4.0 out of 5 stars It's a classic for a reason..., 22 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jane Eyre (Wordsworth Classics) (Paperback)
I'm often quite reluctant to read books that are deemed by many to be a 'classic' within literature. Mainly because, although i can certainly appreciate the classics and all they have done to shape the modern world in which we live, I often find them to be significantly over-hyped and therefore disappointing to my many preconceived notions. However Jane Eyre does not fall into this category, not by any means.

Told from the perspective of the title character (obviously), the reader follows the life of Jane and her many ups and downs: from her childhood up until her 'happy ending' as an adult.

Obviously I knew the end of this novel before I started reading it, almost anyone who has even the most vague of interests in literature knows that this book has served as a premise to most love-stories since it's rise to 'classic' status. Yet the fact that I knew the ending didn't stop either my enjoyment or my shock at the many pitfalls and tribulations faced by Jane.

All in all a novel completely deserving of the 'over-hype'. If you haven't read this novel yet, as I hadn't up until two years ago, then do. I can promise you will not be disappointed as you well have been in the past.
