Charlotte Bronte - Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is one of the classics I had wanted to read for a long time. I know the story having watched at least one of the many movie adaptations. I came across the LibriVox audiobook which is read by Elizabeth Klett. It's more than 18 hours of Victorian prose that poured over me and I quite liked it. I won't deny that I might have missed more than one or two details of the somewhat detailed description of this and that and everything. But Jane Eyre is a female character to my liking. Although her beginnings are less than favourable she always tries to decide what's best for her and her personal development - as child, as a schoolgirl, as a dependent gouvernant and as a woman.
