But there were stories of a strange tenant, a woman who laughed like a maniac, and who stayed in rooms on the third floor. The moody Rochester, however, rebuffed her attempts to find out about the woman, and ordered her to keep quiet about strange noises she heard at night.
One night in the garden, Edward Rochester embraced Jane and proposed marriage. But the quiet ceremony in the village church was shockingly halted by a stranger who claimed that Rochester was already married - to the raving maniac Jane had heard crying in the house.
Grief-stricken, Jane left Thornfield, feeling that her life was over before it had really begun. But life had many surprises in store for our heroine, and among them there just might be a happily-ever-after.

This was a terrific book. The writing was amazing. I don't know how authors can write such dialog. The intellectually stimulating conversations between Jane and Mr. Rochester was outstanding. I listened to the audio book and was thrilled with the narrator who made the characters come to life with her realistic portrayal of them. I was able to understand the motives of Jane, her convictions, and her appeal. I understand why Mr. Rochester was attracted to her.
I also watched the 2011 movie after I listened to the book and was thoroughly disappointed. I would highly recommend the book and in particular the Brilliance Audio edition.
I cant get enough of Jane Eyre! I have read this in print, watched every movie and t.v. version, and I have to say this audiobook didn't fail to satisfy. The narrator did a superb job of bringing to life a story that could easily be destroyed by the wrong voice or performance. The youthfulness of the woman's voice and her gullibility made the story more believable and mysterious. All I can say is that Jane Eyre has to be the template from which all gothic romances are born, but fail to transcend. Very modern idea of a woman willing to sacrifice her virtue for a tragic, flawed man that she knows she loves.
I read this book when I was young, and enjoyed it just as much -- if not more -- this time. The narrator was fantastic. Didn't want it to end.
No, storyline not engaging.
Use more layman language.
When Jane visits her dying friend during the night and is found the next morning sleeping beside her.
My review is negative because of the audible section of the book. I tried the audible session and truly enjoyed what I heard of it. It reached a certain part of the book and said that was the end of the audio. It is ridiculous to introduce a product without giving the full preview of it's feature. I will not get an audible book based on my preview of this book. I do not know if the book was good or not because I did not finish hearing it and since it was suppose to be audible I stopped when the audio ceased. what I heard of it was excellent but since it was a short section I rated the book 3 stars since I never got to hear the middle or the end. Come on amazon your marketing was lacking on this one.
I never got that far. No audio
again I didn't hear enough
What listening time. It would have been nice to have the audio to listen to.
