    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.

    What did you like best about Jane Eyre [Brilliance Edition]? What did you like least?

    I've read this book many times. It was nice to listen to it for a change.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I was very surprised to hear quite a few stumbles and slip ups by the narrator. They were very obvious, not subtle. I'm sure this is very common (it's a long book written in an old style) but it was VERY disappointing to me that time wasn't taken to edit them out. Surely this is what usually happens, right?

    History has all but forgotten.... In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next best-selling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write. But then she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction....

    What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

    I really enjoyed that Landor could switch accents. Her American accent was very good. It really helped with the believability of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed listening to this, it seemed to go so fast. I did figure out the ending before it got there, though.
