Jane Eyre…

Jane Eyre…

Recently I have enrolled in a “Victorian Fiction and its Reading Audience” course.

The first reading is Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre.

At first I thought this might have been the worst book I have ever read in my life….after thinking about I have to say….it IS the worst book I have read in my life!

I heard that this book is often described as “Chick Lit”, which I have to say explains a lot.  The book is an autobiographical novel about an orphan (Jane Eyre) and her life journey as a governess (nanny) in England.

I think there are a couple movies made, but I will never be watching any of them….EVER!

If your a girl as sexist as it sounds you may enjoy this book…if you’ve every played Skyrim in you underwear I suggest you stay far away.
