In my opinion this book is far much better than those Jane Austen’s novel. Jane Eyre novel was much ahead of its time. It is not a love story but journey of a girl.
I like the character of Jane, her boldness is really admirable. You feel connected to this character which is very rare in case of classics. She is plain (as writer describe her in book) not heavenly beautiful just like any ordinary girl. She is strong woman and fight for her rights, unlike ordinary women of that time (in old days it was considered as bad manners when a girl take a stand for herself). Mr. Rochester’s character portrayed differently. As described in wiki he is a Byronic hero, a bit self centred.
I feel some part of the book is hard to understand and few paragraphs are bit descriptive apart from this everything in this book is exceptional.
