I completed my reading of Jane Eyre. I am not sure where to start to explain my thoughts on it. I loved it. That is for sure. I am head over heels in love with Mr. Rochester. Jane made me laugh and yell. I wanted to hug her and hit her, simultaneously. I chose this off of Kathrin's list. Makes me think I might just like Kathrin. *grins*
A big plus to reading this is that I have been spending more time with a girl I met three years ago. She was away at college until recently. Now, we work together, and I love the chance to get to know her better. Jane Eyre is one of her favorite books. She has written college papers on the book. When she found out I was reading (and liking) it, she suggested Wide Sargasso Sea. I MUST read that book. Why? Because my only real complaint about Jane Eyre is that it does not truly explain Bertha. We hear Rochester's explanation, and it isn't a bad one, but I am left feeling like there could be so much more. Granted, Jane Eyre isn't a thin book, as it is, but still... I will definitely be searching out a copy of Wide Sargasso Sea and sharing my thoughts on it.
I am so glad I took this challenge and read this book.
