Jane Eyre - Charlotte Brontë, Joyce Carol Oates, Kathy Mitchell I usually read more contemporary books, so this book had a very different language from what I am used to. However, I understood the book and liked it a lot better than I expected to. I thought, though, that the book had a few boring patches here and there, and was a little too dramatic sometimes. It was sort of like a soap opera taking place two hundred years ago. However, the writing was beautiful and I enjoyed the story overall.
