Hmmm ... what can I say? I enjoyed the novel's unconventional love story, and I thought the book was ahead of its time in its portrayal of a strong woman who knows her own mind. But I'm not sure I'll ever read it again. The "good parts" were surrounded by pages and pages of descriptions -- both of the environment and of Jane's inner thoughts -- that I found tedious to read. Anything that could be said in a sentence, Bronte took at least a page or two to describe. And I've never seen an author use so many semicolons in my life!
