Teen Review: “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Bronte
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.
