    Yes, I suppose you can view this book mostly as a love story. That's what I did at age 13 - but that's why I was left disappointed back then¹.

    Or you can view this as an story of form

    Reader, I gave it five stars. Please let me tell you why.

    Jane Eyre is the quintessential Victorian novel. It literally has everything that was typical of the period, but, unlike other novels, it has all the elements in one story. At the centre is the romance between Jane and Rochester, which is enhanced by gothic elements such as the uncannines

    5. Four hundred-odd pages of purely descriptive writing
    4. Overt religious themes and moral preaching
    3. A plain-Jane heroine who stays plain. No makeovers to reveal a hitherto hidden prettiness that only needed an application of hydrogen peroxide and some eyebrow plucking to e

    I could bang Mr. Rochester like a screen door 'till next Tuesday. That's not all I got from this book, honestly...

    I feel like an ass saying this but... who actually thinks this is a cute romance!? What the actual f!!

    Now that this is out of the way.

    Child neglect, near death, a dash of magical realism, the power of love, the powerlessness of the poor, sexual rivalry, mystery, madness and more.
