Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is an English novel about a young orphan named, Jane. Jane lives with her horrible mean aunt and her annoying cousins. Her aunt treats her unfairly until she finally sends her to a boarding school that is highly religious and miserable to live at. Conditions eventually get better at the school, and Jane becomes a teacher there. One day, she decides to leave the school and become a governess in order to see more of the world. She becomes the employee of the mysterious Mr. Rochester and begins to think she might have feelings for him. However, there is something strange about the house, and Jane is not sure who or what exactly is living in the attic. Read this book if you like romance, if you enjoy mysteries, or if you like thick books with lots of symbolism. I give this book a 10 out of 10.
