I cannot stress this enough. This is perhaps the BEST narration I've ever heard, and I listen to a vast number of audiobooks. Thandie Newton is a genius with all of the different voices she uses. You really have to listen for yourself to really understand what I'm trying to stress here.

Believe it or not, this is the very first time I've read (well, listened) to this book. I totally loved it. I'm glad I purchased this as I will listen to this again in the future. Thank you LJ, for sharing this audiobook with me. It was "over the top" good.

I highly recommend listening to this version. Even if you've read this book 100 or more times, you have GOT to listen to this version of the audiobook. You won't be sorry.

Very well done, Ms. Newton.

"Jane Eyre" follows the life of the titular character, an orphaned and mistreated young woman, as she grows into adulthood. Raised by her cruel aunt and later attending Lowood School, Jane eventually becomes a governess at Thornfield Hall. There, she encounters the enigmatic Mr. Rochester and develops a complex relationship with him. As secrets from Rochester's past come to light, Jane faces moral dilemmas and personal challenges. The novel explores themes of social class, morality, and the pursuit of independence, ultimately culminating in a tale of love, self-discovery, and resilience.

Whether you are reading critically or just letting it flow for enjoyment, the life of Jane Eyre is fascinating. If you know that it started as what we would contemporarily call a character study fanfiction of Jane Fairfax from Jane Austen's Emma you can see all the little references and curiousities. If not, you get to see what brought the English gentry to almost ban the book for its morality. I love and hate alongside Jane in the best ways!

I can see why it’s a classic, the but dragged for so long, and was too wordy.
