    Jane Eyre follows the emotions and experiences of eponymous Jane Eyre, her growth to adulthood, and her love for Mr. Rochester, the byronic master of Thornfield Hall. The novel contains elements of social criticism, with a strong sense of morality at its core, but is nonetheless a novel many consider ahead of its time given the individualistic character of Jane and the novel's exploration of sexuality, religion, and proto-feminism.

    What did you love best about Jane Eyre?

    I actually had to stop listening to this audio book. When the narrator was reading the story the recording volume was very low and so I'd turn my volume up but then when narrator got to a speaking/dialogue part of the story the volume went way up it sound like the characters were constantly shouting at me. I found this very disruptive to the story line not to mention startling me with the volume changes. I've listened to several other audio books and had no problem with the volume setting on my mp3 player or radio.

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Stephenie says: "Great series. Worth every credit."
    "Excellent Story, Terrible British Accent"

    What aspect of Tavia Gilbert’s performance would you have changed?

    I really liked the storyline and the portrayal of all the characters except the male lead Bones. I was expecting something along the lines of Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and what I got was Eliza Doolittle from My Fair Lady. Fake sounding and not very masculine. Hopefully Bones' accent is more subdued in future audiobooks.
