I’m very sad that it took me so long to read this book. It’s always been one of those novels on the edge of consciousness but never actually made its way onto my kindle or book shelf. I’ve missed out on a good few years of daydreaming about Mr. Rochester!
I also watched the 1996 BBC version with Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens and discovered that not all Jane Eyre films are made equal..but the BBC version is the absolute best (I did manage to watch through a few stinkers though, which was everything apart from the BBC version). I enjoyed the chemistry between the two leads. Nothing can compare to your own imagination though which is why it’s always better to just read the book. Wuthering heights is up next!
