Jane Eyre is a thick book, not just in number of pages, but also in writing style. My bachelor's degree is in English, so I was "required" to read Jane Eyre many times (at least 4 or 5). I just could never get through it; I always lost interest. So, when I decided to join the Eponymous challenge, I thought that this time I would read "Jane Eyre" in its entirety. And I did.

I enjoyed reading "Jane Eyre". I did know, of course, the entire storyline of the book (since I still participated in class discussions). But now I know what all the fuss is about. There's more to "Jane Eyre" that what meets the page.

I recommend that everyone read "Jane Eyre". It is truly a classic, and with good reason. I am also interested in having a small discussion about "Jane Eyre". So, if you're interested, go to www.carriesclassics.com and post a question or discussion point in the comments field, and we can start a book discussion.
