Raised by vampyre relatives, Jane grows to resent the lifestyle's effect on her upbringing. No sunlight, nighttime hours, and a diet of bloody red meat is no way for a mortal girl to live. Things change for Jane when the ghost of her uncle visits her, imparts her parents' slayer history, and charges her with the responsibility of striking out to find others of her kind and learn the slayer ways.
After trying her luck at a school full of zombies, Jane finds a position as a governess, where she meets and falls in love with Mr. Rochester. But evil strikes in the form of Mr. Rochester's first wife, a violent werewolf he keeps locked in the attic. Jane departs to study the slayer tradition with her cousins, but finds herself yearning to reunite with Mr. Rochester. She returns to find that Mr. Rochester has been bitten by the werewolf, and only she can release him from his curse.
I love Jane! The book flowed easily like the author was channeling Charlotte Bronte when she wrote it. Although I know the original Jane well and have loved to read the it over and over again. I truely loved this adaption! The reader did and awesome job! Enjoy

When Pride and Prejudice and Zombies came out, I was excited. I was giddy with the thought that two of my beloved favorites would mesh, much like the pairing of peanut butter and chocolate, into a wonderful new creation. Insert face palm. Sherri Browning Erwin manages the feat: she seamlessly blends the paranormal into Bronte's classic tale in such a way that, if I didn't know better, I'd imagine that it had always been this way.

i realized that I had never read Jane Eyre, the whole story that is. But I had seen movies so I just thought I had. This version is very enjoyable, the narrator is superb and for all who enjoy these old english stories, I can recommend this one, although a little bit bloody.

It had potential -- except it stole from too many other vampire, zombie, werewolf stories.

I couldn't stop listening. it was well written and the narriator did a wonderful job. will listen to again.
I love the story of Jane Eyre it is one of my favorite classics. The fact that they were able to add all these extra elements to alter the story but at the same time stayed true to the story won me over. I wish they had made this into a movie verison rather than Pride, Prejudice and zombies.
Would you listen to Jane Slayre again? Why?
I really enjoyed the actual story in this book.. however. The narration puts me out like a light. Which is odd because other narration by Rosalyn Landor I have loved. Perhaps it is just the combination of the two. I will have to download the digital book to finish the story.

Would you try another book from Charlotte Brontë and Sherri Browning Erwin and/or Rosalyn Landor?
I can believe they are aloud to use Charlotte Bronte's name for this cheep parody.
