Chapter I The novel opens on a dreary November afternoon at Gateshead, the home of the wealthy Reed family. Reed, has forbidden her niece to play with her cousins Eliza, Georgiana, and the bullying John. John then hurls a book at the young girl, pushing her to the end of her patience.
I find that every time I read this book I learn something new or interpret a scene differently. I have read this book during all different phases of my life and I find that through every reading I am completely affected with the story even though I know exactly what is going to happen.
The premise of the book everyone knows, our story is about the life of Jane Eyre through her childhood living at the home of her aunt who doesn't love or want to keep her to her adult years as governesses for the ward of Mr.
Rochester of Thornfield Hall. Jane develops a relationship with her employer that soon blossoms into a fierce love but Mr.
Rochester has a secret that he is keeping from Jane that threatens to rip everything apart leaving Jane utterly homeless and alone. This book has been talked about time and time again and I think one of the main reasons it stands the testament of time is that Charlotte Bronte creates a heroine who is so easy to sympathize with and Jane's connections with her audience is felt throughout the entire book and begins on the first page.
This to me is the best thing about the book because we know exactly how Jane thinks, and feels and we come to love and adore her for her plainness, intelligence, and spirit.
Of course it also helps that our hero Mr. Rochester is so attractive with his brooding, temperamental personality but he is one of my favorite male characters in all of literature because he is so developed I can picture him perfectly in my mind.
Every young woman dreams of meeting their Mr. Rochester because he loves Jane with a passion that is hard to believe could exist.
So I highly recommend reading this novel because I think it deserves all of the attention it gets. Charlotte Bronte is a master storyteller and uses such elements of horror to create a timeless gothic romance novel.
