My Review of Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre is a wonderfully spirited and principled girl and woman. She never takes the easy or tempting path while disregarding the context of a situation. And when she’s offered a choice, at the end of the book, between her personal happiness and devoting herself to God, she chooses a way consistent with her character, leading to a satisfactory ending.

On the down side, this choice between happiness and God wasn’t present throughout the whole book, and I was surprised when it surfaced in the third part. Also, Bronte should have edited more ruthlessly. I find her extremely verbose, and I usually enjoy detailed descriptions.

If love this book and I highly recommend it, especially to adolescents.
