Book Excerpt

m grasp my hair and my shoulder: he had closed with a desperate thing. I really saw in him a tyrant, a murderer. I felt a drop or two of blood from my head trickle down my neck, and was sensible of somewhat pungent suffering: these sensations for the time predominated over fear, and I received him in frantic sort. I don't very well know what I did with my hands, but he called me "Rat! Rat!" and bellowed out aloud. Aid was near him: Eliza and Georgiana had run for Mrs. Reed, who was gone upstairs: she now came upon the scene, followed by Bessie and her maid Abbot. We were parted: I heard the words -

"Dear! dear! What a fury to fly at Master John!"

"Did ever anybody see such a picture of passion!"

Then Mrs. Reed subjoined -

"Take her away to the red-room, and lock her in there." Four hands were immediately laid upon me, and I was borne upstairs.

One of my favorite books! Great writing, amazing clarity, and intriguing storyline :) However, I wouldn't say this was a romance novel. It has romance, but this book has more to offer than the love story of Jane and Rochester.

i love the pair of JANE and EDWARD ROCHESTER.....but i hate ST. JOHN...he is so mean!!!!love the book though...
Ok, it is now my favourite book. Much superior to the Brontë Sisters' other works.. Jane is such a lovely character you long to see her happy!
This book is a classic. No movie I ever seen has done this justice. Heavy with true christian morality. jane keeps her morals and gets the guy too.
Jane Eyre is a flawless masterpiece. It has every ingredient a reader could ask for. It's mysterious, romantic, passionate and a great love story.
A wonderful classic. The story beings with orphan, Jane, being raised by an Aunt (by marriage) who has taken on her raising due to a promise to her deceased husband. However, the aunt, nor the cousins ever accept Anne as one of theirs. Anne is shipped off to a religious girl\'s school, where she is half-starved, and taught religious extremes. However, one teacher takes her under her wing, and Jane thrives, to even later become a teacher at the school herself. Jane eventually leaves the school to become a governess, and the rest of the story, is the romance that grows between her, and her master, Mr. Rochester. There are some parts of the book, especially as Jane grows older, that get lengthy, and difficult to read. However, the story line is wonderful, and the twists and turns keep you on the edge of your seat. A great classic book - a must read.
