Oh classic literature….
Jane Eyre is an orphan who lives with her widowed aunt and cousins who dislike her (this part kind of reminds me of Harry Potter). She is eventually sent to a charity boarding school and later becomes a governess. The novel takes place in the 1800s, and it explores Jane Eyre’s values and decisions during her life.
I guess that’s a semi-decent synopsis? I wasn’t sure how to sum it up.
I will tell you right now that I am not a fan of classic literature. Yeah, I guess I see the value in reading it, but I don’t find any enjoyment in it.
To this novel’s credit, I will say that it isn’t difficult to understand (like Shakespeare), it’s just a bit dull. I think part of that is because the main character, Jane Eyre, is just so dull. She’s constantly keeping her emotions reserved, and she’s just not very interesting.
I guess the last part of the book was kind of interesting, but the whole book is 600-something pages.
Not a fan.
