Book Finished: May 10th, 2015
It feels extremely weird to me to try to review a literary classic.
Despite being an avid reader, I have a pretty long list of classic books I haven’t gotten to yet. This past month, I was able to cross another one off the list – Jane Eyre.
I’ve previously read Wuthering Heights and Pride and Prejudice, both set in the same era. While I did enjoy those reads, I thought both Heathcliff and Mr. Darcy were unbearable. With Jane Eyre’s Mr. Rochester, I finally found a Victorian gentleman I approved of. Jane is much more interesting than the women featured in the other novels, and was rooting for her throughout.
