Book Review - Jane Eyre
The impetus for picking up Jane Eyre again, nearly twenty three years after the first read, was to cleanse my Young Adult (YA) reading palette. Jane Eyre was YA, long before YA was even a genre. What I love about the way Charlotte Bronte writes is that every word is perfect. Her sentences are beautifully written, elegant, and spot-on perfect. Yes, there are societal differences between then and now, but the essence of the characters are timeless.
Loved the reread! Most definitely recommended for YA and Adult readers alike.
