The reason I picked Jane Eyre for May reading challenge was that it is my mother’s favourite book. Of. All. Time. I simply wanted to know why she loves it so much.
Surprisingly I found the language very strange. Although I absolutely love period dramas and the old-school feel, but reading it is really quite different. Once I got over the first “shock” I enjoyed the book overall.
It’s difficult not to like Jane; she’s smart, kind, strong-willed and loud to voice her opinions where appropriate. For me Jane Eyre is a coming-of-age story about a young girl trying to find her place in the world; a story about love, and hope and everything in between. One I’d want to read again, and that is sure to have an impact every time.
Is it my favorite book? No. (sorry, mum!)
Do I like classics? Guess so. I’d definitely try to read another one.
