Opinion

From Library Staff

This is a retelling of Jane Eyre set in mid-20th century Scotland. It's interesting to see the ways it echoes Bronte's novel, but it is also a very good novel in its own right. And as an added bonus, there's a lovely Scottish narrator to listen to.

This retelling of Jane Eyre is set in Scotland in the mid-20th Century. It’s fun to notice its similarities to the original as you read, but it’s an interesting, moving and well-written story in its own right, too.

Lovely story, cleaner than a PG13 movie although not completely suitable for my 9 year-old.

This is a complex story of a girl from Iceland orphaned at a young age and taken in by a loving uncle in Scotland. But when her uncle dies, her aunt and cousins turn on her and send her to labor in a boarding school. The book chronicles her running away from one situation after another while she learns about herself and to be more understanding of others. Its quite interesting and I found compelled to finish it.

i riley like the cofer of the movie

thank you.

love,
alexa turano.

Remake of Jane Eyre that was an enjoyable rendition of the story taking place instead in the late 1950's.
