Very skillfully written, Jane Eyre plows the path for independent and smart women who want to stand toe to toe with men. I understand the significance of this book in its setting and time. Gasp, unheard of ye little woman contesteth man? However, at this moment in history the power of its role challenging story line doesn't seem like a big deal anymore. I guess the story was actually successful in pushing forward equality between men and women. There are some fun mystery elements and also very sad, rip your heart out and squash it with a hammer moments, that make it a little different than your average love story. I tip my cap, but refuse to bow down to this classic.
