<i>"Jane Eyre"</i> is a story I've always had a passion for. I've watched several adaptations of the novel and had a long desire to read the book ever since. Now, I thought it was time to do so.
This is an in-temporal love story between a poor young woman and rich man. A sort of <i>"Beauty and the Beast"</i>, I guess, filled with love and drama, it represents society in Brontë's time perfectly.
Jane is no ordinary girl: she's strong, independent, determined and brave. She doesn't let anyone and anything tell her how to rule her heart and she, basically, defies all.
Mr. Rochester is, perhaps, the best male character I've ever got the opportunity to meet. Despite being considered as an ugly man, for me he has always been a beautiful man with a dark secret weighting on his shoulder. He sees in Jane a way to be free and start over despite all.
This book is a strong example of how love battles and wins all, defying the rules and society, demonstrating how two people so different can depend on each other to be free.
This is a pure masterpiece and one of the best books, if not the best book I've ever read. If I found the plot in the adaptations appealing, the original story on paper is way better and must stronger
A classic everyone should read.show more
