it that much, the illustrations are otherwise very nice and expressive.

In the beginning there also is a character gallery, which helps a lot if one can't remember how a person is related to another person etc.

This is a great way of either rereading the original book, read a "comic" with a classic story you like, of introducing the story to younger people or introduce it to people do don't care much for reading books. This graphic novel has the main story/plot of the book, and still is more accessible than the original book by Brontë in many ways. Still, it isn't the original book, and therefore it will be lacking lots of description etc, but this is after all a graphic novel adaption, so that is something one has to take in consideration. This is a rather well done adaption nonetheless and a good purchase almost regardless of why you want to read the story :)
