Jane Eyre

Did anyone else read it? After reading this book I just want to read Jane Austen.

I really liked this book. At first I couldn't really understand Jane's character. She didn't seem to like people or need affection, but she really did - she just buried that. Oh and when her and Mr. Rochester were going to get married and he wanted to get her everything pretty and called her beautiful she spat in his face. It made me so angry. What girl doesn't like being called beautiful and being adored? Why couldn't she receive the beautiful gifts?

I think it was good for her to run away. She grew up and really understood human interaction and relationships so much more. I really liked this quote:

"there is no happiness like that of being loved by your fellow-creatures, and feeling that your presence is an addition to their comfort".

Its such a true statement.

I loved this book. It was very unique and taught a lot about love.
