    After a sad and neglected childhood as an orphan, Jane Eyre was hired by Edward Rochester as governess for his ward. Jane was pleased with the quiet country life at Thornfield, with the beautiful old manor house and gardens, with the book-filled library, and with her own comfortable room. But there were stories of a strange tenant, a woman who laughed like a maniac, and who stayed in rooms on the third floor.

    Story

    One of the best books ever written - everyone should read it. I read the book when I was in my early teens. It was compelling then and I have read it six or seven times since. It continues to be compelling and timeless. I am now in my early 60s and a couple of months ago purchased the audible verion with one of my credits. It is one of the best purchases I ever made. The story is great and the reader is superb. I have listened to it twice since my pruchase. Jane Eyre is one of the best romances ever written - and the author creates one of the most amazing mysteries even included in a book. The author takes the time to create an unforgettable atmosphere and extraordinary characters. Jane, I am so proud of how you turned out as a young lady! Mr. Rochester, where can we find someone like you? It is not a story that could have been quickly told - it is an experience that has to unfold and soak into your senses. This is the type of book I like best because it has exquisite writing, well defined characters, a compelling story and soul wrenching romance/passion without desciptions of gratutious and graphic sex. The passion in this book is too great to trivialize with vulgarity. If you haven't read or listened to Jane Eyre, I envy you because you have something remarkable to look forward to. If you have read it, you really need to hear it - again and again.
