Jane Eyre

by Charlotte Brontė

Just beautiful. I began reading this book with a few preconceived notions--I had previously seen a rather dismal movie adaptation of the story and found the heroine to be dull and overly solemn.

Imagine my delight when I found that Jane is really a full-blooded, passionate woman with a deep longing for excitement and challenge. Who hasn't been in her shoes? Most of us haven't been a governess, but we've all looked into the distance and wondered, "What else is there?"

Harold Bloom once said that we should read for ourselves--that is, to find a part of ourselves written down on a page which resonates in our souls. At least for me, this was one of those books.

Author of the Day

Elin Barnes
Elin Barnes has done many different things in her life, like being a flight instructor, working for a criminal appeals lawyer and working for many big name technology companies in Silicon Valley (Microsoft, Google etc.). But the one thing that she never thought would actually happen is to write (and finish) a book. Her debut novel, Justification for Murder, has, in the meantime, earned rave reviews and grown into a series. As our author of the day, Barnes reveals why she picked Silicon Valley as the backdrop, her inspiration behind writing a biomedical thriller and how she went for ride-alongs with the San Jose Police Department.
