Jane Eyre (Harper Teen)

What can one say about a classic without saying what's already been said a hundred times? Not much. Jane Eyre is as lovely as always. It's one of those wonderful, interesting and quirky books that will live on. This time around Harper Teen has given it a new cover that seems to draw upon the Twilight phenomenon. It's a very dark cover with a flower. Over the last 150 years there have been thousands of critiques of this book. Overall you just have to read the book yourself to understand why this is a treasure. I guess the final comment is the same as it always has been. Go read the book. It's worth it.

Book Blurb for Jane Eyre (Harper Teen)

"Come to me–come to me entirely now," said he. "Make my happiness–I will make yours."

Born into a poor family and raised by an oppressive aunt, young Jane Eyre becomes the governess at Thornfield Manor to escape the confines of her life. There her fiery independence clashes with the brooding and mysterious nature of her employer, Mr. Rochester. But what begins as outright loathing slowly evolves into a passionate romance. When a terrible secret from Rochester's past threatens to tear the two apart, Jane must make an impossible choice: Should she follow her heart or walk away and lose her love forever?

Unabashedly romantic and utterly enthralling, Jane Eyre endures as one of the greatest love stories of all time. This must-have edition of a timeless classic is beautifully presented for a modern teen audience.
