Jane Eyre's Husband - The Life of Edward Rochester
Jane Eyre's Husband - The Life of Edward Rochester
by Tara Bradley
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.09

3.0 out of 5 stars Alright -not brilliant though, 15 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Though it didn't meet my expectations, the story was interesting (though not my own personal head cannon).

I had expected something which was akin to Jane Eyre, though all from Mr Rochester's POV (though obviously starting before his return to Thornfield). Instead this came in 3 parts; the first dealing with Rochester's life and experiences up until he meets Jane, the second part being a smaller version of what I had anticipated, and third exploring life for the married couple.

Not the best book I've ever read, but certainly not the worst. The narrator is identifiable and the plot is intriguing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't even finish it, 15 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Catcher in the Rye (Paperback)
Found the language usage very difficult to engage with, as well as the narrator who I could not empathise with on almost any level (and that takes some doing). I understand from others who have finished the book that it supposedly gets "better" but I found little redeemable before giving up entirely.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for short hair, 15 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Turbie Towel White
I have long hair, and so it wouldn't fit, but for people with shoulder-length and shorter hair styles, this is really useful.

Tied using a piece of elastic at the bottom of the turban, affixed to a button located at the top- took some getting use to though.

Absolutely brilliant. By far the cheapest available on amazon, and yet I've found no fault with it- a must buy for anyone seeking more storage space for their camera

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful little case, 15 Sept. 2013

Though smaller than expected, and therefore not fitting my needs, this case would certainly be of use to others who have fewer SDs card but wish to product them and keep them safe

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 15 Sept. 2013

Whilst not being exactly like the movie, I did enjoy the simplicity of the story- and it's an excellent picture book too!
