Publisher's Summary

Everyone is familiar with Charlotte Brontë's passionate, but restrained novel in which the plain, yet spirited governess Jane Eyre falls for the arrogant Mr. Rochester. It’s a novel that simmers with sexual tension but never quite reaches the boiling point. Which is to be expected. After all, the original was written in 1847. That was then. This is now. And in JANE EYRE LAID BARE, author Eve Sinclair writes between the lines to chart the smoldering sexual chemistry between the long-suffering governess and her brooding employer. When an eager and curious Jane Eyre arrives at Thornfield Hall her sexual desires are awakened. Who is the enigmatic Rochester and why is she attracted to him? What are the strange, yet captivating noises coming from the attic, and why does the very air she breathes feel heavy with passion? Only one thing is certain. Jane Eyre may have arrived at Thornfield an unfulfilled and tentative woman, but she will leave a very different person…

Shallow Characters and Plot

I'm not familiar with the original Jane Eyre so I am basing this on the book's own merits. Jane's character is completely unbelievable - her obsession with Mr. Rochester - her overactive sexuality that comes from nowhere. Mr. Rochester is laughably one-dimensional. The ending is not credible. The book was saved by Penelope Rawlins' wonderful performance.

Not so much

Didn't like it that Mr. Rochester turned out to be whipped by his crazy wife. Didn't like the last few chapters.
