Jane Eyre: Reviewed

Author:Charlotte Bronte
Reading Level (Conceptual):Sophisticated readers
Reading Level (Vocabulary):Sophisticated readers
Genre:fiction, historical
Year of publication:1847

A difficult book; much, much sadder than I had remembered from when I'd read it to myself a very long time ago. It's about temptation and the definition of bigamy.

My daughter was really shocked by the way children (Jane Eyre and her classmates) were treated in the beginning of the book. She was horrified by the sacrifices that Jane felt required to make in order to resist temptation and preserve her good name.
I'm pretty sure that, although the book is fiction, the conditions it describes are ones that affected many women at the time depicted in the novel.
