An Apple Books Classic edition.

Charlotte Brontë’s classic is like three novels in one. Above all, it’s a haunting Gothic tale set in an ancient and remote manor house, a story full of suspense, terror, supernatural encounters, and twisted family secrets. But Jane Eyre is also a dark romance in which the road to true love is rife with potholes, as well as a coming-of-age story, tracing a heroine’s development from a shy, isolated teen into a confident woman.

When we first meet Jane, she’s just been sent by her cruel aunt to a boarding school with an even crueler headmaster. But circumstances quickly improve for Jane, whose headstrong nature bucks the social norms of the time. She becomes a teacher and starts working for the brooding, mysterious Mr. Rochester. Jane eventually falls for her employer, but he’s hiding a secret - and it’s a doozy. Brontë’s novel is, quite simply, a page-turner.


  • A classic for a reason.

    I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. I feel like it’s written in a way that may not be as popular now yet, it is still well written. Worth reading.
  • Loved It!

    Read this on vacation and fell absolutely in love. I definitely recommend this to you as an excellent piece of classic literature and also a tragic, but romantic story. Satisfying ending, but many twists and turns throughout the book. Please read this!

  • Captivating

    By ReynosoMartha
    The writer did a very beautiful job captivating the reader with detail and imagination as a friend telling you a story. Although at times it’s very wordy, as Jane goes on and on…I liked it well. Touches plenty on religious beliefs but it was due to the times. Good read for a old classic.

  • I did not expect to love this book (8.5/10)

    I cannot believe that this book was written in the 1800s! Any person can relate to how Jane is feeling in this book. Falling deeply in love hurts, and so does the ending of this book. I now understand the cover of this book, the Thornfield fire… I love the ending, it’s perfect. The characters were all flawed and human like. The book did not feel rushed and had good pacing. There were some parts that were a bit flat for me but other than that, a superb book! I definitely recommend this to people who are starting out with classics.
