Publisher's Summary

The work tells the story of Jane's early life, her experience at Lowood School and as a governess. Her refusal to accept Rochester's love on any but her own strictly moral terms is a passionate cry for independence.

    Story
    "Captivating!"
    If you could sum up Jane Eyre in three words, what would they be?

    Transportive. Romantic. Heartwrenching.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Juliette Stevenson was perfect. This was such an enjoyable, immersive experience. I don't normally rave over a book reading, but I shall never forget how deeply I got into this. Of course, the saga story is superb, but Juliet made it so realistic that I felt I was there with Jane.


    Which character – as performed by Juliet Stevenson – was your favorite?

    Of course, Jane.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I think when she ran away and her difficult journey on the road.


    Any additional comments?

    Give that woman a Grammy!

    "What can make a classic better....?"

    narration by Juliet Stevenson!
    I am revisiting 12th grade English as an adult, didn't anticipate the richness added by the enfleshment of characters provided by Ms. Stevenson's presentation.

    "10 Star"

    Jane Eyre captured my attention from page 1, truly a classic. With every chapter i couldn't wait to read the next. I am so glad I chose the Juliet Stevenson version, she played the characters with such passion, creatively, she brought the book alive. 10 Star

    "Excellent performance of a beloved classic"

    I must've read Jane Eyre at least 15 times between the ages of 7 and 67, but never heard it as an audiobook -- never dared. Never having been satisfied with any dramatisation, I always thought that I would do best to keep the voices to myself as well. But Juliet Stevenson does such a good job as reader that for the very first time I actually cried at a point or two, though I could never understand why on earth some of the book's first readers (e.g. Thackeray) said they had. So I'm grateful to have experienced this much loved book freshly, as it were -- not portrayed by actors who don't fit the part, and pruned and altered for the screen, but read in full by one of my favourite Audible narrators, Ms. Stevenson. Brava!

    "Loved it! Only one caveat..."

    This whole book was brilliantly read and of course, the literature itself is brilliant: warm and illustrative and beautifully written.
    My ONLY issue with this audible book is that the reader has a very sibilant S sound which is somewhat distracting. This is more noticeable in the beginning, for whatever reason. Regardless, I heartily recommend Jane Eyre and this reading of it!

    Juliet Stevenson brought this book to life for me. I'd read it was before, but it was new again, thanks to her narration, and Charlotte Bronte's prose.

    "A Timeless Classic Narrated by An Excellent Reader"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it has an excellent plot told in the first person.


    What other book might you compare Jane Eyre to, and why?

    There is no other book which compares to it.


    What about Juliet Stevenson’s performance did you like?

    She was so natural and every character was excellently portrayed.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There is sadness and humour in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    This has to be the best romance I've ever read. I particularly like the wedding ceremony and I'll never forget the first time I heard a dramatised production of it on the radio. I was looking forward to two people being joined in matrimony and - well, you'll find out when you listen to the book.
    Besides romance, however, there's mystery when Jane's at Thornfield Hall and I like the part when Jane's at Moor House and the struggle she eventually has whilst she's there.

    I found the audio copy better than reading it, particularly as the girl Jane is teaching at Thornfield Hall is a French girl and if you're not a French speaking Person, as I'm not, reading the book can slow you down a bit.

    "Virtually Flawless"

    Juliet Stevenson's performance cannot be praised highly enough. She brings the genius of this first-person narrative to life, and does full justice to the beautifully-drawn characters who propel and adorn this witty, observant, rationally romantic Bildungsroman. Sheer brilliance.

    "A privilege to listen to."

    I always read the actual book as I listen to the audiobook. Juliet Stevenson's reading has enriched and brought a new dimension to a novel I have read many times. Now I have reached the end I feel an emptiness that is aching to be filled and thanks to Audible I will rejoin Juliet this evening as we embark on Dombey and Son together. I cannot recommend Jane Eyre highly enough. The combined joy of Charlotte Bronte's script and Juliet Stevenson's performance is truly sublime.

    this was my first audio book and I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to it - the speaker has much variety in her voice, which also aids the listener in understanding the story . Her different tones for the characters are lovely and make it even more recommendable.

    "Perfection. A sublime reading."

    Perfect. My favourite book brought vividly to life by a wonderful reading from Juliet Stevenson. Expressive, sympathetic, wonderful variation in mood and characterisation, especially the accents of some of the minor characters.
    I immersed myself in this during three long car journeys, and was unconscious of the miles slipping by. An absolute triumph.

    "Brilliant story, brilliantly narrated"

    I had to read this for college and expected it to be a boring Victorian story but it was actually very entertaining and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    The narration was excellent as well, it sounded like Jane Eyre herself was narrating the story.
