Teen Review: “Emma” by Jane Austen

Posted in book review, teen volunteer with tags , , on January 24, 2015 by centraltllc1

If you have seen the ‘90s movie “Clueless,” then you know the story of Emma. Yes, it is set in a different time period and some of the names are different, but the movie is a very good interpretation. Emma Woodhouse is living a nice life with her father on their large estate. When her governess and close friend is married off, Emma finds herself a new friend, the pretty, but somewhat unrefined, Harriet Smith. Miss Smith is to be Emma’s new project. Despite the warnings of her close family friend Mr. Knightley, Emma puts notions into Harriet’s mind of what a nice match she can make with a Mr. Elton. Though she has good intentions throughout this book, Emma begins to learn that her meddling can cause more harm than good.  This is a pleasant read that explores the intricate relationships of people in this time period, and it has more than a few plot twists.

Teen Review: “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Bronte

Posted in book review, teen volunteer with tags , , , on January 17, 2015 by centraltllc1

Jane Eyre is orphaned at a young age and taken in by her wealthy Aunt Reed. Jane has a miserable childhood with no love and a lot of torment from her spoiled cousins. When she is eight, Jane is sent to a boarding school after her aunt cannot stand another minute of her. After studying, and later teaching, at Lowood School, Jane finds herself in need of a change of scenery and applies for a governess position at Thornfield. The job requires Jane to teach Adele, a French girl, who has been taken in by the mysterious owner of Thornfield, Mr. Rochester. But Mr. Rochester is not the only mysterious thing. There is something very curious lurking in the mansion. This gothic novel is a tale of romance that follows the unfortunate life of Jane Eyre. Though the book had some sad parts, I was happy with the ending.
