    “Do you think I am an automaton? — a machine without feelings? and can bear to have my morsel of bread snatched from my lips, and my drop of living water dashed from my cup? 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 am not talking to you now through the medium of custom, conventionalities, nor even of mortal flesh: it is my spirit that addresses your spirit; just as if both had passed through the grave, and we stood at God's feet, equal — as we are!”

  • Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre is deservedly a classic. If you want to see the new movie, I really hope you read the book first. You won't be disappointed.

  • It’s a classic, but there are so many flaws that it’s hard to understand why everyone clings to it so ferociously.

  • ...I found the story completely gripping, and I read this book much faster than I had imagined I would.

  • Trust me on this one, once you get past the boredom induced by the actual words on the page (sorry Charlotte, but you were just not that captivating) and start paying attention to the bigger picture, you will find yourself engrossed in a deliciously dark gothic novel and an epic love story.

  • I fell in love with the novel when I read it in high school and it remains one of my favorite books. There are few novels that have hit me with such force as this one, and few that I love to re-read as much.
