Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
is such en engaging book.
Victorian motifs mixed with romanticism and gothicism.
Madness, Gothic manor, secrets hidden behind splendid interiors.
Even thought sometimes I was not able to understand
the main character
I found this book really absorbing
and I read it so quickly
(even thought I am such a slow reader-
I can read one sentence a few times
if I like it).
Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain and little, I am soulless and heartless?
You think wrong! - I have as much soul as you, - and full as much heart!
And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth,
I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you!
I also watched this newest movie based on the book,
but I was disappointed.
All atmosphere disappears...
You do not feel any tension
If any of you knows
the older Jane Eyre's adaption
I am open to all your suggestions.
This is so many movies based on it
that I do not know which one to choose next.
