Publisher's Summary

Earphones Award Winner (AudioFile Magazine)

"I think the reason we're so struck by [Jane Eyre] is how Charlotte Brontë manages to relate, expertly, what it means to be a human being...and that never changes." (Narrator Thandie Newton)

Following Jane from her childhood as an orphan in Northern England through her experience as a governess at Thornfield Hall, Charlotte Brontë's Gothic classic is an early exploration of women's independence in the mid-19th century and the pervasive societal challenges women had to endure. At Thornfield, Jane meets the complex and mysterious Mr. Rochester, with whom she shares a complicated relationship that ultimately forces her to reconcile the conflicting passions of romantic love and religious piety. Performing the early Victorian novel with great care and respect, actress Thandie Newton (Crash, The Pursuit of Happyness) draws out Jane Eyre's intimacy and depth while conveying how truly progressive Brontë was in an era of extreme restraint.

"Narrator Thandie Newton gives a delightful performance of this beloved classic. She delivers the voice of Jane from childhood to adulthood with elegant conviction, breezing through the dense sentences as if they were part of a contemporary novel." (AudioFile)

    Jane Eyre is my favorite book, and I have read it MANY times. I have never heard it read until now, and I'm so glad I chose this version! Thandie Newton brought this to life in the best way possible, and I fell in love with Jane Eyre all over again! Loved it!!

    "Thandie oh thandie"

    what a blissful narration. thandie Newton brought this book to life, with perfect character development, and feeling. Her interpretation of scenes was appropriate and thoughtful. I felt like she really understood how people acted in the period, and she was never wooden, never annoying. She gave just the right touch to Jane. Her voices for Yorkshire accents were epic. Her narration never distracted from. the story which was important to me, it just emerses you deeper into the plot.

    Jane Eyre is probably my favorite book of all-time, and I read it every so often. I decided to try listening to it and wow, am I ever glad I did. Thandie Newton did an amazing job narrating the story; she really brings both Jane and Mr Rochester to life. Highly recommended!

    "Great book, outstanding narration."

    The narration sold me on this, each character is unique in voice, and though each voiced by the same woman, men are clearly men and women clearly women. Fantastic work.

    "An incredible listen"

    I absolutely loved every aspect and facet of this Audible listen. I am in awe of Charlotte Bronte and what and how she conveyed and portrayed the story of Jane Eyre. Thandie Newton gives a SUPERB narration. Ms. Newton does not miss a beat in the nuances of the characters and their respective voices, and the mind of Jane Eyre. I was transported to 1847 for 19 glorious hours...and enjoyed every second of it. This book will be on my mind for a very long time.

    I defy anyone not to be completely swept up in Charlotte Bronte's magnificent story, made all the better by Thandie Newton's superb narration. Newton is an absolute wonder!! Her subtle vocal skills breathed fresh life into this classic story set in the Moors of Northern England. I was hooked from the first chapter. Very highly recommended.

    "An incredible narration for a true classic!"
    What did you like most about Jane Eyre?

    The narration was fantastic. Thandi really brought the book to life - I was completely immersed in the story from start to finish and was really sad when it was over.


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

    I always think Jane Eyre is very similar to Wuthering Heights. The Brontes have an exceptional capability of capturing the passion of forbidden love with the anti heroes and really drawing you into the complex characters in their tales. Nothing is black and white, which keeps you guessing until the end.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    When Rochester declares his love for Jane! My heart skipped a beat, such a beautiful scene.


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

    The ending is so beautiful and bitter sweet and Thandi's narration was incredibly moving. I couldn't stop crying!


    Any additional comments?

    This really is an amazing listen, I encourage anyone to download it, they won't be disappointed!
